Mumbai :- The first trailer for Gully Boy starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, is out on Wednesday. A trailer release event was held today and was attended by the stars, director Zoya Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, who co-produces along with Farhan Akhtar.
‘Gully Boy’ is based on the life and struggles of rapper Divine – its name is inspired by his breakout song, Mere Gully Mein – and his troupe of street rappers, who go by the name ‘Gully Gang’.
Ranveer plays a young man, whose only means of expressing himself in a harsh world is through rhymes.
Alia Bhatt and Kalki Koechlin will be seen as Ranveer’s love interests in the movie.Alia is a feisty young girl from a background not too different from Ranveer’s character’s, and Kalki represents the mainstream success he aspires to.
Gully Boy will premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival’s Berlinale Special category, ahead of its release on February 14.
