The trailer of Ranveer Singh’s new film Gully Boy has been released but his wife Deepika Padukone hasn’t watched it yet, he revealed at the launch event in Mumbai on Wednesday. Deepika, though, has seen the teaser and she loved it as much as we did.
“She loved the teaser and is yet to see the trailer,” Ranveer said at the event. Directed by Zoya Akhtar, Gully Boy casts Ranveer as a street rapper from Mumbai. While Ranveer introduced Asli Hip Hop to Hindustan in the announcement video, the actor was seen rapping Apna Time Aayega in the trailer and did a fab job.
