Directed by Zoya Akhtar, Gully Boy is based on real-life story of rappers Divine and Naezy. We can't wait for the movie to release as two of the most incredible actors coming together for the first time is one of the best casting coups ever!
Although Alia and Ranveer have worked in a couple of ads for an e-com travel portal, this will be their first appearance on the big screen together. Also, Gully Boy would be the second collaboration between Zoya and Ranveer after Dil Dhadakne Do. The film is scheduled to release on February 14, 2019.
Recently, we got a glimpse of Singh's look in his upcoming movie Gully Boy and boy, we couldn't recognise him. Alia Bhatt, who is sharing the screen space with Singh, too looked unrecognisable. Watch their unique and different look here:
The Gully Boy cast and crew wrapped up their 50 days schedule in a unique way. Zoya Akhtar took to her Instagram story to share a video of her team who are seen happily jamming together. The entire crew was seen rapping and dancing on street and vanity van. Watch the video here:
