Well, we are sure that people will love Karan nonetheless. In the film, we’ll see Karan sporting different colours. Yes, Karan, who usually goes for colour black normally, was made to wear different colours in Anurag‘s Bombay Velvet. Not only that, Karan couldn’t throw a single tantrum on the sets, as being a filmmaker himself he very well knew what a director expected from an actor.
Karan went further on and said, “I wear lot of black but I have worn all kinds of colours in the film. I just kept my mouth shut because I felt that as an actor I can’t have the perspective because I have to follow the vision of the filmmaker, and that’s what I want from the actors myself.”
Based on Gyan Prakash book called Mumbai Fables, Bombay Velvet shows the picture of Bombay in 1960’s and tells a story of a boxer, Johnny Balraj played by Ranbir Kapoor and an aspiring jazz singer, Rosie played by Anushka Sharma. The film will hit theatres on May 15, 2015.
