Is ‘Gully Girl’ Alia Bhatt the newest rapper in Bollywood? Divine is all for it!
By Bryan Durham - January 25, 2019
The Gully Boy music launch last night, among other things, introduced Bollywood and pretty much everybody else to a new emcee when Divine took the mic and asked the crowd to give mad props to a new female “rapper”. No, not Dee MC, but the film’s leading lady: Alia Bhatt.
While not much else is known about the film apart from it being a story of the underground hip-hop scene in Mumbai. Reportedly, it is based on the lives of Mumbai’s best known urban hip-hop artists, Divine (Vivian Fernandes) and Naezy (Naved Shaikh).
The film’s leading lady is someone known to get behind the mic to croon some of her film’s songs, but yes, we’re aware she’s still some ways off before getting confident enough to spit some rhymes.
So yeah, Divine might just have been pulling a fast one when he announced MC Alia, but we can totally get behind this news, if it happens.>
