During the interview, Ranbir openly talked about his films over the years, and how some of them did not work well at the box office. As he called his film Bombay Velvet a ‘big disaster of Indian cinema’, he was interrupted by a fan in the audience who said that it was because of Karan Johar. Ranbir laughed and said that would be unfair to pin it down on the producer-director who starred as the antagonist in the Anurag Kashyap directorial.
In a video shared by Brut India, Ranbir said, “While working on the film I thought like, ‘Wow, this is amazing,’ you know. Like, Anurag Kashyap was directing. We had great set of actors, you know. See, once you start a film you lose perspective because you surrender to the process. You surrender to the filmmaking, you surrender to the character…So Bombay Velvet was something which…it deserved the fate that it had because it wasn’t a good film.”
