For updated information on the Bombay Velvet poster contest, please visit our dedicated page here.

Hello folks. We’re very excited to announce a collaboration with Phantom Films and Fox Star Studios India in launching a poster design contest for Anurag Kashyap’s film Bombay Velvet. The film is scheduled to release on 15th May and stars some of the biggest names in Bollywood including Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Karan Johar. Set in 1960’s Bombay, it tells the the story of a boxer, Johnny Balraj (Ranbir Kapoor) and an up-and-coming jazz singer Rosie (Anuskha Sharma) as their fate intertwines in Johnny’s quest to make it big.

Anurag Kashyap is redefining Hindi cinema and we’re thrilled to be able to have our artist community participate in what is our first Bollywood collaboration. The contest will be run on the Cupick platform.
