Critically acclaimed director Aunrag Kashyap, who has carved a niche for himself with small budget films is now set to dazzle the audience with his first star-studded-multi-crore film, Bombay Velvet.
Kashyap, who has now become the next big thing in Bollywood after the success of Dev D and modest reviews of Gulaal, is gung-ho about striking it big now.
“Yes, after Gulaal, where no body got paid, I am making Bombay Velvet which involves a huge amount of money,” Kashyap told PTI while attending the unveiling ceremony of And magazine which has the director on its cover.
“As of now we have John Abraham, Naseeruddin Shah and Kay Kay Menon on board. But we are in talks with some other big stars as well,” Kashyap added.
The 36-year-old ace director who confessed that his earlier films have a slice of his own life, describes Bombay Velvet as a complete thriller based on real incidents, set in the time of 1960’s.
When asked why did he feel the need of having big stars this time, the director said, “It is my first big budget film and to be honest I am very nervous. I want to do full justice to the money involved.”
When further digged into the topic, the director said, “I have always been critically acclaimed but as an director I have this quench for getting maximum appreciation from my audience.”
