Mumbai Mirror reports that the 20-day shooting schedule of Gully Boy in Mumbai begins on Tuesday. Even after being advised to take bed rest, Alia has decided to not cancel her dates. The actress, who recently celebrated her 25th birthday, will reportedly be in the shoulder sling all the time except when she is on camera. The film’s team is, however, taking all precautions to ensure Alia doesn’t stress herself out.

Last week, Alia ended up injuring her shoulder and right arm while performing a stunt for the supernatural flick Brahmastra in Bulgaria. The team was shooting for an action scene when Alia fell and hurt herself. Reports also claimed that there was a blood clot in her arm. Detailed medical reports indicate a ligament tear and hematoma, as stated in the same report.

Zoya Akhtar's musical Gully Boy is produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani's Excel Entertainment. It is a story of four friends from an overcrowded slum of Mumbai, their passion for rapping and how they work towards a better life.The film is slated to release on 14 February, 2019.
