The Gully Boy trailer, featuring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, has been creating waves ever since its release. Directed by Zoya Akhtar, Gully Boy has Ranveer Singh play a rapper and Alia Bhatt, a medical student. The film is loosely inspired from the lives of Mumbai-based rappers Divine and  Naved Shaikh aka Naezy. The project is produced by by Zoya Akhtar's Tiger Baby and Farhan Akhtar's Excel Entertainment productions.
