Mumbai: project Bombay Velvet, set to release on May 15, but did you know that when he first wrote the film, it wasn't meant to star either Ranbir Kapoor or Anushka Sharma?
"I wrote this film around nine years ago and at that time neither Ranbir and Anushka were around," said Anurag at the film's Goa promotions recently.
"I had written this script with Saif Ali Khan in mind but never got around to showing it to him. I wasn't a big director then. Had also sent the script to Hrithik, who didn't respond. For two years, there was no progress and then I approached Aamir Khan as well," Anurag said.
