The sound of “Apna time aayega” reverberated at the Friedrichstadt-Palast in Berlin as Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh rapped away, much to the delight of the packed audience, at the world premiere of the forthcoming film “Gully Boy” at the 2019 Berlin International Film Festival.
“Packed house with the loudest, most passionate cheers. Berlinale gets a taste of the crazy Indian film fan at the world premiere of Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Gully Boy’,” tweeted Smriti Kiran, Creative Director, MAMI Mumbai Film Festival, who was present at the screening on Saturday night.
According to Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director, Toronto International Film Festival, a regular at the Berlinale, “Gully Boy” elicited the “biggest cheers” he had heard in “20+ years” at the annual film jamboree here.
Berlinale officials were grateful to Ranveer and the film’s cast and crew for leaving an impact that will be hard for the film fest crowd to forget. “Thank you Ranveer, we had a blast last night, you were absolutely amazing,” read a post on the official Twitter handle of the fest.
Ranveer, known for his effervescence and exuberance, exhibited why he’s best tagged as Bollywood’s powerhouse of energy. He rapped away the song “Apna time aayega” like a professional to give the audience a taste of the experience he has had doing a film on the street rappers of Mumbai. (IANS)
