India cheered when Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy, starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in lead roles was selected as India’s official entry to the Academy Awards 2020. The film, which also introduced to us Siddhant Chaturvedi, minted good money and was loved by the audience and the critics alike.
However, the film is now out of the race, and all we can do is to celebrate how far it went. The one person, who wasn’t really pleased with Gully Boy
This film is based on Hollywood film 8 Mile, yahan ke movie mafia chatukar critics ke chaatne se kya hota hai, it’s not original content like Uri and Manikarnika, why Hollywood will give award to a film which is copied from their film ? pic.twitter.com/vSVeVHVaUB

Gully Boy‘s similarities with 8 Mile have been spoken and written about in the past. However, until you’re living under the rocks, you do know about Rangoli’s past digs at Alia, who she refers to as a part of the nepotism gang! She went on a Twitter rant after Gully Boy
We wonder how the Gully Boy gang would respond to this!
