He raps about a making it big and having a better tomorrow. 'Apna Time Ayega' is laden with Mumbaiyya slang and set to a catchy tune composed by Divine and Dub Sharma.
The song also borrows from Divine's latest release 'Teesri Manzil.' 'Tu nanga his toh aaya hai, kya ghanta le kar jaayega?' (You were born with nothing, what will you take back when you die?) Ranveer belts out the lyrics and excites the crowd in a nightclub.

The narrative revolves around street rappers of India and their rise. The film, which also stars Kalki Koechlin, will premiere at the 2019 Berlin International Film Festival.
