Filmmaker Dibakar Banerjee says his story in the film Bombay Talkies (which consists of four short films) couldn’t have happened without actor Ranbir Kapoor, who he says, appears in every frame of the movie. Banerjee has directed one of the four short films in Bombay Talkies. Talking about it, Banerjee said, “He (Ranbir) is totally associated. He is a shadow of God associated with the film. He is there in every frame. He is there as the ultimate hero against this average common man. Without Ranbir this could not have happened.” Banerjee’s film features Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead role. “I have been wanting to work with Nawazuddin since Black Friday. It was a spiritual experience for both of us,” he said. Talking about the Aamir Khan-starrer promotional song for Bombay Talkies, the director said, “He (Aamir) is not there in my film or any of other the other films. He is there in the promotional song. He has been such an enthusiastic supporter of the project. His presence will be lovely for this film,” he said.
Bombay Talkies releases on May 3.
