Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet starring Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Karan Johar has been extensively shot in the island nation of Sri Lanka. And the makers went on to cast many Sri Lankans in the film. To create awareness, various advertisements were placed in the newspapers about cast requirements. Since the film will showcase the Bombay of the 60’s and its dynamic cosmopolitan life, consulates of India, Russia, USA and UK were approached to get Indian and foreign characters. Many tourists and foreigners from abroad who have settled in Sri Lanka were contacted to feature in the movie.
Bombay Velvet is produced by Fox Star Studio and Phantom Films and will hit the theatres on November 28, 2014.
