Karan Johar will be seen as a rich businessman who plays a crucial role in Ranbir Kapoor's life in the film, with shades of negativity.
"It was great to be directed by Anurag. My work was mostly with Ranbir Kapoor... so he is my favourite co-star and my director Anurag, Phantom Films and Fox Star Studio... thankful... I don't have choice," Karan said at the wrap up party of Bombay Velvet.
K Jo who is a little apprehensive about his role being cut short in the film by Anurag says, "I hope Anurag doesn't cut my role... if that happens then this will be my last appearance for this film. Anurag never scolded at me it was nice working with him."
Karan's first movie appearance was over a decade-and-half ago in the Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol-starrer 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge'. Then he did cameos in 'Om Shanti Om', 'Luck By Chance' and Kal Ho Na Ho among others.
The Bombay Velvet team, Vijay Singh, Anurag Kashyap, Vikas Bahl, Karan Johar, Ranbir Kapoor, Vikramaditya Motwane and others were present in the wrap up party.
Anurag Kashyap said, "The team has just finished shooting for Bombay Velvet. I don't know what to say I had a tough class (while doing the film). I hope everybody likes the film and is happy about it. It is a love story... beyond this I cannot tell you anything. We will release the first look in October."
Bombay Velvet, first in a planned trilogy, tells the story of how Bombay became a Metropolis and set against the backdrop of love, greed, violence and Jazz,. "
The film is co produced by Fox Star Studio and Phantom Films.
