Ranveer Singh likely to star in Zoya’s film on street rappers

Monday, September 19, 2016

Actor Ranveer Singh's name is almost confirmed for filmmaker Zoya Akhtar's next, claims city-based rapper Naezy, from whose life the film is inspired.

The forthcoming project, rumoured to be titled 'Gully Boy', is about the lives of street rappers from Mumbai's chawls and ghettos, including artistes Naezy and Divine.

There have been reports that Ranveer will be seen in the role of a rapper. When asked if the 31-year-old actor is doing the film, Naezy told, “He is doing the film, it is almost confirmed. But still there are few things which are yet to be finalised, writing is underway.”

The 'Asal Hustle' rapper, whose real name is Naved Sheikh, said Ranveer will be the perfect fit to play the part as he understands and loves hip-hop music. “Ranveer also listens to hip-hop. He knows what real hip-hop is. We spoke to him and he is also very excited regarding this. He will enjoy this (role) too. I had done a Bollywood track called 'Birju' on which he lip synced and was in my get up. He was rapping like me. He listens to all our music. He is a very versatile actor. He can be a Bajirao and a rapper too,” he said.

Naezy, who resides in Kurla, said as part of the film's research, the 'Dil Dhadakne Do' helmer visited their locality and tried to understand the 'life and stories' of underground rappers.

Zoya also saw live performance of the artists to get a better insight, and Naezy says the rappers on their part gave her inputs. “She is a very intelligent director. She has thought of making something on this, so it's good. The biggest misconception regarding hip-hop will be removed and it will also help the underground scene to reach mainstream,” he said.
