Anurag’s ‘Bombay Velvet’ Ready to go on Floor

It has been more than a year that filmmaker, Anurag Kashyap has not been directing any movie, but now the director is again to back to action and announced a film called, Bombay Velvet. Another buzz is that Anurag is planning to rope big stars, including John Abraham, Naseeruddin Shah and Kay Kay Menon for the movie.

Bombay Velvet will be based on Mumbai Fables, a book written by author Gyan Prakash, who is a professor of History at Princeton University. The book traces the remarkable cultural history of Mumbai as one of the most important metropolises in the world. Anurag says,

“While Prakash was writing his book, he was simultaneously writing the script for the film. It is always a painful wait for a film to take off. But now that the book will come out (in the market), we will start work soon. After meeting the author and learning about his book, I dug deep into how this city (Mumbai) became a metropolis.”
