Meanwhile, the chirpy actress has signed Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy which has her sharing screen space with Ranveer Singh for the first time. The film will be co-produced by Excel Entertainment and Zoya's banner Tiger Baby. The shooting is most likely to kickstart in November.
Recently, Alia spoke with a leading tabloid about working with Zoya in the movie. She was quoted saying to Mumbai Mirror, "It's a new space for me and I'd wanted to work with Zoya Akhtar ever since I saw Luck By Chance."
She also spoke fondly of her new co-star Ranveer and added, "Ranveer is crazy and unabashed and I love that about him. Both of us are passionate about our films and have a huge mutual admiration society. We've done some mad commercials together so it's great to be doing a film now."
Earlier, the duo had starred in a string of commercials for a travel website and their crackling chemistry left all in awe. It would be quite interesting to see them in a film on street rappers.
Apart from Gully Boys, Alia will also be seen in Ayan Mukherji's superhero flick starring Ranbir Kapoor. On the other hand, Ranveer has Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati coming up next.
