Ranveer Singh: GULLY BOY is very dear to me
Ranveer Singh is on career high as his latest release PADMAAVAT entered the 200 crore club and his role as the antagonist Alauddin Khilji has been widely appreciated and you just can’t take your eyes off Khilji.
As Ranveer Singh has now began shooting for his next GULLY BOY, we asked him after the emotionally draining journey of playing Alauddin Khilji how difficult was it for him to start rolling for GULLY BOY and he replied, “If you are excited about your work, it's not difficult at all. The day I finished shooting PADMAAVAT, immediately my first thought was like GULLY BOY because that's a film which is very dear to me. I strongly feel for these people on which the characters are based on. They are marginalized people from the lowest strata of the society who have a very tough existence. It's a very difficult life and they find their expression as artists. They have started a music scene that's so unique. It's in Bambaiyya language which is the most incredible thing.
the actor further added, "You have to read sometimes what these kids are writing. These kids in their 19 and early 20s write social commentary about how messed up our system is and they make such strong observations and comments on the state of affairs and what I believe will affect social change because there are thousands of kids now who are listening to their music and learning to understanding that. So, I strongly feel for them and I want to do what I can do to give a platform to these amazing musical talents. GULLY BOY is a story which I really want to tell along with Zoya. You will be quite amazed to hear the music of this film.”
Kudos to Ranveer Singh! We simply can’t wait for him to enthrall us in GULLY BOY. Watch this space for more.
