Mumbai: Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan might replace Ranveer Singh in Zoya Akhtar’s next movie although Ranveer have already teamed up with Zoya in her directorial venture ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ but if rumours are to be believed then both of them wanted to team up once again in the next movie.
But, now we learned that Varun will be stepping into the shoes of the main lead in Zoya’s next venture and the reason being for the change in the cast is Ranveer’s hectic schedule.
We see that Ranveer is presently busy shooting for his upcoming movie ‘Padmavati’ directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and have already given his dates to Yash Raj Films next venture and therefore due to the date clash he could not give his dates to Zoya’s next movie.
Varun who might replace Ranveer, will be playing the role of a rapper in the musical movie of the filmmaker that is based on the life of real life rappers Divine (Vivian Fernandez) and Naezy (Naved Sheikh) from the streets of Mumbai.
The movie is boldly titled Gully Boys the film will also have one more parallel lead and the details of the same are yet to be revealed. It has been learnt that Zoya is writing the script with Reema Kagti and the lyrics for the film will be given by the famous Gulzar.
