American DJ Diplo will be playing the lead in the much-awaited movie Gully Boy. Even if it is only limited to Twitter.
Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt's upcoming flick has already hit the right notes amongst fans and movie buffs, with netizens praising the duo's acting and dialogue delivery, while Ranveer's rap in Apna Time Aayega had the Internet collectively asking - Is there anything he cannot do?
But the craze has only begun and the hype around the movie is surreal.
The movie which celebrates the journey of a boy from Mumbai streets who goes on to become one of India’s most notable rappers and releases on this Valentine's Day - has found a new fan in Grammy-winning DJ Diplo. And if the hilarious reactions inspired from the trailer, songs, and the dialogues weren't enough, the DJ has stepped up the meme-game by photoshopping himself on Gully Boy's poster. Yep.
Taking to his Twitter account on Thursday, Diplo gave the makeover to the poster with himself superimposed on it and the title of his movie read - Random White Boy.
Going full desi, Diplo captioned the poster saying, "मेरा टाइम भी आएगा (Even my time will come)" and attached an Indian flag to his tweet, much to the liking of the Indian fans.
Here's the original poster:
