The first footage gives us a glimpse of the life of Ranveer's character. We see him turn to crime, in a brief shot. We see him rap his heart out, standing in the middle of a group of people who are cheering him on. We see him get embarrassed, as a man, probably his father, catches him rapping in front of a mirror. We also see the making of a huge star in him.
Gully Boy has been directed by Zoya Akhtar. This will be her second collab with Ranveer after Dil Dhadakne Do. The story of the film has been inspired by the life rap stars like Divine and Naezy.
