Veering away from the romantic hero roles that we have seen him essaying in his earlier films,Ranbir Kapoor will now be playing a street fighter in Anurag Kashyaps forthcoming film,Bombay Velvet.
It is an intense role in which I am playing an ambitious street-fighter.
Its a film based in the 60s. The role requires me to be a fighter,boxer,somebody who is charged up,ambitious and agressive, Kapoor revealed.
Apart from Ranbir Kapoor,Bombay. It also features actress Anushka Sharma.
Kapoor and Sharma play lovers whose lives intermingle with the evolution of the city of Bombay,through the 50s to early 70s.
It is the story of how the city became a Metropolis and is set against the backdrop of love,greed,violence and jazz.
This will be the first film of a trilogy,as planned by Kashyap.
Amit Trivedi will be composing the music of the film,which will be reminiscent of the golden sound of 60s.
The film is produced by Fox Star Studios and Phantom Films and will go on floors in July 2013.
The makers are planning to release it worldwide on December 25,2014.
