As per Boxofficeindia.com, Gully Boy clocked in good figures mainly in Mumbai, Pune, and Bangaluru. In comparison, the film did decent business in other places. Though it wasn't a public holiday yesterday, Ranveer and Alia's film certainly got a good boost at the ticket windows because it was Valentine's Day. But how the film fares on the second day will be the real test for Akhtar's directorial venture.
