Ranveer Singh starring Gully Boy is all set for the release soon. Though, the trailer of the film was appreciated by many and even the song Apna Time Ayega was an instant hit. And today, makers released another number from the film Mere Gully Mein and it also became instant hit on the social media.

However, it seems like the makers of Gully Boy have been unfair to hip hop artiste Sajeel Kapoor a.k.a Sez On The Beats, who took to Twitter earlier today to reveal that while he is just as excited for the film as his contemporaries Naezy and Divine are, but the makers have not paid him and used his song in the movie, which is Mere Gully Mein.

“This is also the sad reality of how the industry works in this country, even after the original label many times, I have not been paid for this track despite having a contract and my publishing split being agreed and assigned,” excerpt from his tweet.

Talking about the movie Gully Boy it stars Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in lead role. The movie is directed by Zoya Aakhtar and it is slated to release February 14.
