Ranveer In Gully Boy
There's no doubt that Ranveer Singh is one of Bollywood's best actors. Having seen him in intense roles like Alauddin Khilji in Padmaavat and Peshwa Bajirao in Bajirao Mastani, Ranveer will be seen in another intense but more contemporary role. He will play the lead in Gully Boy, portraying the life of Indian rapper Divine. This newlywed is busy promoting his upcoming movie Simmba which will release on the 28th of December.
