Ranveer Singh's already ruling the cinema halls with his portrayal of a bad-cop-turned-good-cop named Sangram Bhalerao in Rohit Shetty's directorial Simmba. And just a week after, Ranveer has treated its new found mass audience with yet another shade of his acting in the first teaser of Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy.
Sharing a one-minute-and-thirty-seconds video on social media, Ranveer was seen rapping the song called Asli Hip Hop from the film which has again managed to impress the viewers to the T.
The teaser showed how Ranveer playing the character of an underground rapper from the bylanes of Mumbai trying to making a name for himself. It also featured Alia Bhatt and Kalki Koechlin in pivotal roles and in one frame Kalki and Ranveer shared a lip lock which has managed to catch everyone's eye.
"It is a very special story, one that I am closely attached to. It is set against the backdrop of flourishing desi hip hop scene coming out of Bombay (Mumbai).
"It is the story which represents Mumbai in its true sense and the city is my home town, these are my people, this is my language, so this is the story I am really attached to. It's an underdog story about a kid who broke through from great adversity in life to make it as a recording artiste," Ranveer told IANS.
While the trailer of Gully Boy will be out on January 9, fans and celebrities couldn't stop gushing about Ranveer's new avatar in the film. They flooded the social media with praises for Ranveer's acting and lauded the performances glimpses of the other cast as well.
