by Vibhuti Gupta, Thursday, May 03, 2018

Multi-talented superstar Ranveer Singh who has wrapped up the shoot for Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy says that he is really attached to the story of the film. While interacting with the media as he unveiled Carrera eyewear's #DriveYourStory campaign and premiered a short film based on his life journey, Ranveer also spoke about his upcoming movie.

Gully Boy is slated to release on February 14th, 2019

Talking about Gully Boy, Ranveer said, "I have just completed shooting of 'Gully Boy'. 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 artist," he added.

Ranveer also expressed that becoming a Bollywood hero was a dream, "For me, to be a Hindi film hero was the dream but seemed very much out of my reach until I had a realisation that I can accept failure but I can't accept not trying. So, however, daunting the odds may seem, I am going to be brave and muster up the courage and do what my heart says. I just want to say youngster out there to follow your heart, pursue your passion and don't be afraid because nothing is impossible," he said.

On the work front, Ranveer will be seen in Rohit Shetty's Simmba opposite Sara Ali Khan and he will also essay the character of  Former Indian cricket team captain Kapil Dev in Kabir Khan's 1983.
