Ranveer Singh – Alia Bhatt’s Gully Boy is all set to hit the screens tomorrow (February 14, Valentine’s Day). The movie is one of the most-exciting films of the year. It showcases the life of a struggling kid from the slums and how he becomes a huge name in the world of rap and hip-hop. His struggle with his family and society’s approval and his relationships are also highlighted. This has made people draw comparisons with Indian rap sensations, Naezy and DIVINE’s life. And the former agrees. Naezy clarifies that the movie is inspired from their life, but isn’t a biopic!

We are working on those basis itself.” Check out the the video below to check out Naezy’s revelation!
