We saw the thrilling and much awaited trailer of Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet, starring Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Karan Johar. Ranbir launched the trailer in style, during the India Vs Bangladesh cricket match, where he joined former cricketers Shoaib Akhtar and Akash Chopra for the ‘commentary’ .
As the match progressed, Ranbir revealed many startling facts and personal experiences from the movie shoot. Ranbir also spoke about his co-star Anushka Sharma, whose boyfriend was out on the fields, playing the match.
Ranbir said, “My favorite cricketer is Mahendra Singh Dhoni. However, my co-star Anushka Sharma is a good bowler with medium spin. Cricket was our favourite pastime on the sets of Bombay Velvet. Not many people know that Anushka is a great cricket player, I don’t know how but she plays really good cricket – bowling. She’s a medium spinner. She never took my wicket, but doosron ki wicket leti rehti thi.”
On a more serious note, Ranbir also spoke of his role in Bombay Velvet. He said, “I think there is a common notion that an actor needs to have a macho look if he is performing an action role. However, I think the emotional connect is more important to make the fight scenes more believable. I don’t wish to build my body and then perform action roles. If my film has action in it, then it is important that there is a good reason behind all the action.”
Well, that’s a good point, don’t you think? The much awaited movie is all set to release on May 15.
