Zoya Akhtar's "Gully Boy" released on Valentine's Day last year and tasted immense success. The Ranveer Singh-Alia Bhatt starrer was also selected as India's official entry at the 92nd Academy Awards. Today, as "Gully Boy" turns one, Alia Bhatt took to Instagram to share a BTS picture from the sets. And guess who the photographer is -- none other than her hero in the film, Ranveer Singh.
Earlier in the day, actors Siddhant Chaturvedi and Vijay Varma and rapper Divine detailed how the film changed their lives.
Siddhant, who became popular after playing MC Sher in the film, shared: "Life has changed, now I'm shooting for films as a lead hero in the industry back to back with the biggest banners, out there with some of the biggest directors. Everyday is different, either I'm reading, or I'm shooting for something or I'm shouting for bands, it's amazing. I'm loving life right now."
Vijay Varma won many fans with his portrayal of the character of Moeen in the film. The actor expressed: "Life has been extremely beautiful and eventful since Gully Boy released in Feb 2019. I am really in the thick of things, creating a lot of stuff. Everything else, apart from work, has taken a back seat. Now, it's been constant work and I am really enjoying the work right now."
Rapper Divine, who lent his voice to quite a few tracks in the film became highly sought-after post "Gully Boy". His songs "Mere gully mein", "Azaadi" and "Apna time aayega" still continue to dominate the playlists.
Divine said: "Life after 'Gully Boy' is the same as it was before the release of the film. I am still walking in the same gully, we are doing the same things. It's only upgraded because we're getting the bigger stages, bigger venues and bigger opportunities and I am very thankful to God."
On the work front, Alia Bhatt is awaiting the release of 'Brahmastra' opposite beau Ranbir Kapoor. She also has 'Takht' and 'Gangubai Kathiawadi' in her kitty.
