Interesting!. Anurag Kashyap and Neeraj Pandey are filmmakers with diverse genre’s. Neeraj Pandey’s upcoming RUSTOM starring Akshay Kumar, brings an uncanny similarity with Anurag Kashyap’s BOMBAY VELVET that highlights a strange partnership between radical and reasonable cinema.

Neeraj Pandey’s much awaited next with Akshay Kumar is based on the famous 1959 Naval Commander Nanavati case who murdered the lover of his wife, the movie is set to kick off its shoot shortly. A rewind of Anurag Kashyap’s gorgeously misfired escapist mainstream dream BOMBAY VELVET starring Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma reveals a flash of resemblance.
The Nanavati case inspired the song ‘Sylvia’ in BOMBAY VELVET. Picturized on Anushka Sharma and sung by Neeti Mohan, the song gave momentum to a dramatic moment in the film. ‘Sylvia’ was the name of Nanavati’s wife and Anurag has reportedly included the song after being inspired by the tabloid perception of the story.
Devils think alike.. They say.. but hoping a different result this time.. BOMBAY VELVET failed to make the lady luck smile.. hope RUSTOM fulfills the expectations.
