Big Broadway-styled musicals seem to be the flavour of the season in Bollywood. After Jagga Jasoos, a full-fledged musical with no spoken lines, we will now see another broad-spectrum musical in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boyz, a film about street rappers.
It is no coincidence that Zoya has chosen Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt as the lead actors in Gully Boyz.
“The lead couple is required to do extensive singing,” reveals a source. “Zoya was very sure that she wanted Ranveer and Alia because they both can sing. She also needed her leading man to be a rapper, and we all know that Ranveer can rap at the snap of a finger.”
Ranveer would be doing his self-composed rapping. Says the source, “Zoya will give Ranveer a free hand. Gully Boyz will have an informal, almost casual but highly improvisational music score by many different musicians including Ranveer. He will be composing a lot of his lines.”
Let’s see what tunes Alia and Ranveer chart out.
