Surrounded by the Padmavati controversies, Ranveer Singh finds his escape in prepping for his new film, Gully Boy. The actor has finally started prepping for his next film with director Zoya Akhtar and it looks like Ranveer Singh is surely enjoying his time on the sets. While Ranveer Singh will reunite with his Dil Dhadakne Do director, he will be sharing careen space with the talented Alia Bhatt for the first time.

Yash Raj Films recently posted a video on Twitter in which Ranveer Singh can be seen in his gully rapper avatar having a one-on-one with Mumbai rapper Vivian Fernandes, commonly known by his stage name ‘Divine’. While we are happy to see Ranveer prepping up for the role with all his zeal, it would have been even better to hear him rap in the video. Sadly, the story posted by Ranveer has no audio. We are assuming the reason is to keep secrecy until the official launch of the song.
Prior to beginning Gully Boy, Akhtar worked on a 10 episode web series for Amazon Prime starring Shwetha Tripathi, called Made in Heaven. She also finished her short in Bombay Talkies 2.0 featuring Bhumi Pednekar in the lead. Zoya’s next, Gully Boy is based on Naezy aka Naved Shaikh, who is a gully rapper from a Kurla slum. Ranveer and Alia will start shooting for Gully Boy from January 2018.
