Apna Time Aayega! Yes, for sure, Ranveer Singh as the actor asserts in the trailer of Gully Boy that released on January 9. Directed by Zoya Akhtar, Gully Boy stars Ranveer as a street rapper from Mumbai and his character is inspired by the life of rapper Divine. The trailer of Gully Boy is mindblowing as if you were waiting for us to say it but nevertheless, we actually cannot get enough of it at the first go.
Set in the slums of Mumbai, Ranveer’s character aspires to become an established rapper but witnesses resistance in materializing his dream from several quarters including his family. Considering his father is a driver, Ranveer’s character is destined to follow the same route, as told to him by his employer. “Tera abbu ek driver hai. Naukar ka beta naukar banega. Yeh fitrat hai.” But Ranveer is determined enough and his mashooka Alia Bhatt is his sole source of support in his journey.

“Koi badi muraad agar sapne mein dikh jaaye, toh try karne ka na,” Ranveer tells Alia’s Safina in the middle of an intense moment and she motivates him to dream on. His father appears to be a disrespectful character as he not only objects to Ranveer’s aspirations but also assaults his wife.
Kalki Koechlin also features in the trailer that has gone viral already. No doubt. Very few details have been revealed about Alia's character except for the fact that she plays a medical student. Her dialogues in the trailer, are cutting, though.

As far as Ranveer’s and Alia’s casting in Gully Boy is concerned, Zoya had told a news agency previously, “I am sure a lot of people want to pair Alia and Ranveer. We wrote the part with Alia in mind and Ranveer in mind. So there was no question and we loved that they both said ‘yes’.”
Gully Boy is scheduled to release on February 14.
