Ranveer Singh is on a dream run. He delivered two of the biggest hits of Bollywood as an actor in 2018 with Padmaavat and Simmba. The total collections of these two blockbusters were over 500 crore nett – making him the second only actor in the history of Hindi cinema to deliver this feat in a single calendar year! And there’s no stopping him in 2019 as he is already creating many more histories. With Gully Boy, a film that sees him debut as a rap/hip-hop artist, Ranveer has tasted instant success as a singer. In an absolutely new genre of music for Hindi film audiences, Ranveer has now delivered the biggest chartbuster of the country with the track Apna Time Aayega. The song is ruling all the music charts and is currently the No 1 track across all streaming platforms!
Ranveer says, “It is truly gratifying to be accepted as a Hip hop artist. I was thrilled to be in Zoya’s film because I had always wanted to do such a film because I have a natural, in-born affinity towards hip-hop. I loved this genre of music since I was a kid and I would have been heartbroken if I didn’t do Gully Boy. I would like to believe that I have given my heart and soul in the film and I hope audiences love the film. It’s also incredible that Zoya decided that I should sing in the album. It was definitely a challenge and I’m happy that people are liking the music of Gully Boy. It’s a very personal, very emotional and a very special moment for me in my journey in cinema.
