Zoya’s next movie based on the lives of street rappers on Mumbai
Popular director Zoya Akhtar is soon travelling to get to a movie based on the lives of street rappers on Mumbai.
The film has tentatively been titled ‘Gully Boy’. The director is a huge fan of hip hop music and was very intrigued by these artists from the ghettos.
Zoya has completed writing the script and the film will go on floors soon, but she hasn’t finalized the cast for her film yet.
She found some of them extremely talented. Without a lot of resources and exposure, these artists have created a space for themselves. She instantly took to researching on the subject and has been hanging out with internet sensations like Rapper Divine and Rapper Naezy, who have a fan following of their own. All this and more research; both primary and secondary helped the director in the scripting process.
