Gully Boy is supported by actors like Kalki Koechlin, Vijay Raaz and Amruta Subhash.
For Gully Boy, in his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote, "The film can be whole-heartedly commended for its craft, fascinating characters and Ranveer Singh. He absolutely kills the slow-burning rapper act. He is well supported by feisty Alia Bhatt."

The rumoured couple also travelled to New York together on New Year's to spend time with Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor. Alia also featured In Neetu Kapoor's 'all the heartbeats' album.
