Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer Gully Boy is one of the best critically acclaimed films of the year and with Zoya Akhtar’s direction, it just got better. Gully Boy was based around the lives of underground rappers, Divine and Naezy and the youth related to it more than any other feature film in a very long time. Now, the film is not only being appreciated in India, but it is the ticket for India’s official entry at the 92nd Academy Awards!
The Zoya Akhtar directorial has been nominated for the Best International Feature Film Award which was first titled as the Best Foreign Language Film category. While a lot of movies have been nominated earlier, only three of them made it to the final round, including Mother India, Salaam Bombay, and Lagaan. While this news is elating, we’re still waiting to get a reaction from Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, and Zoya Akhtar.
This indeed is a huge step for the Indian cinema. Congratulations are certainly in order for team Gully Boy!
