Zoya added, “Also, his image from the Rock On series is affiliated to an entirely different genre of music. It would have been a bit of a culture shock for the audience to suddenly see him swerve from stadium-rock to hip-hop.”
Ranveer and Alia-starrer Gully Boy was lauded for its brilliant storyline and a very different line of music. The movie was released on February 14 and has been flying with success colours.
