Originally made in Malayalam as Kadha Parayumbol, Billu Barber is the story of a village barber, Billu (Irrfan Khan), who claims to being friends with a superstar (SRK) who comes to the village for the shooting of a movie. The villagers try to meet the star through the barber and Billu is busy making plans to weave friendship with the actor to increase his clout in the village.

According to Shahrukh Khan, “the film is a sweet story of friendship…quite similar to the bond shared between Krishna and Sudama.”

The movie also stars Kareena, Deepika, Priyanka and Katrina in guest appearances… doing item numbers. That does sounds like very tempting! Originally, Akshay Kumar and Tabu were pursued for the lead roles, but later SRK and Lara were finalized. Lara plays barber’s wife in the movie.

Billu Barber is produced by Khan himself and directed by Priyadarshan and will be released on February 13th next year.
