While Ranbir Kapoor’s recent back injury and subsequent physiotherapy session gave us a hint that he’s doing an action sequence, little could we guess that Ranbir’s character is that of a street fighter!
In his upcoming film Bombay Velvet, which is being directed by Anurag Kashyap, Ranbir Kapoor plays the role a street fighter and his fans shall get to see a lot of action sequences! Apparently, the movie is set in the 60’s and Ranbir’s role will be that of an angry, aggressive and ambitious young man! Much like our very own angry young man!
Explaining his role, Ranbir Kapoor says, “It is an intense role in which I am playing an ambitious street-fighter.It’s a film based in the 1960s. The role requires me to be a fighter, boxer, somebody who is charged up, ambitious and aggressive,” Ranbir Kapoor is paired opposite, the beautiful and charming, Anushka Sharma! The two, obvious as it may seem, play lovers in the backdrop of a rising metropolis which is mired in violence and greed.
The film portrays how the lives of two lovers are changed with a change in the face of Bombay of 1950-70, which is fast evolving into a metropolis. This film is, supposedly, the first film of a trilogy planned by Anurag Kashyap. Even the film’s music would be reminiscent of 1960s! It is expected to hit the screens sometime in July this year. It would be interesting to see this young Kapoor go back in time!
