We all know, Ranveer Singh will soon be seen in Zoya Akhtar’s much talked about film – Gully Boy. The story is about an underdog who rises from slums and goes on to become a big rapper. It’s an interesting take on the typical rag to riches story.
Reports state, the story is based on the life of real life rapper artists – Divine and Naezy, but Zoya Akhtar has mentioned, while the two artists are being consulted for this film, the story per say is not inspired by anyone. The movie will also star Alia Bhatt.
While both actors have done ads together, this is their first feature film. The good news is, Ranveer has already begun his prep – he has been meeting up with Divine and Naezy to understand their rapping styles and get a hang of it. It requires a lot of energy, sense of rhythm and the knack for understanding street poetry., revealed a source as per reports in Mumbai Mirror.
The source further revealed,” Both love the fact that he will be playing this crucial role while he is trying to understand their body language and what drives their music. He wants to prep up extensively for the part so that he becomes the character by the time, the film roll sin November.”
Did you know, Zoya had only Ranveer in mind while scripting tis film and that she flew down to Paris to specially narrate it to him?
The source had further revealed, that because it was unlike today’s typical city hero centric films, and that it was drawn from real life, Ranveer hopped on board immediately. The last time, these two had worked together was for the family drama – Dil Dhadakne Do.
We are so excited about this film – because firstly, the story is unconventional, it’s being helmed by a talented director – Zoya Akhtar and it stars Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt. Do we need anymore reasons?
