After essaying the role of Allaudin Khilji in Padmaavat, Ranveer Singh is set to star as a rapper in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy. On being asked by a leading Indian entertainment portal about his transformation, Ranveer Said, “I like to switch things up, I like to do different things. Coming off from Mr Bhansali film to Zoya film then I have Rohit Shetty film is interesting. For me, it’s very important that I keep doing different things and the audience shouldn’t know what to expect. It should come with double excitement attached to what will come next. I am very keen on not doing the same thing, to not repeat the trick. I am very happy that wonderful opportunities come my way. I think it’s very rich phase for me creatively. Coming off from the character like Alauddin Khilji to Gully Boy and from there to Simmba is like venturing into two opposite spectrums. To cover that, it makes me fulfilled as an artist. I am very excited about my upcoming slate.”

Ranveer Singh is a rap enthusiast and Gully Boy will feature him as a rapper. Talking about Gully Boy, Ranveer Said, “It is incredible. It is a story of these boys who come from tough existence. They are a franchise to a lot of people who have got a tough life. They found an expression in art and in music. They have broken through as recording artists. It’s something I feel for, very strongly and the film is perhaps closest to my heart after Band Baaja Baraat because it is my first film but Gully Boy, is closest to my heart because I am keen to be champion of this cause of trying to grow and develop this most wonderful music scenes which are flourishing and coming out of the streets of Mumbai.”

Last year, Ranveer Singh had no releases as he was preparing hard for Padmaavat. This year witnessed the release of Padmaavat. Moreover, he has an interesting line up of his movies. Other than Gully Boy, he will also be seen in Rohit Shetty’s Simmba. Talking about the release of his movies this year, Ranveer said, “I am not sure what the producers have planned. Like I did throughout my career and also in the case of Padmaavat, I have focused on my performance as in the capacity of an actor. I don’t interfere too much in the prerogative of the producers.”
