Actors Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt launched the music album of their upcoming film Gully Boy with a big music concert in Mumbai. The actors set the stage on fire by singing the songs from their film, directed by Zoya Akhtar. Adding more energy to the concerts were many music artistes including Naezy, Divine, Siddhant, D-Cypher, Dub Sharma, D’Evil, Mc Altaf, Rahul Raahi, Nexus, Spitfire, Ace, Kaam Bhaari, Beatraw, Mc Todfod, Maharya, 1000rBh, Noxious D and Dee MC.
Both Alia and Ranveer coordinated their outfits in shades of green and looked fantastic. While Ranveer, owing to his weird sense of style, dressed up in a fluorescent lime green outfit, it was a sexy green sequin dress for Alia. Both the stars entertained the crowd by crooning to the songs. The audience went berserk as Ranveer performed with real-life Gully Boy Vivian Divine on the stage.

Scoring chartbuster success with his hip-hop artiste avatar for Gully Boy, Ranveer has left fans totally smitten as he is seen not only playing a street rapper in Zoya Akhtar’s directorial but is also lauded for having sung four songs in the album, two of which are already out and raging.
Talking about coming across as natural, Ranveer said, “Hip-hop is something that’s very alive inside me and always has been ever since I was a kid. I have a natural affinity and inclination towards it and I was thrilled to be in Zoya’s film because I had always wanted to do such a film.”
The passion with which Ranveer has crooned to Asli Hip Hop and Apna Time Aayega is proof enough that the interest in the field is not new. “I think I was in Class 3 or 4 when I first got into hip-hop. I loved listening to Snoop Dog, Tupac Shakur, The Notorious B.I.G, while growing up and I have been into that kind of music ever since. I used to watch a lot of MTV and that’s where I first experienced it. There is a cousin of mine who migrated to the US and whenever he used to come down for summer holidays, he used to bring this music and we used to sit and hear it all the time,” Ranveer told IANS earlier.
Starring Alia Bhatt, Vijay Raaz, Kalki Koechlin, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Vijay Verma apart from Ranveer, Gully Boy is slated to hit cinema screens on February 14.
