The much anticipated film, Bombay Velvet, failed to impress the audience and critics at the box office. It was Anurag’s biggest budget film. The movie is set in the 1960s and is a large screen adaptation of Gyan Prakash’s “Mumbai Fables”. The story is about a man with big dreams and the extent he is willing to go to be successful. It marked Karan Johar’s big acting debut with a villainous role.
Earlier, speaking about Bombay Velvet’s failure, he said in an interview, “Money is the biggest nightmare. The more you minimize the cost of the film, it works. I just made an expensive film which is probably the biggest loss-making film in the history of cinema. You cannot understand the nightmare I go through every day knowing about all the money lost. I will never do that again but it teaches you a lesson and weighs down on you.”
