Accompanied by his co-stars Anushka Sharma and Karan Johar along with director Anurag Kashyap, Ranbir was a sight to behold as he brought in unsuspecting journalists and made them dance with him last night.
Dropping his shirt at one point during the performance, the 32-year-old actor ensured that everyone was enjoying the night.
The gathering, hosted by music composer Amit Trivedi and lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya, kick-started with a performance by singer Neeti Mohan.
Mohan, who is the voice of Anushka's Jazz singer character Rosie in the film, performed numbers like 'Mohabbat Buri Bimari', 'Naak Pe Gussa', 'Behroopia' and 'Sylvia' in her silken voice.
Anushka later joined her for an emotional, teary rendition of 'Dhadaam Dhadaam'. Neeti started crying while singing the number, saying no song has ever demanded so much from her.
Anushka revealed when Anurag told her to perform the number, she balked at the idea because of the emotional intensity in Mohan's voice.
Trivedi finally took to the stage to perform his very first song for Anurag - 'Ye Duniya' from "Dev D" and was joined by director-producer Vikas Bahl, who showed off his moves.
Johar too couldn't resist going on stage, when 'Auntieji' started playing.
Ranbir and Anushka, who were cheering from the audience, joined in the revelry by dancing to 'Tai Tai Phiss', followed by 'Hungama Ho Gaya' and 'London Thumkata' from "Queen".
Produced by Phantom's Vikramaditya Motwane, Bahl and Fox Star Studios, "Bombay Velvet" hits theatres on May 15.
The entire star cast of the movie is in Goa where journalists from all over the country have been invited to be a part of the promotions.
Johar said he was feeling very Hollywood about the unique promotional event, while Ranbir added they decided to meeteveryone in one place instead of opting for city tours.
Anurag also treated the media with a seven-minute sneak-peek of the movie.
Vijay Singh, CEO of Fox Star Studios, said he was proud to be associated with a film like this. "We need to start making such films because the audience is evolving," he said.
