Filmmaker Karan Johar gave in to the diktats of Raj Thackeray and
apologised for using the word Bombay instead of Mumbai in his
recently released film Wake Up Sid. However, director
Anurag Kashyap is adamant to stick to the title Bombay
Velvet in spite of the possible threat from MNS.
Anurag is not going to change the title of a part of his feature
film which is scheduled to start next year. He said that he
wouldn"t call his film Mumbai Velvet because Bombay Velvet
is set in a time even before Raj Thackeray was born. The city was
called Bombay then.
The director is willing to take the MNS head-on. He said that he
would resort to a legal recourse if the outfit turns unreasonable.
He added that the Mumbai trilogy would begin only by the middle of
next year, as it is a big budget film.
However, titles for the other two parts have not been finalised.
Writer Gyan has been researching intensely on the project for two
years. It was reported that Danny Boyle, who won Oscar Award for
Slumdog Millionaire, is making the film.
