In Gully Boy, Ranveer plays a budding street rapper from the slums of Mumbai. He has sung several songs in the film, including Apna Time Aayega , Asli Hip Hop and Mere Gully Mein, which have been released. "Hip-hop is something that's very alive inside me and always has been ever since I was a kid. I have a natural affinity and inclination towards it and I was thrilled to be in Zoya's Gully Boy because I had always wanted to do such a film," Ranveer said in a statement to news agency IANS.
Alia Bhatt, who has been cast opposite Ranveer Singh, plays the role of an aspiring medical student.
Gully Boy is inspired by the struggles and work of Divine and Naezy. Both of them have been closely associated with the film.
In addition to Ranveer and Alia, Gully Boy also stars Kalki Koechlin, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Vijay Raaz.
