And, the superstar is thrilled that audiences there would get to see the real story of the rap revolution in India.
"I am very happy and proud that Gully Boy is releasing in Japan. It is a proud moment for all of us who have worked on the film that our film is traveling to the vast nation of Japan and we hope that they all see it and like it," says Ranveer.
