    Bombay Velvet, the period drama finally gets a release date. The Anurag Kashyap directed film starring Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma will hit the theaters on May 15, 2015.

    Bombay Velvet was supposed to release during Christmas this year but the makers moved the dates ahead to November 2014 to avoid the clash with Aamir Khan starrer PK. However the film has a new release date now.

    Confirming this news, Anurag Kashyap said to a leading daily, "The film needed time, given all the work that was pending. Now that we have locked the release date, everyone associated with it is thrilled. An exciting marketing plan is being crafted to promote it in a way no film has been presented before."

    The film's producer Vijay Singh says that it was necessary to recreate the Mumbai of the 60s and the visual effects to recreate this would be complete only by January end.

    "It will definitely be the biggest release, in terms of prints, of the first half of 2015," Vijay Singh said. 

    The film which will hit the theaters in May 2015 might have a tough competition with the IPL season starting during that time. However the producer argues saying, "Summer holidays are a good time to release a film and people would have had enough of cricket by then."

    "It's a Ranbir Kapoor film, a beautiful love story set against the rise of our city. It's authentic cinema with amazing performances and we are all excited about the May 15 opening," he further adds.

    Filmmaker Karan Johar has a pivotal role in Bombay Velvet.
