Describing her role during the press interaction at the trailer launch of Gully Boy, Alia Bhatt said that for a change, she's made people cry in the film instead of it being the other way round. "About the character, don't know how much I am allowed to say as of now but I would like to say this that "jo maine dhota hai, iss film mein, jo dhoptungi na isko, jo dhoptuni na usko, I've never done that in my life!"
Directed by Zoya Akhtar, Gully Boy is not a biopic but inspired by the life stories of Indian rappers such as Divine and Naezy. Gully Boy is all set to hit screens on February 14.
