Gully Boy is Zoya Akhtar's next directorial after the family comedy-drama Dil Dhadakne Do. The filmmaker will be collaborating with Ranveer Singh yet again and the actor will be paired opposite Alia Bhatt for the first time.
For the uninitiated, Gully Boy is inspired by the lives of Mumbai street rappers Divine and Naezy and Ranveer will be seen as a rapper, himself.
Now, in recent developments, joining the cast will be the versatile actress Kalki Koechlin, according to a leading tabloid. The actress has worked with Zoya before in the coming-of-age travel movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. The star-studded cast included Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar, Katrina Kaif and Abhay Deol opposite whom Kalki was paired.
The tabloid further informed that Kalki will be playing a rapper in the movie just like Ranveer.
