Looking buffed and grimy, Ranbir Kapoor finally made an appearance on our Twitter accounts as Johnny Balraj.
Ranbir, who till now has stayed away from the eight-pack rat race, seems to have finally given in. In this first look from Bombay Velvet, he looks all toned up and in the fight mode.
As Bombay Velvet flashes in psychedelic colours, Ranbir is seen leaning on a fighter's cage.
The first look of much awaited neo-noir drama will be unveiled Thursday.
Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap confirmed the news on Twitter Wednesday.
"Give it up for the Big Shot of #BombayVelvet Johnny Balraj. First look out tomorrow @foxstarhindi @fuhsephantom," Kashyap tweeted.
Based on Gyan Prakash's book Mumbai Fables, the film explores Mumbai in the early 1950s and 1960s.
Ranbir will be seen as boxer and street-fighter Johnny Balraj.
Also starring Anushka Sharma, Karan Johar, Kay Kay Menon, Manish Chaudhary, Siddhartha Basu and Remo Fernandes, the film is jointly produced by Phantom Films and Fox Star India.
Karan, who is making his acting debut with the film , is said to be playing a villain.
Bombay Velvet is scheduled for theatrical release May 15.
