Ranveer Singh is currently engaged in shooting for his upcoming project Gully Boy. The Zoya Akhtar directorial will narrate the story of street rappers Divine and Naezy from Dharavi. The actor is shooting for the film in the same place and people in Dharavi have accepted him as one of their own. The treatment that the Padmaavat actor is receiving is overwhelming.

According to News 18, a source from the sets revealed, “There is a flood of love for Ranveer at Dharavi. The locals know that the actor through Gully Boy is bringing to life the real stories of their street heroes Divine and Naezy. They know he is working on a film that will show the world their struggles, their hopes, their ambitions, and their emotional and be winning journey. It is a hugely emotional moment for everyone at Dharavi and they are showering all the love, care and affection on Ranveer.”

“Ranveer is pulling off intense shooting schedules for Gully Boy. They last for 12 hours each day and now he is doing night shoots from 6 pm to 6 am every single day. The locals are showing him massive gestures of love. Some are sending him home-cooked food every day, some are sending him juices so that he could have them during breaks, some are just coming to chat and chill with him when he is on his breaks. Dharavi has made Ranveer their own. He is like a family to them,” he added.

Pictures that were shared on social media suggest that Ranveer has totally got into his character of a Gully Boy.
