Bombay Velvet

It is one film that has been in the news for all kinds of reasons, right from the word go. The concept itself is one that makes us sit up and take note. The 'period' film, based in Bombay (that's how the city was known to the world in the Sixties, not as Mumbai), where a boxer and a jazz singer face the bitter truth that the city can hardly offer them love or hope - that they've been desperately seeking - hasn't been easy to make. From the casting, to the execution, the post-production and now the much-delayed release, a whole gamut of hassles have had to be fought. But Anurag Kashyap is someone who isn't expected to give up on his dreams.
Now, that the teaser poster is out, our appetite is whetted all the more. Here's wishing the team of 'Bombay Velvet' ( the cast includes Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Karan Johar, Raveena Tandon and Kay Kay Menon) the very best.

One of the most eagerly awaited films in recent times.... it finally releases in May, 2015..... I guess.

I think originally the project was to feature Aamir Khan and/or John Abraham. The script has undergone multiple revisions and redrafts, and the filming as well as the editing of the film has been the subject of speculation and gossip.
Nevertheless, it is one film that will surely make more tongues go wagging once it is released.

Ranbir Kapoor is giving Anurag Kashyap the heebie-jeebies, according to the grapevine, as he has supposedly agreed to only do a limited number of promotions for 'Bombay Velvet'- so the problems for the film see far from over.
