The first trailer for Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Gully Boy’, the new film starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, was released online on Wednesday.
Notably, Gully Boy is in part 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’.
A trailer release event was held 1:30 pm and was attended by the stars, director Zoya Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, who co-produces along with Farhan Akhtar, through their Excel Entertainment banner.
In the 2 minutes 42 seconds long trailer, actors Ranveer and Alia rebel against everyone around them to achieve their dreams. Ranveer plays a young man, whose only means of expressing himself in a harsh world is through rhymes.
The film celebrates the journey of a boy of Mumbai streets as he goes on to become one of India’s most notable rappers. ‘Gully Boy’ talks about the everyday struggle, grit and determination of the voiceless and the unseen talents. Special mention has to go to Vijay Raaz and Kalki Koechlin, who has a small but important role.
