Karan Johar was seen in a negative role in director Anurag Kashyap's 2015 film Bombay Velvet. Karan posted on Twitter: "@anuragkashyap72 in london!! About to start filming soon!! Write another role fast for me! The actor in me is exploding"
Tamasha features Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone as Ved and Tara, who meet in Corsica and fall in love with each other after a holiday fling. It has been directed by Imtiaz Ali. Ranbir's previous releases, including Besharam, Roy and Bombay Velvet failed to impress audiences. However, with Tamasha, Ranbir seems to have hit the nail at the head
Featuring Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Karan Johar, Bombay Velvet opened to negative reviews and failed at the box office too. "I failed as a producer terribly because Anurag could have made Bombay Velvet one of his best films. I handicapped him and will never do it again," said Vikas Bahl
"I am glad there is an actor like Ranbir who is taking the risk. There are not many actors, who would do it. He is not like Salman who is doing same thing film after film. He is boring. How can you do that? It is not paying off but at least he is getting the satisfaction of doing those films. Very few actors do that"
Black Friday released in India in 2007, three years after its international release, after the Supreme Court allowed the film to be shown in theatres only after the TADA court passed its judgment in the case. After the Black Friday incident, I'm not ready to go through it again," said Anurag Kashyap
"I just did an expensive film which probably is the biggest loss making movie in the history of cinema. The nightmare that I go through, no one can understand. So that is something I don't want to do ever again. It teaches you a lesson. I will make films with studios," said Anurag Kashyap
"Anurag is much more present in the media. It kind of created an anti-incumbent effect. He is an emotional person. He does not hold back and what he has on his mind. That can get you enemies and they took it out in a personal manner," said Dibakar Banerjee
"There was a lot said and then there was this need in me to make a hit film, a successful film and people had told me, 'Anurag, you need to make a film with a super star'. I did see what happened," the filmmaker said with a laugh. "It really doesn't matter. But now, I feel liberated. I am writing more"
"I am happy and proud to be working with everyone, be it on Bombay Velvet or Besharam. The world of Bombay Velvet was not enticing. It did not have songs and all. It seems that I did less promotion for it but that is not the case. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani had songs and, so it worked," he said
"I might make a film, but people might say it's just my film. But I've always believed that as a filmmaker I'm in a very different zone as compared to others, because when a film works, the credit goes to the entire team. But when it fails, only the director is to blame, because only he had the power to say 'no'," said Anurag Kashyap
Are you famous? Will you set the dance floor ablaze? Do you pack a pistol in your purse for the gunfight that will inevitably ensue? If your answer was 'none of the above' then we're very much afraid that you won't make the cut. Hell's Club is strictly for the terminally cool, terminally bad-ass or just terminal
