Rapper Slow Cheeta, who has shared screen space with actor Ranveer Singh in the upcoming film "Gully Boy", says the actor is the most special talent that the country has. Talking about working in Gully Boy, the rapper told IANS over phone from Mumbai: "Ever since this film came my way, I feel I am blessed to have worked with Zoya Akhtar, Ranveer and Alia Bhatt. They all are just special."
"I had my scenes with Ranveer and I think he is the most special talent that our country has had for a very long time and I don't think that position is replaceable for a long time. He is the king of the jungle," added Slow Cheeta, whose real name is Chaitnya Sharma.
Directed by Zoya Akhtar, "Gully Boy", is said to be inspired by the life story of street rappers Divine and Naved Shaikh aka Naezy, known for their song "Mere Gully Mein".
Slow Cheetah describes Zoya as "God sent".
"She is magical as a director and brilliant to work with... (I am) hoping that this film gives our culture light," he added.
Gully Boy also stars Alia Bhatt and Kalki Koechlin in important roles. The film directed by Zoya Akhtar is based on the struggles of Mumbai’s street rappers. It is slated to release on February 14.
