Gully Boy is trailer is out now! At the trailer launch director Zoya Akhtar completely clears off the air going on about the movie being a biopic. This movie is influenced by the life of Divine (Vivian Fernandes) and Naezy (Naved Shaikh), underground rappers from Mumbai and their journey from the lanes of the city to acquiring popularity, but the story is totally fictional and not a biopic!
Ranveer Singh has been captivating our hearts and also the box office by his recent superhits like Padmaavat, Simmba and now Gully boy. All the three movies had a lot of different avatars and Ranveer did justice to all of them. He has himself rapped in Gully B0y (Asli hip Hop). The actor has been known to have a great love for rapping and this movie was just perfect for him. He can be seen rapping for expressing his feelings. Living a less privileged life, he is told over and over again that one cannot rise above the economic and social status they are born in but he believes ‘apna time aayega’ (my time will come).
Alia Bhatt plays Ranveer’s love interest who supports him throughout. It looks like she is studying to be a doctor. Kalki Koechlin also plays a crucial role in the film as someone from the music industry.
Watch the trailer launch here to get more spicy news about the 18 song album, to see how Alia blushes when mentioned Ranbir and how Ranveer cannot stop rapping the whole time. One can say he is a method actor!
