Starring Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt and Siddhant Chaturvedi, Gully Boy (2019) has covered a much longer distance than one would have possibly imagined. After having an impressive theatrical run upon its release in February earlier this year, the movie has now been selected as India’s official entry for the 92nd Oscars.

Filmmaker Zoya Akhtar is ecstatic that her movie is going to the Oscars. In the meantime, she has also started working on her next directorial venture. “Zoya has always been criticized for making elitist movies. She proved everyone wrong when she made Gully Boy. Now, she is writing another script in a similar space and milieu. But it is a gangster drama that she has been planning for some time now,” a source close to the filmmaker informs an entertainment portal.

The source goes on to add that the first idea is ready and has been shared with Ranveer Singh. The actor has verbally agreed to come onboard. “Zoya has offered the gangster flick to her favourite Ranveer Singh already. He has heard the concept and is really keen on doing it as well. He has verbally given his nod and this will be his third film with Zoya after Dil Dhadakne Do (2015) and Gully Boy.”

The team is currently looking at locking the dates. “Ranveer is currently wrapping up Kabir Khan’s 83 and also has YRF’s Jayeshbhai Jordaar lined up. He has to kickstart Karan Johar’s Takht from February next year as well. So, they are currently figuring out dates from which they can go on floors with the gangster saga,” the source says in conclusion.

Well, it is indeed an exciting piece of news that Ranveer Singh and Zoya Akhtar are collaborating again after delivering two hits in the past. An official announcement regarding their third venture is highly awaited.
