Anurag Kashyap and Danny Boyle’s next film, Bombay Velvet, which stars Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan in the third and first leads respectively, will have John Abraham playing the second lead. John will be playing a real-life hero of the masses in the film and is now working on changing his contemporary mannerisms for the film is set in the 1960s.
Even though the film didn’t do well, they promised to work together on another film. That’s when John was chosen for Bombay Velvet. Some people told John that Aamir had replaced him but John knew the truth. He was the only actor who took Anurag seriously when Anurag was still struggling. So Anurag would never drop him. Anurag has even got some of the writers who criticized him for No Smoking to join the Bombay Velvet team. John has also reduced his fee for the role and Anurag is known to not charge any money until the film does well. Looks like this will be one interesting film!
