Ranbir, why is your character called Barfi! in the film?
Ranbir: Actually the character is called Murphy. But since he is a deaf-mute, he pronounces his name as Barfi! … he can’t differentiate between ‘M’ and ‘B’. He is a happy-go-lucky guy, he has a big heart and the film is certainly a romantic comedy. Barfi’s only purpose in life is to make people happy. Even in his sorrows, you will see a sense of smile, comedy and happiness.
