While Karan Johar apologized to
Raj Thackeray for the characters
in Wake up Sid referring to Mumbai
by its old name Bombay, director
Anurag Kashyap is in no mood to
change the title of his film Bombay
Velvet to Mumbai Velvet.
The director says that the film
is based on the 1940s and Mumbai
at that time was referred to as
Bombay and it is just logical to
title the film Bombay Velvet. However,
the film will not go on floors until
the year 2011 as Anurag has signed
a nine-film deal with UTV and he
may not have the time to begin the
project in the immediate future.
Moreover, Danny Boyle, who was to
have worked along with Anurag Kashyap
is also busy with four projects.
The director also revealed that
they have not approached any actor
– Shah Rukh Khan or Aamir
Khan – to star in the film
