Since the time the trailer of Zoya Akhtar‘s Gully Boy has been dropped, everyone is going gaga over it. People are loving Ranveer’s avatar who plays rapper Divine in the movie. On the other hand, Alia Bhatt caught everyone’s attention with her small yet significant appearance in the trailer. The celebrities are hailing the movie, along with the masses. However, if certain reports are to be believed, Ranbir Kapoor was also supposed to star in the film. Shocked?! Even we are. Reportedly two and a half years ago, when Zoya was finalising her cast for the musical drama, Mr Kapoor showed his keen interest in the project, without knowing that the director had already casted Singh for the lead character.
Thinking what happened next? Well, apparently to Kapoor’s surprise, Zoya offered him a secondary character who is a supporting one to Singh’s character in the plot. Kapoor immediately declined to play the character. Clearly, Zoya was in no mood to replace Singh.
