Ranbir to show his Tapori side in 'Bombay Velvet'
At the very young age, Ranbir Kapoor has made a strong place for himself in the industry. The young star is one of the most successful Bollywood actor today. His last film, 'Rockstar' also set the cash register ringing at the ticket window. Ranbir Kapoor is currently busy shooting for Anurag Basu’s ‘Barfee’ in which he is working with Priyanka Chopra, after that he will start shooting for Dharma Productions’ ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’ with his ex-girlfriend Deepika Padukone.
Apparently, the young star has agreed to star in the Anurag Kashyap's "Bombay Velvet". The film was earlier offered to Aamir Khan but he didn’t give his nod to the director. Later came rumors that Ranveer Singh has been finalized to play a lead role in the film. But now, all the speculations has finally come to an end as Ranbir has confirmed his presence in the film.
Now the latest buzz is that Ranbir Kapoor will be playing a Mumbai Tapori, which in fact will have shades of la Chulbul Pandey from 'Dabangg'. Anurag Kashyap gave the macho bhai of B-town Salman Khan a completely different and dumdaar, dabangg identity which rocketed the superstar to a great, successful height.
Apparently, Ranbir, who is alleged to have given his nod for the project, will have to undergo few workshops for his character. "His character is that of a bold, upfront, street smart guy. His body language and talking style will be very Mumbaiyya," reveals a source.
‘Bombay Velvet’ is a period film based on historian Gyan Prakash’s book ‘Mumbai Fables’ and it’s script is written by Gyan Prakash, S Thanikachalam, Vasan Bala and Anurag Kashyap. The film’s music will be composed by Amit Trivedi.
Talking about the film, Anurag Kashyap says, “Bombay Velvet” is my first film in the trilogy set against Bombay, the city, before it became a metropolis. It’s a story that’s always fascinated me, and we have been developing it for about four years. I am very excited that now, it’s fully ready, and we begin shooting this year.”
‘Bomabay Velvet’ is expected to go on floors by October, 2012; after Ranbir finishes Dharma Productions’ ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’.
