The upcoming film Gully Boy, which is headlined by Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, has locked a release date for itself. The film will release on 14th February 2019. Noted filmmaker Zoya Akhtar, who last helmed Dil Dhadakne Do, is directing the movie which brings Ranveer and Alia together for the first time.

Inspired from the real-life story of street rappers Naved Shaikh and Vivian Fernandez, the film went on floors a few weeks ago. Since Naved and Vivian, who are now popular as Naezy and Devine, lived in the slums of Dharavi in Mumbai, the film is being shot there only.

Ranveer and Alia both play rappers in the film and will be seen in a complete de-glam avatar. Besides announcing the release date of the film, the makers also launched the first look of both the actors.

Gully Boy is being bankrolled by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani. Besides Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh, the star cast of the film also includes names like Kalki Koechlin, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Vijay Varma.
