"I am very happy, very proud that Gully Boy is releasing in Japan. I have never been to Japan but only learnt, heard and seen the most wonderful things about the land of the rising sun. I hope to come there someday," the actor said in a statement.

Ranveer said the film's release in Japan is a proud moment for everyone who worked on Gully Boy.

"... Our film has travelled to the vast nation of Japan and we hope that you all see it and you all like it," he added.

The film, which had its world premiere at the 2019 Berlin Film Festival, featured Ranveer as an up-and-coming rapper who sets out to achieve his dream by rhyming about his life on the Mumbai streets.
