I was born to do Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Gully Boy’: Ranveer Singh
After delivering one of his career’s biggest hits, ‘Simmba’ recently, Ranveer Singh is all set to rock again in Zoya Akhtar’s directorial ‘Gully Boy’. The trailer of ‘Gully Boy’ has been a topic of discussion since it was uploaded on YouTube, it has garnered 15 Million views in only 18 hours. The film is all set to release on February 14, 2019.
There are reports doing rounds on social media that Zoya Akhtar first offered ‘Gully Boy’ to Ranbir Kapoor two years back while finalising the cast. However, Ranbir refused to do as he was not interested in playing the supporting role. On ‘Gully Boy’ trailer launch Ranveer Singh said that he was born to do Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Gully Boy‘ as only he could have done justice to the character of a rapper.
“This is my film and I think only I could have done it. It is the coming together of so many things like rap, hip-hop music, which I have loved since I was a kid, Mumbai the city. Zoya Akhtar is my friend, confidante. Ritesh Sidhwani is like my father. I admire Farhan Akhtar and want him to direct me some day. We are lucky Alia Bhatt is part of our film,” Ranveer told reporters at the trailer launch.
“It was the most fulfilling experience. To be with this raw talent.. I was very excited,” he added. Last year, while promoting his film ‘Sanju’ Ranbir Kapoor had said that he would love to act with Ranveer Singh in a film. They should work in a film whose script they both like, he added.
The film ‘Gully Boy’ also features Alia Bhatt and Kalki Koechlin.
