Actor Kay Kay Menon, who plays the role of an investigative officer in filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s much-talked-about film BOMBAY VELVET, says that he agrees with the latter’s decision to release BOMBAY VELVET in May next year. Justifying the decision to postpone the release of the film citing pending VFX work, which was initially set for a November 2014 release, Kay Kay says that Anurag shows his work only when he is a hundred percent satisfied about it.
What’s more, when asked about the film being postponed Kay Kay said that he “doesn’t regret the delay”. He said, “They must have thought of it before making any decision. To show 1960s is not easy, so post production will take time and Anurag will not release till he is satisfied with his work and that would be the reason they must have postponed it… The film is based in 1960s, so the treatment is also different.”
It’s noted that the duo have worked together in films like BLACK FRIDAY and GULAAL earlier. Talking about his work-relation with Anurag, Kay Kay said, “This is my fourth film with Anurag. We have a different connection and our working style is different. Without saying or talking much, we understand each other’s silence. It’s all about creativity.”
Kashyap’s BOMBAY VELVET is set in the 1960s and is shot in Sri Lanka. The film also features Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles.
