Recently there were reports of Zoya Akhtar roping in 'Dil Dhadakne Do' boy Ranveer Singh for her next which is rumoured to be titled 'Gully Boy' and is said to be inspired by the life of city-based rapper Naezy and other rappers from Mumbai’s chawls and ghettos.
While the film-maker had earlier refused to divulge any details about the film, now rapper Naezy whose real name is Naved Sheikh gave a major detail about the film.
The young lad was quoted saying to PTI, "He (Ranveer Singh) is doing the film, it is almost confirmed. But still there are few things which are yet to be finalised, writing is underway. Ranveer also listens to hip-hop. He knows what real hip-hop is. We spoke to him and he is also very excited regarding this. He will enjoy this (role) too. I had done a Bollywood track called ‘Birju’ on which he lip synced and was in my get up. He was rapping like me."
He further added, "He listens to all our music. He is a very versatile actor. He can be a Bajirao and a rapper too."
Whoa, we just can't wait to see Ranveer's new avatar!
