The filmmaker wasn't clear if the film would be a sequel to Gully Boy or tell the story of an altogether new character.

Gully Boy (2019), which was released on Valentine's Day, tells the story of aspiring hip-hop singer Murad (Ranveer Singh) who aims to break out of his ordinary existence and become a singer-songwriter.

The musical is Zoya Akhtar's fourth feature film and has also become her first Rs100 crore film. Besides, Zoya has written and directed two short films in the anthology films Bombay Talkies (2013) and Lust Stories (2018).

Following Gully Boy, which also stars Alia Bhatt, Zoya and Kagti's next production, the web-series Made In Heaven, was premiered on Amazon Prime Video on 8 March.
