The Anurag Kashyap directed crime-drama starring Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Karan Johar, is set in the 1960s Bombay. Based on historian Gyan Prakash’s book “Mumbai Fables”, the film takes inspiration from the crime-thriller “The Roaring Twenties” , subtly presenting iconic retro Bollywood scenes in a darker tone.
Anurag Kashyap reacted through Facebook saying, “Maybe our experimenting with the narrative didn`t work for most but i firmly believe in the film. This is the film i wanted to make and i am glad i got to make it. No i am not depressed or hiding, this has taught us a lot and is my absolute personal favourite, there have been no regrets whatsoever.”
