“I tried to copy you and I failed miserably”: Amitabh Bachchan on emulating Ranveer Singh in Gully Boy

Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy has truly impacted the audience by introducing the unheard truths about hip hop culture in India. By highlighting the lives of Indian street rappers Naezy and Divine, Zoya has established herself as a significant filmmaker with her highly-praised film whose admirers know no bounds. Basically, superstar Amitabh Bachchan sent a note to Ranveer Singh for his role as Murad Ahmed in the film which impressed the audience too, at the box office.

In an interview with Zoom TV, Big B talked about the popularity of younger actors in the present scenario and also shed light on how much Ranveer’s Gully Boy character prompted him to emulate the role. “You are not pulling the audience in anymore. It’s the younger stars, the younger generation, they are the more popular ones. I actually saw Gully Boy 10 times to be able to match or even come near Ranveer Singh. I met him last night and I told him, ‘thank you so much, Ranveer. I’ve copied you and I tried to copy you and I failed miserably.” Gully Boy co-starred Alia Bhatt.
Big B further talked about Shah Rukh Khan and how his favourite SRK movie was Swades. During the interview, he said, “For someone that has looked at him as an actor, I have always enjoyed the ones that he has done out of the ones that he has created his image on. I love fresh stories, I loved Swades. I thought that it is one of his best performances!”
