Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy has commenced shoot with a new year opening doors for hip hop in India like never before. Bollywood’s leading stars Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt have started shooting for the much anticipated movie. A lot of buzz has been afloat about this film, but only the hip hop community knows its importance.
As we let our readers know earlier, the Gully Boy team conducted workshops with many rappers in Mumbai recently. Ranveer has also been meeting up with rappers from the Bay. Photos of Ranveer with Kaaam Bhaari, MC Altaf and Emiway surfaced online, where they’re seen putting their pen games to work. We wonder if Ranveer Singh is brainstorming to write his own bars? That would be cool!
It has been abundantly made clear that Gully Boy is hugely inspired by rappers Divine and Naezy’s come up story. Which in its own way is an ode to the hip hop revolution in India, where the leading filmmakers and actors of the industry are feeling the vibe.
