Karan Johar has donned many hats over the years. From director and producer to chat show host and reality show judge, he has succeeded in every role he has taken on. The popular filmmaker will soon be making his acting debut with Anurag Kashyap۪s Bombay Velvet۪, where he will be seen romancing Anushka Sharma.
A source revealed information about Johar۪s character in the film, to Absolute India, saying, While it is known that he plays the character of a Parsi businessman called Kaizad Khambatta, the interesting fact is that he is romantically involved with Anushka, who plays a jazz singer in the film. Karan۪s flamboyant character is going to be very compelling just like his look in the film. He will be seen in a Parsi look with a typical thin moustache. Not only that, his character has grey shades too. There۪s a twist with a romantic triangle in the film.
While Johar has acting experience having acted as a child artiste on television, he also played small cameo roles in films such as Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge۪ (1995) and Luck By Chance۪ (2009). However, Bombay Velvet۪ is the first film to see him in a full-fledged role.
Other than Johar and Anushka Sharma, Bombay Velvet۪ also stars Ranbir Kapoor and Raveena Tandon. The film is slated to release on 28th November.
