It was in September this year when Gully Boy was selected as India's official entry to Oscars. After the announcement of Gully Boy going to the Oscars 2020, Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt took to social media to express their excitement. The actors shared a note thanking the Film Federation of India for selecting Gully Boy as India's offical entry to Oscars 2020. They also congratulated the cast and crew of the film for the selection.

Now that Gully Boy is out of the Oscars rate, India has to wat for the next year to again realise its dream of getting an Oscar trophy.
