Gully Boy trailer: Starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in lead roles, Gully Boy releases on February 14. Ranveer plays a rapper from the streets of Mumbai. His performance here looks quite engaging.
The trailer of Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh starrer Gully Boy is out and as many had hoped, it is captivating.
The trailer shows Ranveer Singh as the man who raps to express himself. 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). After watching Ranveer in Simmba, this one truly shows that Ranveer can get under the skin of any character, be it a corrupt cop who uses humour as a distracting device or a rapper from the streets of Mumbai.
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 significant role in the film.
On being asked about her character in the film, Alia said, “For the first time, I have cried less on screen. When you watch the film, you will see me. I can’t speak much about my character. But I say ‘dhoptaungi’, if you know what it means. I play a student in this film. I think it has been one of my best experiences working with Zoya and Excel. It is such a fantastic team. They are so on point with everything. The film is so raw.”

Zoya Akhtar is known for making movies that rely on picturesque locations where characters deal with first world problems. While the director made her debut with Luck By Chance, the trailer of Gully Boy shows that Zoya does not need to rely on European locations to make her movies work.
