Since the time the first(1st) song of Gully Boy ‘Apna Time Ayega’ released, Ranveer Singh has been showered with compliments for his rapping prowess. The last song of the movie ‘Mere Gully Mein’ was released on January 23 and this too has powerful lyrics with amazing rendering.
It is perhaps for the first (1st) time that the songs of a Hindi movie are pure rap and they are being liked by one and all.
“Gully Boy” is one of 2019’s most awaited movies and actor Ranveer Singh says it was the original “Mere Gully Mein” track that had him hooked.
In the Zoya Akhtar directorial, the 33-year-old actor plays an up-and-coming rapper who sets out to accomplish his dream by rhyming about his life on the Mumbai streets.
Ranveer says the original number, created by underground rappers Divine and Naezy, blew him away when he saw its video for the first(1st) time.
“When Zoya pitched me this movie, ‘Mere Gully Mein’, the original video was the first(1st) thing she showed me. She said that this is the flavor of the movie I want to make and the video totally blew my brains.
“I mugged up the whole rap and since then I started following Naezy and Divine’s music. ‘Mere Gully Mein’ for me, like for many others, is a huge breakthrough for the scene, the movement that’s happening in our society and I’m happy that I was the first(1st)one to whom this breakthrough of a song reached,” he told PTI.
