Before the release of the trailer, a short teaser featuring the song "Asli Hip Hop" was released which too impressed the critics and viewers alike. Ever since the first look of the film has been released, the excitement for the Ranveer and Alia-starrer has been on all-time high and now the overwhelming response to the trailer of the film is just cherry on the cake. "The only difference is that I am doing "Gully Boy" with one and "Brahmastra" with another", Alia responded. The Zoya Akhtar-directed film based on the life of a group of rappers in Mumbai. "Ek thoda zaada special hai, ek thoda kamm (One is a little more special than the other)", he said. Motivating him towards reaching his goal is his girlfriend Safina (Alia Bhatt) and a friendly rapper, played by Siddhant Chaturvedi (Inside Edge).
After the successful campaign of their previous movie Dil Dhadakne Do, they both will be together again in this upcoming movie. "I was born to do "Gully Boy" and I knew only I can pull off this character". The Film will open in theatres on February 14. If someone else had done it, I would have burnt out of jealousy.
