He is a fighter, with dreams of making it big in the city of lights, while she is the beautiful jazz singer every man wants. Theirs is the perfect love story… But not for long!
Bombay of the 60s is brought to life beautifully onscreen by lead actors Anushka Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor in the first trailer of Anurag Kashyap’s much-awaited ‘Bombay Velvet’.
The lights, the glamour, the charm, men in dapper suits and women with bouffant hairdos – all of it is reminiscent of a retro Bombay.
Producer-director Karan Johar plays the film’s baddie in his first full-fledged role onscreen. Greasy hair and a suspicious moustache, Karan Johar plays Parsi businessman Kaizad Khambatta, who promises to make the simple Johnny Balraj, one of the big guys, but of course he has some tricks up his sleeve.
This is the first time that Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma will be seen sharing space onscreen and we have to admit the pair definitely looks good together. The electricity and romance have us wanting more. The duo is also seen kissing quite a few times, but nobody’s complaining.
Watch the trailer:
The screenplay of ‘Bombay Velvet’, that has been in the making for the last five years, is jointly written by Anurag Kashyap, Karan Johar and Vikramaditya Motwane.
Film’s lead actress Anushka Sharma also tweeted the movie’s first poster.

Raveena Tandon, Manish Choudhary, and TV producer Siddharth Basu will also be seen in supporting roles in the film.
The movie has music by Amit Trivedi, who has concentrated on jazz music for Anushka’s character Rosie, a singer. Bombay Velvet, which is a large screen adaptation of Gyan Prakash’s ‘Mumbai Fables’, will release on May 15.
