News Helpline | February, 07 2015

Bollywood heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor happens to be talk-of-the-town for his upcoming release ‘Roy’. The actor who was last seen in ‘Besharam’ which released in 2013 will soon be seen in ‘Roy’ in a major role. The film  happens to be one of the most awaited film’s of this year in Bollywood.

After ‘Roy’, the dashing actor will be seen in an very unique role in Anurag Kashyap’s  ‘Bombay Velvet’. The actor will be seen in a character named Johnny Balraj, a rough-and- tough  street fighter in the film.

Talking about his character, Ranbir in an interview to a leading tabloid menytoined that it wasn’t easy for him to portray the character of Johnny Balraj in ‘Bombay velvet’ as the character happens to be complete opposite from what Ranbir is in his real life.

As Ranbir said, “My character in ‘Bombay Velvet’, Johnny Balraj, was new to me. It was not like my personality. He is arrogant, brash and had grown up in the slums on Falkland Road in Bombay in the 1950s. I could identify with my characters in a ‘Wake Up Sid’ or a ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, but playing Johnny Balraj took me time to find my rhythm, but it was very exciting.”

The film has pretty actress Anushka Sharma in lead opposite Ranbir. The film is based on book ‘Bombay Fabels’ written by historian Gyan Prakash.

‘Bombay Velvet’, is been directed by Anurag Kashyap and it will hit big screens on 15th may.
