‘Gully Boy’ teaser: Ranveer Singh rocks as a street rapper, Deepika impressed

The teaser of Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Gully Boy’ was released online and it generates excitement. Ranveer Singh, who plays a street rapper in the film raps like a pro in the teaser. The trailer shows Alia Bhatt playing his ladylove and Kalki Koechlin is seen in a pivotal role. It shows how a rapper born in a slum area and turns a hit.

Talking about the film, Ranveer Singh had told Times Now, “Gully Boy is very dear to me. I strongly feel for these characters, these people are marginalized disenfranchised people from the lowest strata of the society who have a very tough existence. It’s a very difficult life. They find their expressions as artists.  They have started a music scene that is so unique. It is in Mumbaiya bhasha (dialect). These kids are 17 or 19 and they are writing social commentary about what’s fuck**d up in this system. They are making such strong observations, strong comments on the state of affairs. What I feel will bring a change is that now thousands of kids are listening to that. So I will do what I can do to give this musical talent a platform." 

Deepika Padukone is highly impressed with Ranveer and the ‘Gully Boy’ teaser. First, she wrote: "You are unstoppable," along with the fire emoticon and then she wrote: "I love you and I'm so proud of you!" I

The actor’s colleagues such as Karan Johar, Abhishek Bachchan, Jacqueline Fernandez and others showered love. "I love love love this! Zoya you star! Can't wait to see Gully Boy," tweeted KJo while Abhishek added: "This is insanely awesome! Fire!! Well done Zoya Akhtar."
