The Director of the movie “Besharam” said in an interview that he’d like to change the way people use this word and give it a new meaning.

I agree.

The box office collections of Besharam notwithstanding, a little bit of besharmi can actually be good for you.

As Ranbir Kapoor puts it, “Besharam is an attitude. It’s where you listen to your heart and follow it.” So how exactly does one go about being Besharam like him ? Go here for some advice.

Okay, not really ! Being Besharam would mean that you don’t worry about others judging you, ridiculing you out of spite or being otherwise unsupportive. “I could make an effort to be liked but I’d rather be hated than inconvenienced.” – Wilhelmina Slater (Ugly Betty) People close to you will accept you for who you are and at the same time also offer constructive criticism but for the rest, I think Ms. Slater got it right. “Do what you feel in your heart to be right- for you’ll be criticized anyway. You’ll be damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

Being Besharam would mean that you put yourself first once in a while. Pamper yourself, for if you don’t can you really expect anyone else to do the same ? Be happy because if you are a mess yourself, how will you be there for those you care about ?

Wearing your heart on your sleeve is Being Besharam. Not being afraid of saying what you feel and standing up for what is right is Being Besharam. Being street-smart means Being Besharam.

Being Besharam could also mean that if you want something, you go ahead and confidently put yourself out there. No over-analysis, not being too concerned about the odds, no unnecessary worrying about the past and no looking back ! A word of caution here, being Besharam may mean taking chances but it certainly doesn’t mean being thoughtless or irresponsible. Too much of anything can be bad for you  😛

Aaja sab ko dikha de ban besharam,
Dil khole seena taane ban besharam.
Aaja thumka laga le ban besharam,
Dil khole seena taane ban besharam….
