Ranveer Singh is all set to reunite with his 'Dil Dhadakne Do' director Zoya Akhtar for a film which has been tentatively titled 'Gully Boy'. The movie will be scripted by Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti.
Reportedly Ranveer will play an underdog who rises from the slums of Mumbai to become a rapper with a heart and a voice that addresses Dalit oppression, street life, economic inequality and homosexuality. He even takes on corrupt politicians.
A source close to the source revealed to a leading tabloid, "The film is inspired by real life rappers like Divine and Naezy whose work has ranged from speaking about petty crimes in their respective Mumbai neighbourhoods of Kurla and Andheri to sharing stories about finding a voice and becoming activists. It is an extremely ambitious project and will roll next year."
The source further adds, "The film will feature another actor, who will be seen in a parallel lead alongside Ranveer. Casting for the role is yet to be finalized."
Currently the actor is in Paris shooting for Aditya Chopra's 'Befikre' with Vaani Kapoor. Upon his return he is expected to roll with another film after which he will shift gears and rap in Urdu, Hindi and Marathi for Zoya's hard-hitting next.
