After creating much buzz among the masses, Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy starring Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh has finally gone on floors today. The entire team is super-excited for commencing the shoot and shared their joy with their fans through a social media post.

Alia's level of thrill was evident from her happy post which read, "And finally its Day 1 of #GullyBoy !!! Such a special film for me for various reasons!!!! Wish me luck!!!! Your support and love means the world to me. Wohooo let's do this."

Her co-star Ranveer Singh reposted the clapboard of Gully Boy initially shared by the director Zoya Akhtar. The 'Padmaavat' actor has earlier worked with Alia for various commercials and events but this film based on the lives of street rappers will mark their first movie together.

The film co-produced by Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akshar will also feature Kalki Koechlin in a pivotal role. Ranveer, who has showcased his rapping skills earlier on various occasions, will be given an opportunity to display his skills as he will play a rapper in the film.

Zoya's film will explore the lives of street rappers from Mumbai chawls including the two rappers Vivian Fernandes aka Divine and Naved Shaikh aka Naezy. The actors have been prepping for their respective roles for a while and Ranveer has reportedly also recorded some songs with help from some well-known artists.

While Gully Boy's release date is yet to be finalised, Ranveer Singh is awaiting the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Padmaavat and Alia Bhatt has already started shooting for Ayan Mukherjee's Brahmastra and Meghna Gulzar's Raazi.
