Karan Johar revealed that his co-star Ranbir brought a few suggestions to the table that we might just see in the final cut of the movie.
Karan said, “"My character, Khambatta is humorous and intrigued in the movie. Ranbir co-directed the movie. I used to get one direction from Anurag & three others from him.”
Karan, who is making his acting debut with this big budget film, went the Kareena Kapoor way and opted to do this film for minimal charge of just Rs. 11.
Karan was quoted as saying, "I have done Bombay Velvet for Rs.11. I'm not only inspired but also cheap.”
While Karan took humorous digs at the cast and even himself, Ranbir was all praises for his director. "After a long time I took a role only based on the amazing script of the movie”, the actor said.
Ranbir reportedly read the ‘very interesting’ script on-board a flight. The first thing he did on landing, was to call up Anurag and agree to star in the movie.
At the trailer launch event, Anurag mentioned that Anushka was one of the first actors to sign this film, and Karan, the last.
