The film is based on the lives of rappers Naved Shaikh, popularly known as Naezy, and Divine (Vivian Fernandes), although many have noted stylistic and narrative likeness with the Hollywood biopic, "Straight Outta Comption"

In "Gully Boy", Ranveer's character used rap as a tool to express his views on society and life in Dharavi, one of the largest slums of Asia. The film became a superhit on release in February.

Expressing his joy over the selection, Ranveer had earlier said: "We are so thrilled that 'Gully Boy' has been selected as India's official entry to the 92nd Academy Awards in the Best International Feature Film category."
