Gully Boy is a movie inspired by the rappers from the slums of Dharavi in Mumbai. This will be the first time Alia and Ranveer will be paired in leads. Among others, the Gully Boy cast has Kalki Koechlin, Siddhant Chaturvedi, and Vijay Varma in various roles.

Divine aka Vivian Fernandes had earlier told a leading daily that “If you’re writing a film about hip-hop, the most important thing is you should be a good writer. Zoya had come for one of our shows; that’s how she discovered us. Then she visited the place where we lived and I was more than happy to chat with her and Reema (Reema Kagti, partner in scriptwriting) and tell them everything about the [hip-hop] scene. I don’t know the story, but we’re a part of the film and its music. We will be going on the sets, as the shooting has started. Hopefully, Gully Boy mein bhi aayega kuchh hamara!”
