After teasing the fans with one picture from the movie on Tuesday, Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt introduced the first look to their fans today. In the picture, Ranveer and Alia are sharing earphones and listening to the music.
Alia Bhatt is seen wearing hijab, while Ranveer Singh is dressed in shabby casual clothes. Earlier, in the poster shared by the actors, they wrote, ‘Gully Boy- Apna Time Aayega’. The release date of the film is also revealed. It will release in theatres on 14th February 2019.
Also, Gully Boy will have its world premiere at 69th Berlin International Film Festival which will take place from February 7 to February 17. The film is bankrolled by Zoya Akhtar’s brother Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment. The film celebrates the struggles of street rappers from Mumbai. It is also said to be inspired by the life of rapper Divine.
"It is the story which represents Mumbai in its true sense and the city is my home town, these are my people, this is my language so this is the story I am really attached to. It's an underdog story about a kid who broke through from great adversity in life to make it as a recording artist," Ranveer told IANS.
