So, we already know that he is the right choice for Zoya Akhtar’s film. We are also eager to know if Alia would croon along with him since she has also proved her singing skills over the years. Ranveer was rumoured to be prepping up for Gully Boy role since more than a year. However, due to the busy schedule, he had to shift the shoot and it is now that he has finally worn the cap of being a rapper.

A source close to the project said, “Zoya was quite keen to have Ranveer as the only man to play this role. The character of Gully Boy is edgy, drawn from portions of real life and quite uncommon for today’s typical city based hero. Zoya was so excited about Ranveer playing this part that she met him in Paris while he was shooting for Befikre, to give him a narration. Ranveer immediately agreed to do this role. For him, it’s an opportunity to display his versatility, reiterating his range as a performer. It also brought him a chance to display his rapping skills.”
