The film ‘Gully Boy’ has brought India’s hip-hop culture into the limelight. This film inspired many to go after their dreams, no matter what circumstances they are into. Acting, direction, songs and story, everything about Gully Boy is very marvellous. There is good news for the fans of this movie. The film’s director Zoya Akhtar has confirmed the sequel of this story is in the progress.
Gully Boy starred Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles. It was released in India on 14th February and did very good business at box office. The movie Gully Boy had its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival. The film surely won hearts and it is being predicted that the movie will bag all the awards this year.
When asked about this Gully Boy and hip-hop culture in India, Zoya 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.” She did not mention anything about the cast of this upcoming movie, but she was clear that it will not feature her brother, Farhan Akhtar. He was a producer for Gully Boy. She didn’t feature him as an actor because according to her he didn’t fit into Gully Boy character. She said that both of them felt sorry for this fact. It is being rumoured that Ishaan Khattar will play the lead role in this Gully Boy sequel, but no such news is from directors or producers.
Its been 10 years that Zoya is in direction field. She started her career with the movie Luck by Chance and now she is very well recognised. Her some of the brilliant movies are Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Talaash, and her recent release Gully Boy. There were some news about the sequel of Zindagi na Milegi Dobara, to which, Zoya replied, ““Honestly, people want a second movie of ZNMD, but I think the best franchise would either be Luck By Chance or Dil Dhadakne Do. There are so many characters and so many streams and they are ongoing stories. So I think they would make better franchises.”
