‘I have failed Ranbir Kapoor’
The movie based on Gyan Prakash’s book Mumbai Fables was directed and co-produced by Kashyap, who has taken responsibility for failing Ranbir Kapoor in this film.
This should be noted that the ‘Barfi’ hero is being regarded as a lead actor of Bollywood after Khans. King of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan himself has glorified him on stage. However, he could not yet make big success on Box Office, except Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, in about 10 years after he debuted with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya in 2007.
“I think we, as a team, have let him down in many ways. Ranbir is a fantastic artist, a brilliant human being and an actor who wanted to try out something different.
“He wanted to experiment which not many stars would want to do. And we failed him terribly. I feel completely responsible for this.” Kashyap said while talking to PinkVilla
Anurag further added, “Not just him, now when I hear studios shutting, I somewhere feel that I am definitely one of the reasons behind it. When the stories come up and there’s Bombay Velvet’s poster right at the top of the article, it does hurt.”
