MUMBAI: The vivacious and very talented young Bollywood diva Anushka Sharma has begun auditioning and giving look tests for Anurag Kashyap’s film ‘Bombay Velvet’.
Anushka will be seen paired opposite Ranbir Kapoor for the first time in their careers, and will be a part of Kashyap’s homage film, tracing the characters’ journeys from the 1950’s to the 1970’s. Spotted at the launch of Canon Cameras’ new range, Anushka confirmed the news.
Dressed in a yellow and black-and-white dress, Anushka wore her hair in a fringe.
A source close to the actress revealed, “On Thursday, Anushka was at Anurag’s office at Aram Nagar in Versova. She gave several look tests and slipped in and out of different tops and jeans to figure out a look for her in the film.”
Adds the source, “As the film (‘Bombay Velvet’) is a part of a trilogy that aims at recreating Bombay from the ’50s to the ’70s, there are several looks that are being planned for the cast.”
Though Anurag is presently busy with his film to mark the 100 years of Hindi cinema ‘(Bombay Talkies’), the director is simultaneously working on his next film as well.”
