We already know that Ranveer Singh would be playing a rapper in Zoya Akhtar’s musical “Gully Boy”. There are lots of speculations about the leading lady for the film.

Initially we heard that Saif Ali Khan‘s daughter Sara Ali Khan will make her dream Bollywood debut opposite Ranveer Singh from “Gully Boy”.

But now it’s look like not Sara but “Dear Zindagi” star Alia bhatt is the choice of makers for the film.

We all loved Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt’s chemistry in a series of television commercials for an online travel portal. According to a daily, the funky and peppy stars will be working together in a full fledged movie.The plot of the movie is about the lives of street rappers and Ranveer will be playing a rapper himself.

Although the name of the second male lead is still not out yet, buzz states that perhaps it’s Farhan Akhtar, who’ll be the second rapper in the movie. A source close to the film revealed to a daily, “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.”

Meanwhile, Alia will next be seen with Varun in “Badrinath Ki Dulhania”. Directed by Shashank Khaitan, the movie is slated to release on March 10, 2017.

Ranveer is currently shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s much-talked about film “Padmavati” which also stars Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor as the leads. The movie is slated to release on November 17, 2017.
