Bollywood reacts to gritty ‘Gully Boy’ trailer

Entertainment Desk

The trailer for Zoya Akhtar’s new film ‘Gully Boy’ was released yesterday on the 9th of January 2019. The film cast includes Bollywood’s best in Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt who are starring in a film together for the first time. 

‘Gully Boy’ is going to be Zoya Akhtar’s fourth feature film (not including Bombay Talkies and Lust Stories where she shares directorial credits). She is known for making films that are very different from the stereotypical Bollywood love stories audiences have gotten used to seeing. Each one of her past films is very different from the other. ‘Gully Boy’ seems to be the most unique one yet. 

The movie is about the emerging rap scene on the streets of Mumbai. The story revolves around the main character played by Ranveer Singh who is the son of a driver but is trying to do something with his life.  

The creative beats and lyrics in the trailer not only excited fans, but members of the Bollywood fraternity as well. Multiple Bollywood stars reacted to the exciting trailer. 

Director and producer Karan Johar reacted to the trailer in a way only Karan Johar can. 

This was followed by other huge names like Anil Kapoor also tweeting about the trailer:

Ayushmann Khurrana, the star of arguably one of the best movies last year, Andhadhun, soon followed suit and declared his love for the gritty trailer.

Zoya’s brother Farhan Akhtar also reacted to the trailer: 

‘Gully Boy’ with its star-studded cast and 8 Mile vibe is likely to be a huge success. Ranveer Singh can do no wrong it seems, as his last two movies, Padmaavat and Simmba, have been his highest grossing films to date and have both crossed the 200 crore mark. With this kind of momentum that he’s got going and with the added talent of Alia Bhatt, currently one of if not the best actresses in Bollywood, Gully Boy is going to be a definite hit at the box office. 

The movie releases on the 14th of February 2019. Watch the trailer below:
