The movie, backed by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment, is about the lives of street rappers from Mumbai’s chawls and ghettos. Zoya and Ranveer attended a few sessions of two street rappers, Naezy and Divine, who were the subjects of a documentary Bombay 70, while researching for the film. Gully Boy is reportedly inspired by the characters of Naezy and Divine.
