Gully Boy, at heart, is the story of an underdog with a dream. The film borrows from the lives of Mumbai-based street rappers Divine and Naezy, both of whom also feature in the film’s eclectic soundtrack.
The film, co-written by Zoya and her frequent collaborator Reema Kagti, also stars Siddhant Chaturvedi, Kalki Koechlin, Vijay Raaz, Vijay Varma and Vijay Maurya in important roles, among others. Upon its release on February 14, it mostly received favorable reviews from movie critics across the country. The word of mouth, too, is extremely positive.
Gully Boy, a joint production venture between Excel Entertainment and Tiger Baby Productions, is Zoya and Ranveer’s second collaboration after Dil Dhadakne Do (2015).
