After releasing the posters of Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer Gully Boy, the makers of the film released a trailer announcement video on Friday. The film directed by Zoya Akhtar is scheduled to hit the theatres on February 14.
Zoya Akhtar has always delivered unique takes on simple ideas. From Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara to Dil Dhadakne Do, the writer-director is known for her ‘hatke’ films. Her latest project Gully Boy which features Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, two of the biggest actors in the industry today, is all about hip-hop from the streets. The actors announced the date of trailer release in an interesting way with Ranveer’s rap song Asli Hip Hop as the voice over while showing snippets from the film.
Several celebrities have reacted to the song as it shows Ranveer talking about a small town boy aspiring for success. The video stars Alia and Kalki Koechlin with Ranveer roaming the streets of Mumbai as an underground rapper.
Filmmaker Karan Johar wrote that he loved the teaser and can’t wait to see the film #GullyBoy.
