Helmed by the Tiger Baby Zoya Akhtar, Gully Boy created magic on the silver screen. Starring Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Kalki Koechlin, the film has already grossed over Rs 72.45 crore in its extended four-day weekend. While the character essayed by the Simmba actor is making rounds on social media, there is also another star who is shining bright in the film. Vijay Varma, who played the actor’s friend Moeen in the film won many hearts with his brilliant screen presence.
In an EXCLUSIVE interview, Vijay went on in lengths to talk about his on-sets camaraderie with his co-star Ranveer Singh. Vijay told how he was awestruck by Ranveer’s commitment and his passion to get into the skin of the character. The actor showered words of praises, as he said “I was awestruck by his commitment, he was so committed to his part, I didn’t see the party animal in Ranveer Singh. I didn’t see it for once and I am being completely honest. I saw that Ranveer Singh on the wrap party, the crazy Ranveer Singh with energy. On the sets, he was just Murad. Totally introvert, into himself, extremely inhibited, just trying to channelise all his energy inward. So beautiful to see, so pleasant on the sets. He was invisible.”
Recalling an incident from the shoot, Vijay told how Ranveer wasn’t willing to get any attention from the people of Dharavi. “We were shooting in Dharavi surrounded by 5000 people peeping out of their windows, doors. They look at Ranveer for some time and later started looking away from him for other things, just because he didn’t want any attention.”
