One of the things that has all the fans waiting on their toes for Gully Boy, is the on-screen romance between Ranveer Singh (Murad) and Alia Bhatt (Safeena), considering that this is the first time that the two B-town favourites will be sharing a screen together.
When asked about her experience shooting with Ranveer, Alia in a candid interview with DNA, revealed that the duo pretty much stuck to their characters, even when they weren’t shooting.
“It was interesting because even on set, when we had our characters in hand, we stayed within that. We didn’t fuss about it too much. Both of us would be quiet and talk every now and then between shots,” Alia told DNA.
Speaking about when they were shooting, she said that they shared a solid “give and take” equation.
"“...As two actors, there was a solid give and take, which worked well for our respective characters. Hopefully, people will feel that connection when they see the two of us together on screen. We have shown a real relationship.”" - Alia Bhatt to DNA
For this to happen, it was important for both of us to get into the characters completely, she said, adding that it wasn’t too hard for them to do, since:
“Ranveer and I are mad enough to get lost in a shot and believe that we are Murad and Safeena,” she told DNA.
Directed by Zoya Akhtar, the film is releasing on Thursday, 14 February.
