"Ranbir got a trainer from Kenya to train with him for almost four months. He will be sporting a lean, muscular built in 'Bombay Velvet'. In the film, he plays a character who is into street fighting," said the source close to the film's production team.

"Bombay Velvet" also features Anushka Sharma in lead role while Karan Johar will play the primary antagonist. Raveena Tandon, Kay Kay Menon and Siddharth Basu will appear in supporting roles.

The film is based on historian Gyan Prakash's book Mumbai Fables, a story of how the city of Mumbai became a metropolis against the backdrop of love, greed, violence and jazz music.

Bombay Velvet is the story of one ordinary man who goes against all odds and forges his destiny to become a 'Big Shot'.

The film is slated to release on 28th November this year.
