Anurag Kashyap's magnum opus "Bombay Velvet" fell flat on its face resulting in a dismal box office performance.

Although the film has been praised for its richly constructed sets and lead pair Ranbir Kapoor- Anushka Sharma's chemistry, the neo-noir thriller hasn't been able to draw audience, forcing multiplex owners to take it off theatres.

The Kapoor scion, who didn't speak much about the film's failure, has reportedly found support in ex-girlfriend Deepika Padukone's rumoured beau Ranveer Singh.

According to a Daily Bhaskar report, the "Dil Dhadakne Do" actor said he loved the film and the performances of the actors. 

He might have his industry friends backing him up, but on the inside, the young actor has been insecure. Talking to NDTV, he said he has no idea where he was headed, career-wise.

"There's a sense of insecurity that's starting to trend inside of me. I'm feeling a sense of friction where I really don't know what's happening with my career. I know what's happening with my work but I don't know what's going to happen with my career," he further explained. However, this was ahead of the film's release.

In other news, Karan Johar, who played Kaiza Khambatta in "Bombay Velvet", is relieved with the response his acting chops got him but the backlash has left him disappointed.

"Right from the start, there was a shroud of negativity around the film. Even the audience has been discussing its box-office numbers, which I feel shouldn't be their problem. Anurag's vision can be criticised, but he doesn't deserve this kind of backlash," he told Hindustan Times few days ago.
