After making a thunderous performance as Alauddin Khilji in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat, Ranveer Singh will be next seen in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy. Don’t go by the name, as the first looks are nowhere close to the glamour of the title. On Saturday, filmmaker Zoya Akhtar dropped a subtle hint about Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt’s character in Gully Boy. In the picture, Alia Bhatt is clad in a Hijab while Ranveer is looking just an ordinary guy from a small town.
Sharing the picture, Zoya Akhtar wrote, “14th February 2019 #gullyboy”, which is the official release date of Gully Boy. Earlier, pictures from the sets of Gully Boy were leaked on social media. In the pictures, Alia Bhatt was giving a brief déjà vu of her Udta Punjab look.
A couple of weeks ago, Ranveer Singh shared a picture of his jaw-dropping transformation which he underwent for his Gully Boy role. The actor was all beefed up for his menacing role as Alauddin Khilji in Padmaavat. However for Zoya Akhtar’s directorial, he had to lose weight and look lot leaner.
Zoya Akhtar has been sharing a lot of pictures from the sets of Gully Boy, however she never revealed about her leads’ Ranveer and Alia’s characters. There has been a lot of speculation about their roles as Ranveer Singh will be coming back to silverscreen after delivering a massive hit Padmaavat.
Gully Boy is directed by Zoya Akhtar and is based on the lives of street rappers such as Divine and Naezy. The film is slated to release on February 14, 2019.
