A while ago director Zoya Akhtar had surfaced the idea of a project that she named ‘Gully Boy’.

The main leads of the entertainer are finally confirmed. Sources have suggested that actor Ranveer Singh will be seen opposite the young and bubbly actress, Alia Bhatt.

The pair has been seen together in several commercials. They make a cute couple that is evident from the Makemytrip commercials. Zoya has sought out to cast this pair in her forthcoming film. As per grapevine, the Bajirao Mastani actor will be seen as an underdog from the streets of Mumbai who rises to the top as a city rapper.

The film will be bankrolled by Excel Entertainment and Zoya’s recently launched banner Tiger Baby. Akhtar had spoken about her upcoming film in an interview with Firstpost earlier, "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."

The film is likely to hit the floors by November 2017. On one hand, where Alia is awaiting the release of ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ on March 10, Ranveer is busy filming for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’, which will also feature Shahid Kapoor and Deepika Padukone.
