Ranveer thanks Zoya for this unique experience
Ranveer has been quite excited to be a part of this unconventional project. He thanked Zoya for giving him a unique and unforgettable experience with Gully Boy. Expressing his feeling, the Padmaavat actor said that he would have been extremely jealous if Gully Boy featured any actor other than him. "It is Mumbai. It's hip-hop. It is me," Ranveer had once said.
Alia's look reminds of Sehmat from 'Raazi'
Ranveer shared another poster of Gully Boy unveiling Alia's look from the movie. In the second poster, the actors sported intense expressions as they shared earphones. Alia covered her head with a scarf and looked impressive in her deglamorized look. After seeing this poster, we were reminded of Sehmat from Raazi. On a related note, it seems music will bind the two characters together.

'Gully Boy' is inspired by Divine and Naezy
Notably, Gully Boy is inspired by the lives of renowned street rappers Vivian Fernandes aka Divine and Naved Shaikh aka Naezy. The two shot to stardom with their song Mere Gully Mein. The genre hip-hop interested Divine since his teenage days. His raps are his way of expressing his emotions. He is obviously ecstatic about the movie and feels Ranveer is a perfect choice.
