Kalki to Rap with Ranveer in Gully Boy
Band Baaja Baaraat marked the entry of a versatile actor in 2010 who took no time to secure a place in the Hindi film industry and also in the hearts of Hindustanis. Besides acting, Ranveer Singh also has a rapper inside him that often shows up in reality shows and award functions. And now the actor will be seen displaying his rapping skills in an upcoming movie, Gully Boy, where the talented Kalki Koechlin will be joining him.
The Inspiration behind Gully Boy
The directorial venture of Zoya Akhtar, Gully Boy attempts to replicate the life of street rappers of Dharavi, Vivian Fernandes aka Divine and Naezy. The duo gained popularity for their song ‘Mere Gully Main’ and unintentionally provided fodder for the movie.
Kalki to rap too
Kalki has been listening to a lot of ‘desi’ rap recently for her role in Gully Boy.
The actress told PTI, “We did not prepare much except that we listened to a lot of rap. I started listening to Divine, Naezy, and tried to understand where this voice was coming from. My character has studied music in Berkeley and she comes back and is producing a video, she also writes music as well.”
We must say, the Dev D fame is preparing well for her role and is excited to be rapping alongside Ranveer.
Gully Boy reunites Zoya and Kalki
Kalki has worked with Zoya in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and admires the latter for her sense of humour and dedication. She adds that Zoya is fun to be around and quite playful on the sets but at the same, she is very specific as a director and exactly knows what she wants.
The movie is slated to release on February 14 next year and all we can do is wait, or rap, or rap while waiting.
