Ranveer Singh said, “It was the most fulfilling journey for me. Ranveer also shared, “I swear, if there was any other actor in this teaser and it wasn’t me, I would have been burnt to a crisp. Gully Boy premiered at the Berlinale Film Festival on February 9. Interacting with them in the prep workshops, working on the dialogues and collaborating with them for the music of the film has been an experience of a lifetime.” His character in Gully Boy was inspired by the lives of rappers Divine and Naezy. Ranveer Singh plays Murad in Gully Boy. Since it was also producer Farhan Akhtar’s birthday, the team also cut a cake at the launch. Casting

Comment(s) It’s hip-hop. She wrote, “In today’s India, to bring a Murad and Safeena, their Muslim-ness a matter-of-fact statement, into centre-stage, to give traction to those who live on the wrong side of the tracks, is an act of bravery. It is Mumbai. Look at what has happened to Spitfire and Divine, they are such great artistes. Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt and director Zoya Akhtar presented the trailer alongside co-producers Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani. The album highlighted the underground hip-hop scene in Mumbai and even though this was a mainstream Hindi film, the tracks were not Bollywood-ised in any way. (laughs) It is a very special time. The other significant roles were played by Alia Bhatt, Vijay Varma, Vijay Raaz, Kalki Koechlin, Amruta Subhash and Siddhant Chaturvedi.
