Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet has been much in the talks, even as the release date comes closer! This time, it’s the film’s multiple edits that’s being drawing a lot of attention in Bollywood.
We already knew that Ranbir was not pleased with how the film came out, which was a big deal because the Kapoor boy has been banking heavily on this film. He was so caught up in the film that he has completely disappeared from the big screen for a very long time. So, the film went for re-shooting.
And now, there are more than 35 cuts of the film that Kashyap can choose from! A source from the team reveals: “After the film’s re-shooting, there is so much material to choose from. The film has been in the news for all the wrong reasons so Anurag doesn’t want to take any chance. Prerna has made over 30 different edits — with each one having a different take and perspective.”
Anurag brought in Prerna Saigal for the editing of his film. And that’s it. The international version of the film is being edited by Thelma Schoonmaker, the Oscar-winner who has edited films like Goodfellas and The Departed! Now now, that’s a lot of money spent over the film. Let’s hope it does justice to the money spend and expectations raised!
We wonder which one will make it to the theatres. We’d suggest him to let Ranbir choose!
