Mumbai, April 17: Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s much awaited film “Bombay Velvet”, which was reportedly planned to be released on Christmas along with Aamir Khan’s “P.K.”, is now set for Nov 28 release, the makers of “Bombay Velvet” announced Wednesday.
On the final day of the shoot of “Bombay Velvet” at CCI Club, Mumbai, the producer Fox Star Studios announced to the cast and crew of the film that both the films will get the release window that they truly deserve.

It is a film that has been made with a lot of love and we are proud to announce that Anurag’s dream and passion is going to come to the theatres on Nov 28.”
