#GullyBoy: Ranveer trolled for injuring fans during 'Lakme Fashion Week'
Ranveer Singh is all set to play a street rapper in his upcoming release Gully Boy. The actor has gone all out to promote the movie in his characteristic over-the-top, often nonsensical exuberance. His promotional strategies recently worked against him after he ended up injuring his fans with a surprise dive during Lakme Fashion Week. Really, what were you thinking, Ranveer?
Ranveer's rapping sessions for Gully Boy caught everyone's fancy these days. In fact, his impromptu rapping during LFW made heads turn. He certainly set the stage on fire with his performance. But, all of a sudden, Ranveer jumped into the crowd for no apparent reason. While many fans went crazy over his dive, he ended up injuring some of them. Ouch!
Ranveer's actions didn't go down well with the Twitter users who slammed him for his childish act. While some called him an 'overrated actor' and 'a sick person', some said it was his 'cheap antic' to promote Gully Boy. One user wrote, "Seems beginning of the mid-life crisis for him." Another tweeted, "He is living the dream- that's ok- don't kill others dream man."
Notably, a Twitter user reached out to Ranveer about the social media slamming over his surprise dive. The actor accepted his mistake and assured to be mindful in future. The Twitter user also shared a grab of Ranveer's response on Twitter.
So i sent Ranveer some DM's about the negative reactions to the crowd dive and what he said at the music launch, and he replied back with this message, he acknowledges what happend and wat he did and he said he will be mindful in the future. Thankyou for the reply Ranveer ❤️ pic.twitter.com/VAzBtqstRp— RanveerxDeepika (@zara008) February 5, 2019
This isn't the first time Ranveer shocked his fans with such a crazy act. Earlier, the actor created chaos during Gully Boy music launch near Mumbai's JJ Hospital. He asked his fans to make noise, "wahan k sab murde jaag jaye. Bole toh police aani mangti hai idhar". Ranveer also assured his fans not to be scared of the police as he is Simmba. Whatever that means!

"Bole toh police aani mangti hai idhar, lekin fikar nahi karne ka tumhare bhai ka abhi word hai police mein bole apun bhi simmba hai baba"

Gully Boy's trailer and songs are certainly grabbing the eyeballs and his fans seem to be excited about the release. However, no one with sane mind can accept these kind of promotions. It is about time Ranveer gets a hold of his horses. Talking about Gully Boy, the movie is helmed by Zoya Akhtar and also stars Alia Bhatt, Kalki Koechlin and Vijay Raaz.
