Bombay Velvet movie

Bombay Velvet is an upcoming Bollywood movie directed and co-produced by Anurag Kashyap, based on historian Gyan Prakash's book Mumbai Fables. It is the story of the rise of an ordinary man named Johnny Balraj, played by Ranbir Kapoor. Ranbir looks convincing as a street-fighter. He plays the character of the risk-taking daredevil. His co-star Anushka Sharma plays his love interest in the film. The film also stars Karan Johar who will play the primary antagonist. The movie is slated to release on May 15.

In Tamasha Movie

Imtiaz Ali's next film, titled Tamasha will be shot extensively in a European Island. The former lovers Ranbir and Deepika will again reunite for the movie. While the team will complete the rest of the shooting schedule within India itself.

Ranbir and Rishi Kapoor

Ranbir Kapoor has been dreaming of re-launching his paternal grandfather Raj Kapoor's prestigious production house, RK Films. Though Ranbir preferred to keep mum, his excited father Rishi Kapoor spilled the beans on reviving the RK banner in a recent interview. "A remake of Awara is on our minds, and in all likelihood, we will be doing it for our banner, RK Films." What better way to re-launch the respected banner than the Awara remake. In the new Awara, Ranbir and his dad will reprise their grandfathers roles - Ranbir will play the new-age Raj Kapoor, while Rishi will reprise Prithviraj Kapoor's character.
