Ranveer Singh is gradually becoming the next megastar of Bollywood by delivering blockbusters one after another. Last year, he was the only B-town star who managed to score a big sum of INR 500 crores at the box office. Both of his films: Padmavat and Simbaa tasted huge success at the ticket window. He also married the love of his life – Deepika Padukone , eventually making 2018 the ‘Ranveer Singh Year’.
Now, the man is coming back to the silver screens with Zoya Akhtar’s much anticipated film ‘Gully Boy’. The trailer of the film was loved and lauded by one and all; the film traces the journey of an underground rapper who is trying to make it big in the hip hop scene of India. He is paired opposite Alia Bhatt in the film and the fans cannot wait for the film.
Recently he talked about collaborating with Zoya for the second time, he said: “Zoya and I have collaborated before, so there was a certain familiarity there. But while working on Dil Dhadakne Do, because it was an ensemble film, it was almost an unsaid thing between me and Zoya that we would work together again, because there was so much left to explore. We wanted to do something where there’d be lots more for us to do together. We bounced various ideas and all of them were amazing. But one day she called me over and showed me the video of Meri Gully Mein and said, “This is the world that I want to set my film”. To me, it was amazing, because I love so many of these things – the hip-hop scene, the ‘bambaiyya’ language. It is all part of my identity.”
