Alia Bhatt has been receiving accolades and appreciation for her extraordinary portrayal of Safeena Firdausi. In our review, our editor-in-chief Tushar Joshi praised Alia and wrote, " Alia does most of the talking with her eyes and that gaze which is enough to speak a thousand words." Apart from her act, Ranveer Singh and Siddhant Chaturvedi are winning everyone's hearts with their praiseworthy performance.
Looking at the current buzz and hype of the film, we are sure that Gully Boy has the potential to surpass the business of Raazi and Badrinath Ki Dulhania and emerge as Alia Bhatt's highest grosser of all-time. Apart from Alia, it has also turned out to be director Zoya Akhtar's biggest opener beating Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Dil Dhadakne Do.
