Anurag Kashyap's 'Bombay Velvet' is one of the most anticipated films of this year. The period drama is set in Bombay of the 60s.
Since the makers wanted the film look authentic, they decided to recreate the entire city. It was a huge task to replicate the city and they left no stone unturned. The set of 'Bombay Velvet' was constructed in Sri Lanka. The team recreated Bombay in an area of 9.5 acres there.
It took 11 months to construct the sets which was built from scratch. While they laid the foundations of buildings and laid out roads for the set, they even looked into minute details and like signage and interiors and décor.
The team of 'Bombay Velvet' went to great lengths to replicate Bombay of the 1960’s and Anurag has made sure that everything is in sync with that era.
