The cast was in a very humorous mood and there was healthy banter on the stage. Karan Johar who is playing a grey character in the movie said that when Anurag came and narrated the script to him, he was under the impression that Anurag wanted him to be the producer and had no idea that he was to play the role of Khambata.

Karan Johar admits he has no friends in Bollywood at Bombay Velvet trailer launch

28 April 2015 2:33 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

You find it difficult to believe it when someone as successful as him says it. He has done it before pointing to a stark reality of the Indian film industry that exists but few dare to acknowledge it. Since the time he has severed his 'umbilical cord' from the star system of Bollywood, Karan Johar has been quite forthright and refreshing about his views on the industry and the way it functions. It was no different this time.

The occasion was the launch of the trailer of Bombay Velvet at a Mumbai suburban hotel. He is playing a key role in the film. The entire cast and crew was present including Ranbir Kapoor who was rumored to have had serious differences with the filmmakers over the final cut of the film. Even if he had them, there was no evidence of that in the way he readily answered questions of »
