Directed by Zoya Akhtar, Gully Boy has already generated much noise because of the film's subject and storyline. It tracks the life and struggles of an aspiring rapper - the titular Gully Boy - who becomes a popular name in Indian rap music with his verse and lyrics inspired by the essence of Mumbai slums, where he hails from. In interviews, Zoya Akhtar has said that Gully Boy is largely inspired by the lives of Indian rappers Divine and Neazy, who also contributed to the film's rap tracks.
Meanwhile, Diplo is familiar with the Bollywood territory. In 2017, he collaborated with Shah Rukh Khan for the song Phurrr from Jab Harry Met Sejal. Shah Rukh and his family also hosted the American DJ at his Mumbai residence later.
Gully Boy is all set to hit screens on February 14.
