It's confirmed. Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt will play the leads in a movie about Mumbai's underground rapping scene.
According to a PTI report, the movie is "about the lives of street rappers from Mumbai's chawls and ghettos", and focuses on the life and career of desi hip-hop artist Naved Sheikh a.k.a. Naezy.
Back in 2016, Zoya spoke to FirstPost about Gully Boy:
“Yes, my next film is inspired by real life street rappers. I watched these kids on the Net and they just blew my mind. I didn’t know that this kind of music was coming out of the lanes and by-lanes of Mumbai. People are so consumed with listening to just film music that nobody pays attention to some serious talent on the streets. That is how it all started.”
