Zoya Akhtar's critically-acclaimed film 'Gully Boy' had more than one dialogue that became a rage among the audience. One of them being Alia Bhatt's 'Mere boyfriend se gulu gulu karegi toh dhoptungi na usko'. A video released on social media, veteran actress Rekha is seen acing Alia Bhatt's dialogue like a pro at the IIFA awards 2019. The video begins with Alia Bhatt first saying it herself, followed by Rekha who does it in her own 'rapchik' style! Netizens called her a 'legeng' in the comments after watching this video.
Zoya Akhtar's "Gully Boy", featuring Ranveer Singh as an aspiring rapper, has been selected as India's official entry in the International Feature Film category at the Oscars, the Film Federation of India (FFI) announced. The movie, which released commercially across the country on February 14, also features Alia Bhatt, Vijay Raaz, Kalki Koechlin, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Vijay Varma and Amruta Subhash.
"Gully Boy", produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, features Ranveer as an up-and-coming rapper who sets out to achieve his dream by rhyming about his life on the Mumbai streets. "India's official entry for Oscars this year is 'Gully Boy'. There were 27 films in the running this year but it was an unanimous decision to select 'Gully Boy'," FFI secretary general Supran Sen told PTI.
Celebrated actor-filmmaker Aparna Sen was the head of the jury for this year's selection committee. "The energy of the film was infectious. It will speak to the audience," Aparna said on "Gully Boy" being the final pick of the jury. No Indian film has ever won an Oscar. The last film from India that made it to the final five in the Best Foreign Film category list was Ashutosh Gowariker's "Lagaan" in 2001.
