Last year, Will Smith visited India, where Singh and Smith shared some great time together on the sets of Karan Johar’s ‘Student Of The Year 2’ for the shoot of a special song. ‘Gully Boy’ has collected ₹18.70 crores on its release day and is being appreciated by audience and critics.
In an interview with a leading publication, Ranveer Singh said, “I have been listening to hip-hop ever since I was a kid. I have seen the entire evolution of rap in India from Baba Sehgal and Devang Patel to now Divine, Naezy and Bantai. But I got really hooked when Zoya came to me with this film. She called me to her place and showed me first the video of “Mere Gully Mein” and my mind was blown away. It is so authentic. These guys are real Bombay boys, street guys rapping in Bambaia. It was bursting with street flavor. I was hooked instantly and now listen to only that.”
