From the Mumbai streets to the Big Screen

One of the youngest film director and screenwriter Zoya Akhtar, is back with another script, filled with life. After her last two successful projects, she has just completed writing the script of her next project.

And like all her other movies, this movie will also be different, or what should be said, depicting a different aspect of life. Only 4 movies old director, Zoya has made a firm place for herself in the industry. After ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ and ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’, Zoya is coming back with a tentatively titled movie ‘Gully Boy’.

 

Zoya Akhtar's next is tentatively named Gully Boy

 

Interestingly the movie is based on the life, style and struggle of Mumbai Street rappers. Zoya is a big fan of hip-hop music herself. And lately she was basically intrigued by the street rappers of Mumbai who have succeeded solely riding on their talent. Coming from not so affluent families, with only limited resources, training and everything, they have made it big and have even got a fan following.

So Zoya began with her research work on the subject wherein she was found visiting the Chawl areas of Mumbai to get a look of the real ‘amchi Mumbai’ rappers. She had even visited the famous Rapper Divine and Rapper Naezy. This research was necessary to do right justice to the script.

So after all her homework done, she has completed writing the script and will now move on to the next step. Zoya is also famous for choosing only big actors in her movies. So let’s see who will be the lucky ones this time??

And seems her star brother is her lucky charm and apparently he has already done a movie ‘Rock on’ which is close to the subject. So we can hope to see him again in her movie.

  • 2017 might have been a bad year for Bollywood, considering the bad movies, and the scarce Box Office collections that the movies made. Also, the controversies surrounding the movies this year, did them more harm than good. But, there are still a few movies from 2017, that we would watch again someday.
  • We have all heard struggle stories of our favourite celebrities, some have been waiters, and some might have been junior artists. But, too many have been backup dancers. From a field that has potentially more than a million people in it, these stars shone so brightly, that they became the cream of Bollywood. These stars started their journey with dancing behind superstars and are now working with them.
  • Bollywood is filled with people, who excel at acting. But other than acting and the storyline, there is another thing that makes our films blockbusters. Dancing! Bollywood movies are filled with dancers. Some dance like they have two left feet, but some, dance like there is no tomorrow. These are the dancers, we are paying a tribute to today.
  • Madame Tussauds is a gem in the age of modern museums, and the capital has become the lucky holder of this gem. Delhiites have become a part of the lucky few, who can now visit these lifelike celebrity wax statues. But, our favourite part is the amazing resemblance, and in some cases the disparity, of these wax figurines.
  • You fall in love and vow to spend the rest of your life with each other. Such is the beauty of a marriage. The end, however, is not always as beautiful. Blame it on fame, gorgeous looks or the fact that cupid's arrows strike again and again in the glamour world, but Bollywood couples have to face the ugly truth of infidelity, divorces, and break-ups ever so often.
  • In Bollywood, there was a time, when supporting actors did not receive the appreciation they do now. They were looked at as mere pawns to make the lead look good. But times have changed, and talented artists have taken these so called side roles, and evolved them into the backbone of the films. They are now taking the limelight, and sometimes even overshadow the leads.
