Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra's 'Barfi!' – watch the first trailer
Starring Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role, the film tells the story of a speech and hearing-impaired man and the two women in his life, played by Priyanka Chopra and southern star Ileana D'Cruz.
The trailer - which has no spoken dialogue - shows Kapoor sporting a golden plait and dressed in sleeveless, patterened sweaters.
Chopra, who portrays a character with learning difficulties, is seen in a wardrobe of cardigans, dresses and with short, curly hair.
Speaking at the official launch of the trailer, Kapoor said: "The film is about Murphy … But everyone calls him Barfi … because he can't say Murphy properly.
"These are characters who have disabilities, but that is not what the film is about. You'll see different shades of life, happiness, sadness, it has comedy…. seeing happiness and giving happiness… that is what the film is about."
Barfi! is expected to debut in September 2012.
