After releasing the posters of Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer Gully Boy, the makers of the film released a trailer announcement video on Friday. The one and a half minute video gives a glimpse into the Zoya Akhtar directorial. Kalki Koechlin who plays a pivotal role in the movie also makes an appearance here. From the looks of it, the film, based on the life of street rappers of Mumbai seems quite intriguing.
The video begins with beatbox sounds and soon we get to see Ranveer rapping and preparing the lyrics of his songs in the streets of Mumbai. Alia is introduced with the same intense look she wore in the poster of the film. Her various shots in the video will remind you of Alia of Udta Punjab where she was seen in a de-glam and rugged avatar. Kalki seems to be playing the role of a carefree girl. Seeing Alia and Ranveer together on the screen leaves you wanting to see more of them.

Just like Ranveer, we too are ‘stunned’ by this teaser-cum-trailer announcement video. In a chat with indianexpress.com, the Simmba actor shared how he was stunned by the teaser of Gully Boy.
“With Gully Boy, I was just concerned with just being in the moment. I wouldn’t concern myself with going to the monitor and checking what’s happening. So, I didn’t know how the film looked like. I didn’t see too many frames either. We finished shooting. Zoya went to New York for six months where she edited the film and it’s only recently that she had to dub a line for the teaser. I went in to the studio and I saw Gully Boy for the first time and I was like (stunned),” he said.
By the end of the video, we get to know the trailer release date of Gully Boy. The trailer will be released on January 9. It ends with Ranveer saying, “Apna Time Aayega (Our time will come)”. Sharing the video on Twitter, Ranveer wrote, “#AsliHipHop – #GullyBoy Trailer announcement.”
The first look of the film has left Deepika Padukone and the film fraternity impressed. Commenting on Ranveer’s Instagram post, Deepika wrote, “Ranveer Singh you are unstoppable! I love you and I am so proud of you.”
Ranveer’s close friend and actor Arjun Kapoor also commented on the teaser and tweeted, “Asli talent ki vulcano #ZoyaAkhtar with apna dil ka raja @RanveerOfficial & mini meryll @aliaa08 produced by the Maverick trendsetters @FarOutAkhtar & @ritesh_sid cannot wait for Valentines Day cause it’s a date with #GullyBoy !!!”
