Looks like Ranbir Kapoor‘s upcoming film Barfee has got a release date. The film is going to release on August 31 and not on July 13, as it was originally planned. As a result, Akshay Kumar–Sonakshi Sinha starrer Joker has been pushed from August 31 to September 14 and Madhur Bhandarkar‘s Kareena Kapoor starrer Heroine will release on September 21.
Ranbir had been trying to get the film’s release date postponed since quite some time so that he would get time to promote it.
A source was quoted saying, "This film is very close to his heart. Ranbir is playing a deaf and mute character in the film and has given one of his best performances so far. It’s an unusual film and coming after Rockstar, which got him a lot of acclaim, it means a lot to him."
