Meanwhile, Twitter is all praises for both Ranveer and Alia – he plays an aspiring rapper, who hails from the slums of Mumbai and is struggling to make a mark in the world of Indian rap; Alia has been cast as his love interest, who appears to be a feisty young woman. "Gully Boy trailer has the unique kind of energy. The trailer is powerful, emotions are deeply layered and the rap are well placed. Ranveer and Alia add to Zoya Akhtar's magical yet real world. Can't wait," read a tweet, which basically summed up the general sentiment on the Internet about the trailer.
The damn subtlety!!!!!
The same guy who portrayed Khilji and Simmba?????

I don't understand how the hell does @RanveerOfficial portrays so many different characters in his movies so accurately in such a short time. Genius. Just genius. The trailer is the accurate representation of the life of every artist in this country. #GullyBoyTrailer#gullyboy

Ranveer and Zoya especially have perhaps their career best with Gully Boy. Ranveer's transformation is unbelievable – and I'm not about the physical aspect. His demeanour, sullen look and raging nerves are spectacularly portrayed in the #GullyBoyTrailer.

#GullyBoyTrailer left me SPEECHLESS. The film looks so hard hitting. And @RanveerOfficial, my boy I can't believe he's the same guy who played the villainous Khilji and then the notorious Simmba and now is #GullyBoy! I'm in awe of this incredible talent.
