I agree with the red. This could be another award-winning role for Ranveer if the role is focused on the human struggle and doesn't become some sort of caricature.

Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt to indulge in a lot of improvisational singing in 'Gully Boy'

SUBHASH K JHA | Wed, 15 Feb 2017-12:10pm , DNA

Alia Bhatt to join Ranveer Singh and sing with him...Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh have been cast in Zoya Akhtar's next directorial venture Gully Boy is known. And the effect they're expected to have is, the same boost a Varun Dhawan-Shraddha Kapoor gave to the ABCD franchise. If Varun-Shraddha could dance, Alia and Ranveer are both known for their singing skills off-screen.

Apart from this being a fresh pairing, they have never worked together, save for one endorsement they work on together, the film will also see them exercising their vocal chords throughout. From what we've learnt, the two will indulge in rapping and a fair bit of singing in Gully Boys.

"Alia has sung for films before. Ranveer, hasn't, but what isn't known, is that he's a keen rapper. This film requires both of them to play street singers. There will be a lot of improvisational singing by both of them," shares a source about what to expect from the two actors.

Talk about some exciting news! As if the
news of Ranveer Singh playing a rapper in
Zoya Akhtar"s Gully Boy wasn't enough
dope, now our source EXCLUSIVELY reveals
to us how Mr Singh might also pen down a
rap or two for the film. Yes! Like if you
notice, ever since the news of Ranveer being
roped in to play a rapper in Gully Boy has hit
the web, the actor has been majorly
investing himself into a lot of rapping - be it
through stage shows, Instagram videos, or
random promotional events. In fact, more
recently, Ranveer had even rapped for a
brand with a kickass video titled - "Don't
hold back". Remember the one that released
earlier last month? Oh! The lyrics were so
damn crazaayyy! Also read: Ranveer Singh
to play a street rapper in Zoya Akhtar's
Ranveer himself penned down the lyrics for
this first official rap Don't hold back' which
read, "Live everyday like it's my aakhri or
pehla, Na hoon fukra, na hoon vella, Tere
nehle pe hoon dehla, Beta main hoon tera
guru, aur tu hai mera chela, That Ranveer
guy's so crazy! Haan, main hoon saala
Hatela! I'm a freak in this carnival. Instincts
of an animal, Ruthless like a cannibal, Foolish
and hungry, All and sundry, Be warned, Ab
batao King kaun? It's on, I'm King Kong!"
Here watch the video below: (Credits: Jack
& Jones)

Dunno about you but we're certainly thrilled
to watch Ranveer ace the rapper instinct in
him through Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy. The
film is based on Naezy aka Naved Shaikh,
who is a gully rapper from a Kurla slum.
Speaking of which, Naezy had even
mentioned in an interview saying, "I like the
guy(Ranveer). We worked together for a
song in Hey Bro (2015). He is a versatile
actor and I have no doubts that he can
effortlessly play an emperor in Padmavati
and a rapper in this film."
Gully Boy even brings together Ranveer and
Alia Bhatt for the first time on the big
screen. So be rest assured this Zoya
directorial is going to roll out a lot of
surprises as and when it inches closer to the
release day. How excited are you to watch
Ranveer as THE rapper, rapping his own
rap? Can't keep calm, right? Same here guys!
Let's await the next big news, until then,
keep watching this space for more updates
on this hot story.

Did you know? Ranveer Singh gave a nod for 'Gully Boy' while shooting for 'Befikre' in Paris!

Here's why Ranveer owns this cinematic space...

Zoya Akhtar's forthcoming film Gully Boy is a much anticipated project for more reasons than one.

First, Zoya has chosen a home grown local subject for the very first time, one rooted in Mumbai's dirt and grit and unique legacy of turning lives around. Second, it is based in ground research of home grown rapper stories like Naezy and Divine, who have left behind the struggle of slum dwelling riding on their power packed, thumping street poetry. But the biggest reason for watching out for this project is Ranveer Singh, the film's leading man. The story of Ranveer taking on the challenge of playing Gully Boy has an interesting background to it.

Even as Zoya began researching and writing the film, she had only Ranveer in mind for the role. A source close to the project said, "Zoya was quite keen to have Ranveer as the only man to play this role. The character of Gully Boy is edgy, drawn from portions of real life and quite uncommon for today's typical city based hero. Zoya was so excited about Ranveer playing this part that she met him in Paris while he was shooting for Befikre, to give him a narration. Ranveer immediately agreed to do this role. For him, it's an opportunity to display his versatility, reiterating his range as performer. It also brought him a chance to display his rapping skills."

While singing for their films is becoming quite the norm for actors today, rapping is unique. it's not up everyone's alley, as rapping requires unlimited energy ,a sense of rhythm and an ability to connect to street poetry, bringing alive the sound of the street. It is his commitment to pull of rapping with style and swag, that ensured that he got signed up for a somewhat higher pay cheque for this part of Gully Boy.

Another source adds, "Ranveer has been meeting up with Naezy and has also caught up with Divine to crack their rapping styles. Both love the fact that he will be playing this crucial role. He is trying to understand their body language and what drives their music. Knowing Ranveer, he will prepare extensively for this part and become the character like only he can."

To play a quintessential Mumbai boy from slums, who makes his dreams come true, Ranveer is willing to go the extra mile in more ways than one. Gully Boy therefore is well worth watching out for, with this Singh and his swag in charge!
