Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy, starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, had its grand premiere at the Berlin Film Festival recently. And we have to say, the reactions have been fantastic. An audience known to be tough critically on films, have been raving about the movie. In fact, the TIFF director also revealed that it was the loudest cheer he had heard in 20 years for any film. So clearly, the movie has been loved by one and all at the Berlinale. But wait till you hear what director Zoya Akhtar has to say. The director just flew in from Berlin, and while chatting with us, mentioned how people were whistling and singing along.

Talking about the Gully Boy screening, Zoya Akhtar said, “It was wonderful. The screening was fantastic. It was an 1800-seater and I’ve never been in a cinema hall that big. The screen must have been 70 – 80 feet long. So, to watch your film projected on such a big screen made me go ‘Oh my God!’ By the end of it, Alia was like this is like being in Gaiety (a popular Bandra cinema house). The reactions were just crazy. It was a 50 per cent South East Asian audience and 50 per cent German audience. And half the Asian audience didn’t speak Hindi, so it was subtitled. But the reactions were insane. They were screaming, whistling at the entries, clapping, singing the songs. It was wild. It is also a serious film. It’s a drama, and you could understand that they were there with the film. It was special.”

Produced by Tiger Baby Productions and Excel Entertainment, Gully Boy is all set to release on Valentine’s Day (February 14). With so much buzz and excitement around the movie, we can’t wait to see it! What do you guys have to say about Zoya’s revelations? Share with us your thoughts in the comments section below!

Bollywood stars do many films throughout their career out of which some turn out to be blockbusters while some even tank at the box office. The reasons may vary but the actors have to move on from the failure and focus on their next project. Something very similar happened with the Jalebi star Rhea Chakraborty and she exclusively told team CineBlitz what went wrong with her last outing.

“The film’s poster being tagged as a copy of some other poster was a small thing. The film did not work at the box office is what affected me more. After the release of the film, it was featured on Amazon as well and people eventually saw the film on it and we got a lot of love from that. And as for the critics and the reviews, they rammed us which I feel wasn’t required. But I guess there was some politics and some agenda to all of this. I would never believe that my work was bad. People came up to me and told me that they really enjoyed the film, so my purpose as an actor was fulfilled,” revealed Rhea.

Rhea recently featured in Jassie Gill’s music video Surma Kaala and has also signed a multi-starrer project. The official announcement, however, is yet to be made. Stay tuned to CineBlitz for more such updates from the world of Bollywood.

The music video was released a few days back and once again it left the audience wanting for more. Well, worry not because we have got good news for all Rhea Chakraborty fans!
