Anushka Sharma, who is playing a jazz singer in BOMBAY VELVET, had a separate call time on the sets from the rest of the team. The reason being the look that she will be seen in, needed at least three hours for her to get ready. Her look is from the 50s.
A source informs, “Most of the film has been shot in Sri Lanka and if Ranbir’s call time was at 9.00 in the morning, for Anushka it used to be 6.00 am. It would start with her fitting into the costume and having her trials. That would be followed by a hair sitting to get the look that fits into the character. There are specifications to the makeup that Anurag Kashyap (director) needed, so that too was a time consuming process.”
Interestingly, Niharika Khan has designed almost 140 costumes for Anushka Sharma in the film.
BOMBAY VELVET stars Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma in lead roles while Karan Johar will play the primary antagonist and Raveena Tandon, Kay Kay Menon and Siddharth Basu will appear in supporting roles. Directed by Anurag Kashyap, the film is set to release on 28th November, 2014.
