Actor Vijay Varma, who is joining the team of GULLY BOYS, is excited about working with filmmaker Zoya Akhtar and actor Ranveer Singh.
"Working with Zoya Akhtar is like a dream come true. She is one of the finest directors we have in the country and I am eagerly looking forward to shoot this one. Also sharing screen space with the mighty Ranveer Singh is going to be fun," Vijay said in a statement.
Last seen on-screen in MONSOON SHOOTOUT, Vijay will play a rapper in GULLY BOYS, a story of four friends who are local rappers in the midst of overcrowded and bustling Mumbai. Vijay is one of the rappers who will be sharing screen space with Ranveer, Alia Bhatt and Kalki Koechlin.
Vijay has mostly been associated with indie genre films so far and, with GULLY BOYS, he is all set to explore a full-blown commercial movie for the first time in Bollywood. He will begin shooting for the film by next month.
