Today, at the trailer launch of Raman Raghav 2.0, director Anurag Kashyap was in a jovial mood when he was interacting with the media. On being asked about his last directorial, Bombay Velvet, which didn't fare well at the box-office, Anurag mocked his film and said, "Last year, the kind of 'Classic' film I made, no one could forget that. Making Raman Raghav 2.0 is like seeking redemption."

Kashyap further added, "Only the director is the responsible for a flop film. If a director wants, he can say No to direct a film and take a stand."


Quite a tongue-in-cheek moment indeed!

That's what happens when u join Karan auntie and gang..

Yes I agree...there is something really creepy about this guy..I don't like him.

This man gives me the creeps

bombay velvet would've been better if anurag didn't focus as much on the johnny-rosie love story...

BV movie was good, but casting went terribly wrong..imagine Ajay doing RKs role and villain would have been some veteran.. The movie would have been different..

Has anyone figured out why BV flopped ? I mean, films like Shandaar and Kill Dill flopped because of their stupid plot. But what about this one ?

Mainly because BV was ahead of its time. Maybe few years down the line, BV would have done better.

no, filmmakers need to stop using that excuse. this film was just purely bad. the story line got really messed up in the 2nd half, the actors were terribly miscast, and there was too much lifting from other hollywood movies like scarface. even critics like anupama chopra found it terrible.

Next time when casting pick a good actor that fits the role than trying to be friends with Kjo and picking Ranbir for money sake. You, Anurag is a fantastic film maker you joined the wrong group. Now that you have been served a cold turkey by the 'mean girls' troupe you can get back to doing great films.

Actually Ranbir was highly praised for his performance.

He is a Kapoor lad, industry tried to not bury him in the hole he is in already. Ranbir can act but he was MISCAST! He is not as versatile as some of his fanatics like you think. Acceptance has gotten him back to doing urban flicks like his next two releases. That is his territory.

Bombay velvet wasn't bad TBH, it was just woefully miscast.
