Zoya and Ranveer have worked together in the 2015 summer release, highly appreciated Dil Dhadakne Do.
Sara Ali Khan (daughter of Amrita Singh) might make her debut opposite Ranveer in Zoya's Gully Boy.
Previously, she has been in talk for sign opposite Tiger Shroff in ‘Student of the Year,’ as well the official ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ remake opposite Shahid Kapoor’s younger brother Ishan Khattar. But, mother Amrita Singh had squashed all rumours, earlier.
Zoya Akhtar has been working on her coming-of-age flick, ‘Gully Boy,’ set Ranveer Singh as the lead actor, might have found her leading lady in Sara, reportedly.
“Both the producers, Farhan (Akhtar) and Ritesh (Sidhwani), along with Zoya, have been in talks with Sara for a while now and they are almost in the final stages of discussion. Gully Boys could well be her launching pad,” a source says.
The film, which is majorly inspired by the lives of Mumbai rappers Divine and Naezy, had writers Reema Kagti and Zoya hang out with the two for the longest time.
The film has also been inspired from the politically incorrect rapping careers of the likes of Muck Fodi (Ashwini Mishra), Kolkata-based Vik Sen aka Feyago, Bangalore-based Brodha V aka Vighnesh Shivanand, BK from Tripura.
