Last week, the makers of Bombay Velvet revealed the first look of Ranbir Kapoor who plays Johnny Balraj in the film. Now, the audience also get a glimpse into Anushka Sharma, who portrays the character of Rosie in the much-delayed Anurag Kashyap film.
Meanwhile, now that the Central Board of Film Certification has ordered the word ‘Bombay’ to be edited from a song that was supposed to be aired on television, it remains to be seen if ‘Bombay Velvet’ will be asked to be changed to ‘Mumbai Velvet’.
Celebrities took to Twitter to express their views
Vivek Agnihotri: Till date I haven’t used ‘Mumbai’. For I came to Bombay not Mumbai. I just can’t see it as anything else.
Shruti Seth: The CBFC has added the proper noun “Bombay” to the list of things it considers unsuitable for impressionable Indian minds to contemplate. So what happens to #BombayVelvet now that #CBFC has #Bombaybeepedout.
Anurag Kashyap: Bombay Bombay Bombay.
Satyadeep Misra: Coz ‘Mumbai Velvet’ just doesn’t sound the same!
