While a majority portions of Bombay Velvet was filmed on sets created in Sri Lanka, parts of it have been shot in Mumbai. Recently Ranbir Kapoor was snapped while shooting in Mumbai’s by-lanes of the Dadar Parsi Colony, a place that exudes an old world charm with several bungalows and two-storied buildings. Ranbir was seen walking past the famous Dadar Parsi Agiary looking dapper in his 60s costume, attired in a waistcoat, shirt and trouser.
Interestingly, more than 400 vintage cars were present on the sets of Bombay Velvet in Sri Lanka, for several crucial scenes.
Bombay Velvet is directed by Anurag Kashyap and produced by Fox Star Studios and Phantom Films. It is slated to release on November 28 this year. The shoot wrapped up on April 15.


Suniel Shetty injured his leg on the sets of Koyelaanchal

In Koyelaanchal, there’s a scene where Suniel Shetty runs after a moving car and tries to grab the driver. The actor refused to use a double and did the scene on his own without realising the repercussions. Shetty was dragged for a short distance during the chase, but after that he couldn’t hold on and fell down, which resulted in a nasty swelling on his leg. However, he continued to shoot for the scene for three nights consecutively even though he found it difficult to walk.. “He’s 50 plus but he has the passion and strength to do tough action scenes without a using a double,” said Asshu Trikha, the director of the film.
