Bollywood has been all praises for the lead pair and Zoya Akhtar.
Few more words on #GullyBoy. @RanveerOfficial finest work yet. Contained yet free, nuanced yet explosive. @aliaa08 A brilliant, achingly true performance, your heart breaks. The rest of the cast were perfectly pitched. Take a bow @jayoza : brilliant camerawork in a complex film.

It’s refreshing to see how well mainstream Bollywood actors respond to such diverse movies which provide some sort of silver lining for the audiences who wish to see something other than overly prepped up romantic sagas.
However, ‘Gully Boy‘ ke charchay sirf India main nahi ho rahe.
The cinematic masterpiece has managed to woo people across seas and guess who’s raving about it? Will Smith!
This is some big news, Y’all. In case you might not know or don’t remember who Will Smith is, Imma help you with that.
He was Deadshot in ‘Suicide Squad’.
Or the Badass scientist-cum-zombie killer in ‘I Am Legend’.
And lately, he’s the meme from the YT Rewind video.
But we all know he’s the OG Fresh Prince.
The Hollywood Hotshot, Will Smith cannot stop praising ‘Gully Boy‘ and Ranveer Singh!
Smith openly talks about how much he loves the movie and how well he connects with it.
He talks about how he has experienced hip-hop from all over the world and yet he still has a special place for old-school hip-hop, which is what he loved about the movie.
And in the end, he wished Ranveer all the best for the movie.
The kind of support I demand from my friends!
In case you didn’t know, Ranveer and Will Smith have been friends for some time now.
Now, all we have to do is wait for Ranveer to respond to Will Smith. For someone who is as obsessed with Bollywood as I am, this is, honestly, a crossover I never knew I needed. So as we wait in anticipation for Ranveer’s response, here’s Will Smiths’ video we’ve been raving about.
