Alia Bhatt-Ranveer Singh starrer “Gully Boy” will hit theatres on February 14 next year.

The film is directed by Zoya Akhtar and produced by Excel Entertainment. It follows the story of slum rappers of Dharavi, Mumbai, a statement issued here said.

The makers also unveiled the first look of the film on social media in which both Alia and Ranveer are seen in simple, de-glam yet pensive looks.

The “Student of the Year” actor has her head covered with a hijab, while the “Padmaavat” star is wearing a hoodie.

Ranveer’s character in the film is reportedly inspired by real-life rappers, Divine and Naezy.

Ranveer is paired opposite Alia for the first time on the big screen, having been seen earlier in an advertisement.

The musical-drama film marks the second outing for Zoya and Ranveer, while it is for the first time Alia has collaborated with the “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” director.

The film also stars Siddhant Chaturvedi and Kalki Koechlin in pivotal roles.
