Anurag Kashyap is a brilliant director and we loved his performance in ‘Akira’, where he played a villain. However, Anurag is still disappointed with ‘Bombay Velvet’ and even today holds himself responsible for letting Ranbir down.
Notably, Ranbir has also worked with Anurag’s brother Abhinav in ‘Besharam,’ which also failed at the box office.
Talking about the trouble Ranbir faced after these flops, the filmmaker said, “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. “
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.”
Wow, that sure was an honest confession Mr. Kashyap!
