Bollywood superstar Ranveer Singh feels young hip-hop and rap artiste Spitfire is a big reason why everybody tuned into his 2019 film Gully Boy. Spitfire, whose real name is Nitin Mishra, was dubbed as a prodigy for the incredible lyrics of the song, Asli Hip Hop.

“Nitin AKA Spitfire is a lyrical prodigy. He is a large part of the reason everybody tuned into Gully Boy during its first promo when he wrote Asli Hip Hop. He is the one who wrote Murad’s part in all of the rap battles,” said Ranveer, referring to his character of Murad in the film, a youngster from the slums who goes on to become a hip-hop star.

Ranveer added: “When his matchless raw talent and pure passion revealed itself to me, it became a large part of the reason I even wanted to participate in the business in the first place.”

Ranveer also spoke about his favourite track in Spitfire’s new EP titled Partein, which released on Friday.

“This new EP features one of my favourite tracks so far, Zalzala (a track from the EP). When I am in the gym it gets me hyped and pumped up. When I hear Sangeet and Afterparty (other tracks from the EP) they transport me into an elevated spiritual space and put me in a deep, thoughtful, reflective frame of mind,” Ranveer said.

The EP speaks of the rapper’s versatility, fearlessness and his beautiful spirit, says Ranveer.

“Partein is a demonstration of skill and maturity. Tune in and hear your heart out. I can’t wait for his next evolution,” he added.

Ranveer has founded the independent record label IncInk with Navzar Eranee. Spitfire is managed by the label.

News18 Logo

Veteran Filmmaker Rahul Rawail was seen at the jumbo Covid facility in BKC, Mumbai, where the 69 year old received his first dose of vaccine against Covid- 19. While many of his peers from Bollywood are still contemplating whether they should take the vaccine shot or not, Rawail known for films like Arjun and Betaab walked straight into the vaccination center in BKC on 1st March to get vaccinated.

When we caught up with the veteran, this is what he had to say about his experience “This morning I got a call from David Dhawan saying ‘I heard you are taking the vaccine today, are you taking it today?’ I said yes. David said he will take it after two weeks, I told him what’s the point…..I didn’t even feel the pinch when I was administered the vaccine. I would prefer Covisheild over Covaxin. My doctor told me that I can go straight to the airport after the vaccine.”

Rawail who also plays an important part as a head of jury at for one of the categories at the prestigious International Indian Film Festival of India or IFFI also revealed how he had to cut his travel plans due to Covid restrictions and fear of catching the bug at his age, he said “ In this one year I traveled only for one day to goa for IFFI as there was pressure on me to come but my family didn’t want me to travel in this situation. I still went for the festival with mask, shield and gloves. Luckily nothing happened but now with this dose that fear has gone. I would ask my sons close friends parents who are elderly like me whom I will ask to come and take the vaccine. I will ask David Dhawan, my friend, to come and take a jab immediately . I will call up all the people whom I can and ask them to take this vaccine”

Now we hope Rawail inspires more seniors from-town to come and take the jab in days to come.
