Bollywood actors Alia Bhatt abnd Ranveer Singh have shared their first looks from upcoming movie - Gully Boy - and also announced the release date. Directed by Zoya Akhtar, the film will hit theatres on February 14, 2019.
Sharing the news with fans, the actors wrote, “Gully boy. 14th February 2019 :) @RanveerOfficial #ZoyaAkhtar @ritesh_sid @FarOutAkhtar #GullyBoy.”
Gully Boy is inspired by the rappers from the slums of Dharavi in Mumbai. Ranveer, who is paired opposite Alia for the first time on the big screen, essays the role of a street rapper in the film.
The film also stars Siddhant Chaturvedi, Vijay Varma and Kalki Koechlin in pivotal roles.
Zoya and Ranveer attended a few sessions of two street rappers, Naezy and Divine, who were the subjects of a documentary Bombay 70, while researching for the film. Gully Boy is reportedly inspired by the characters of Naezy and Divine.
Talking about the film, Vivian Fernandes aka Divine had earlier told Hindustan Times, “If you’re writing a film about hip-hop, the most important thing is you should be a good writer. Zoya had come for one of our shows; that’s how she discovered us. Then she visited the place where we lived and I was more than happy to chat with her and Reema (Kagti, partner in scriptwriting) and tell them everything about the [hip-hop] scene. I don’t know the story, but we’re a part of the film and its music. We will be going on the sets, as the shooting has started. Hopefully, Gully Boy mein bhi aayega kuchh hamara!”
