Zoya Akhtar Directorial Gully Boy featuring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles released this week. The movie is doing well at the box office will continue to do so in its extended weekend.

The movie was able to connect with the audience ever since the trailer was released. The song titled ‘Apna Time Aayega’ was on everyone’s lips. However, there was a certain comparison of the film with popular Hollywood film 8 Mile starring Eminem. Several people suggested that Gully Boy is the Indian version of 8 Mile.

The comparison was inevitable as Ranveer Singh plays a rapper and the final scene of the trailer also suggested the freestyle battle similar to the climax scene of 8 Mile. However, nothing was confirmed from the lead actors or the director until now.

In a recent conversation with a leading portal, director Zoya Akhtar opened up about Gully Boy being compared to 9 Mile. She said that people in India love to do this. She added that when Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara trailer released, people started comparing it with The Hangover, but when they saw the movie and stopped making the comparison. Therefore, it is pointless to react to such issues.

Zoya further explained that when people will watch Gully Boy, they’ll stop comparing it to 8 Mile.
