Well it looks like Zoya Akhtar is on cloud 9 with Gully Boy making its way into the Oscars nomination list this year; and her short film for Netflix Originals, Lust Stories getting nominated for the International Emmy Awards. Now, as per latest reports we hear that the director has already started working for her next and has approached her Gully Boy actor Ranveer Singh for the same project, as she want to rope him in for the film.
A source close to Zoya has revealed, that the director has always been criticised for making elitist movies. She proved everyone wrong when she made Gully Boy. Now, she’s writing another script in a similar space and milieu. But it’s a gangster drama that she has been planning for sometime now and Zoya has offered the gangster flick to her favourite Ranveer Singh already. The source further added, that Ranveer has heard the concept and is really keen on doing it as well. The actor has also verbally given his nod for the same to collaborate for the third film with Zoya after his previous two flicks with her.
While asking about when the film can be expected to go on floors, the source said, that Ranveer is currently wrapping up Kabir Khan’s 83 and also has YRF’s Jayeshbhai Jordaar in his pipeline. Post which, he will be filming for Karan Johar’s Takht from February next year as well. Thus the team is currently figuring out dates from which they can go on floors with the gangster saga.
Meanwhile Ranveer Singh will next be seen sharing screen space with his wife, Deepika Padukone in Kabir Singh’s ’83’, which is slated to release on 10th April 2020.
