It's a pretty usual notion that when a movie premieres at some international film festival, it has what it takes to be a brilliant cinema. Of course, certain movies are intentionally made keeping the film festivals in mind and they fail to strike any chord with the ordinary audiences. Manoj Bajpayee's Gali Guleiyaan is a classic example of this. Yet we believe Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy will have all the right ingredients that would make it an entertaining ride. The movie is all set to have a world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival and it's quite a big deal.

Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt's first collaboration together before Karan Johar's Takht is making headlines for all the right reasons. The movie is based on a rapper who starts his journey from slums but is determined to make it big in the industry. The Raazi actress plays a Muslim girl and even his romantic interest. The film is reportedly based on Mumbai based rappers - Divine and Naezy. The actor had to go through a rigorous weight loss training, especially after he gained weight to play Alauddin Khilji in Padmaavat.
