Ranbir Kapoor would be seen acting alongside father Rishi and mother Neetu in the upcoming film Besharam, but the yesteryear Bollywood stars will not play onscreen parents to their real son.

Ranbir would be sharing screen-space with his parents for the first time in his career. "It is going to be family time. They are not playing my parents, but they are playing very interesting characters," he said.

Besharam will be Abhinav Kashyap's second film, after making his directorial debut with Dabangg. The film, featuring newbie Pallavi Sharda opposite Ranbir, is likely to release in October this year.

Meanwhile, Ranbir said he is not that disappointed by Barfi!'s failure at Oscars. "We are happy that the film did well and the audience liked it. The film was a pleasant surprise. We are happy it was India's official entry but the reports of plagiarism disappointed me. Dada (Anurag Basu) had made the film with love and hardwork," he said.
