Turns out that the Bollywood livewire has trained with street rappers for months before recording the songs. It has also come to light that Ranveer has sung 4 songs for the 'Gully Boy' album. 

A source close to the development revealed what the actor's character is all about as they said, “Ranveer plays the role of an extremely talented rapper from the streets of Mumbai who voices the emotions, dreams, ambitions, anger, passion of the masses living in Mumbai. Ranveer was certain that audiences will connect to the soul of the film more if they hear him sing as it will add more authenticity to the film and his character. He discussed it with Zoya and convinced her with his rapping skills. Zoya has seen Ranveer rapping in social circles and she was aware that he can rap but looking at his passion for the role and how hard he trained at rapping, she agreed to also present Ranveer as the singer in Gully Boy''. 

Marvelling at his dedication for the film and what it means to the actor, they added, ''He is so deeply, emotionally connected with the film’s message and he wanted to do justice to the voice of the streets. He prepped really hard for the film, worked for months on his singing and rapping skills by sitting and exchanging notes with the rappers of Mumbai.''

Ranveer has delivered massively as a singer in 'Gully Boy' and Zoya, as well as the rappers of Mumbai, are thrilled about this huge feat,” the source adds. Also starring Alia Bhatt, Kalki Koechlin, Vijay Raaz among many others, the film is all set to release on February 14, 2019.
