Directed by Zoya Akhtar, Gully Boy got the advantage of releasing on Valentine’s Day but showed a 30 per cent drop due to a working Friday. It is expected to improve during the weekend amid good reviews and positive word of mouth.
Gully Boy is the story of an aspiring rapper Murad (Ranveer), who beats all odds to win a rap contest and a cash prize that changes his life. It is inspired by the lives of rappers Divine and Naezy. Alia plays Ranveer’s hot-headed girlfriend in the film who aspires to become a surgeon but has her own share of struggles.
The film received a great response at the Berlin International Film Festival. Hollywood actor Will Smith also took to his Instagram to praise Ranveer’s work in the film.
