Anurag Kashyap's much-awaited movie "Bombay Velvet" hasn't seen the light of the day yet. The movie was scheduled to release in theatres in November 2014, however, it got postponed to May 15, 2015, due to pending VFX work. Talking about the movie the filmmaker says his first choice to play the male lead was Saif Ali Khan.

He says that it was an expensive film and he someone who is not just a good actor but also made it possible for him to raise that kind of money.

"'Bombay Velvet' was expensive from the beginning. It is the most tight budget film of my career. It is a Rs.300 crore movie that we have made into Rs.90 crore. I wanted someone who was not only a good actor but also made it possible for me to raise that kind of money," Anurag said.

"My first choice when I wrote the film in 2006 was Saif Ali Khan. From there it went to Aamir and Hrithik. This film has gone around before landing with Ranbir. We also tried to make it with Ranveer Singh but we could raise only Rs.40 to 50 crore," he added.

"Bombay Velvet" also features Anushka Sharma, Karan Johar and Raveena Tandon in lead roles. It is based on Gyan Prakash's book "Mumbai Fables".
