“English and Hindi rapper Ace aka Abhishek Dhusia was upset when he heard a film was being made about Mumbai’s hip-hop scene. “The first thing that came to my mind was, ‘This is my shit’,” said Dhusia, who co-founded the crew Mumbai’s Finest in 2006, of which Divine was a part of for six years. “There’s no one else who has struggled more than me. I’m the original gully boy. Then I came to know my brothers Naezy and Divine are involved, so I was happy. It would have been very corny if they had made a movie on Honey Singh’s life.”“ – Amit Gurbaxani ( Scroll.In)
