Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer musical drama ‘Gully Boy‘ is unstoppable at the box-office. As the movie is doing great at the box office, here comes another interesting news for the movie lovers.
Yes, if reports are to be believed, the film will have a sequel. Director, Zoya Akhtar confirms the news to the Deccan Chronicle.
Gully Boy to have a sequel
She said, “My co-writer Reema Kagti and I do feel there’s so much more to be said on the entire hip-hop culture in our country. And another film exploring the theme is being scripted and planned.”
Akhtar also confirmed that her brother Farhan Akhtar will not be a part of the sequel’s cast as well. She said, “He just didn’t fit into Gully Boy. And we’re both sorry about it. Also, his image from the Rock On series is affiliated to an entirely different genre of music. It would have been a bit of a culture shock for the audience to suddenly see him swerve from stadium-rock to hip-hop.”
Gully Boy is reportedly based on the lives of rapper Vivian Fernandes aka Divine and Naved Shaikh aka Naezy known for their song “Mere Gully Mein” in Mumbai.
The film also starred Kalki Koechlin, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Vijay Verma in pivotal parts.
