According to the sources, the driver’s role was very small, but Vivaan insisted he wanted to play it.
Anurag Kashyap, the director of ‘Bombay Velvet’, confirmed the news and said, “My casting director came to me and said, ‘Vivaan wants to do Anushka’s driver’s role. I said, ‘It’s too small. Why would he want to do it?’ Then Vivaan spoke to me and said, ‘Dad said there are lots of roles in the film and you must do one of them. I want to do this role.’ That is when a few roles were combined to justify his role and he is very good in the film. Coincidentally, Naseer sahab had also done a small role in ‘That Girl In Yellow Boots’, where he had shot with me for a day.”
