Audience calls us the new age Jai-Veeru: Siddhant Chaturvedi on Gully Boy co-star Ranveer Singh
Gully Boy is inspired by the lives of Mumbai-based rappers Divine and Naezy.
In a recent interaction with a leading media organisation, he said that the audience calls Ranveer Singh and him “new age Jai-Veeru”. “It’s not easy for someone to give so much of screen time to a debutant but Ranveer is a pure soul. I found my MC Sher in him, he mentored me and made me feel powerful. The audience calls us the new age Jai-Veeru,” he reportedly said.
Talking about the big break, he also said, “I waited very long for this break and had faith that I would impress the audience with this author-backed role, but I didn’t expect it to happen in a matter of two-three days.”
Gully Boy, co-written and directed by Zoya Akhtar, is the story of an underdog, who breaks the shackles of reality and realises his dream of becoming a well-known rapper. It is inspired by the lives of Mumbai-based rappers Divine and Naezy. The two of them have also contributed to the film’s soundtrack.
