Anushka Sharma, Ranbir Kapoor's off-screen chemistry sparks

Anushka Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor are paired in the upcoming and earnestly-awaited film ‘Bombay Velvet’. Recently the two met their fans at an organized event to promote the song “Mohabbat Buri Bimari” of their film ‘Bombay Velvet’ slated to hit the multiplexes on May 15, 2015.

Their easy friendship and cool camaraderie was more than obvious to one and all. The duo even accepted the fact that they have become good friends since the shooting for the film. In one snap Anushka is seen pinching Ranbir’s nose.

“He’s easy to work with as he’s my friend.” Anushka said.

The fact that the two have established a comfortable space to work together is true. But initially owing to the brat-like and mischievous nature of Ranbir, and Anushka being a person who likes to be on her own, she did accept that she had once ended up crying for being the butt of his jokes.

“We would fight. I even cried once. I didn’t want to fight with him because we were going to shoot a romantic scene. I couldn’t even fight with him. I started to cry like a chick.” admitted Anushka in an interview.

‘Bombay Velvet’ will bring to the fore the two stars together for the first time ever. The film records the Bombay in 1960s. The story revolves around two characters- a boxer named Johnny Balraj played by Ranbir Kapoor and an aspiring and good jazz singer named Rosie played by Anushka Sharma.

Anushka Sharma’s recent success and Ranbir Kapoor success have already raised the bar of expectations in the public domain. The film ‘Bombay Velvet’ is the first installment of the trilogy entitled ‘Maximum City’. It has been directed by Anurag Kashyap.

“Bombay Velvet is my first film in a trilogy about Bombay, before it became a Metropolis. It's a story that has always fascinated me," Anurag Kashyap said.

The film is an adaptation of the book named ‘Mumbai Fables’ which was written by Gyan Prakash. The film is witnessing a lot of expectations from both within the film industry and the audience. The film records the evolution of the city ‘Bombay’ and the brand ‘Bombay’ from 1950s through 1970s. It in this backdrop that the life of the people, depicted through the lead air of Anushka and Ranbir, of the then Bombay is explored. The human emotions of love, hate, greed, aggression and violence are very inherent to the era that has been explored in the film.
