Ranveer Singh was at the receiving end of some love and praise from Hollywood star Will Smith for his performance in Gully Boy. On Smith's show Bucket List, the Aladdin actor also came up with a special episode, reflecting upon his journey to Bollywood and how much he was fascinated and in love with Indian cinema.
Like Smith, Ranveer posted a tribute video for the rapper-actor-comedian, showing his admiration for Big Will in his own peculiar way. In the video, Ranveer pulls off some robotic dance steps, coupled with ‘90s style Govinda moves, while a sequence of pictures appear in the background intermittently. The images of aliens and Smith that come and go behind a dancing Raveer remind us of Smith's famed character Agent J from Men In Black. In the clip, Ranveer appears to be in space, since the video is enhanced by CGI effects to look like one.
Ranveer is also dressed in a black suit with dark glasses, as he replicates Smith's character from the film. In Men In Black , Smith fights off extraterrestrial threats on Earth dressed in the same avatar.
Ranveer captioned the video as, "बिग विली स्टाइल 🕶 @willsmith."
Marking his debut in Bollywood, Smith has shot for a song sequence with the cast of Student of the Year 2, which is directed by Punit Malhotra. Ranveer, on the other hand, has launched his independent music label called IncInk that aims to promote indie music artists in India. Ranveer is also preparing for his role as Kapil Dev in '83, which will be directed by Kabir Khan.
