Gully Boy is the film that features Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt along with Siddhant Chaturvedi. The movie centers around the story of Murad, a young person who wants to be a rapper and he has to cope with many tough decisions on the way of pursuing his dream.

Though India has had three nominations in the International Feature Film category for Oscar, the nation has never actually bagged an award. The three films that got nominated were Mother India released in 1957, Salaam Bombay released in 1989 and Lagaan released in 2002.

All that happened and maybe, 2020 will be the year we can see some changes…
