Ranveer Singh’s rap from Gully Boy, Apna Time Aaega, seems to have inspired people and the government alike. Railway minister Piyush Goyal tweeted a video inspired by the song that tells people to buy tickets, Ranveer Singh style.
The song titled ‘Tera Time Aayega’ warns people about travelling without tickets. In sync with the tune of the original, the new video warns people against travelling without a valid ticket. It also highlights the ‘shaana’ (Marathi for clever) ticket collectors. Originally shared by Western Railway, it was later tweeted by Goyal too.
Ranveer plays a street rapper in the film directed by Zoya Akhtar. Apna Time Aayega is one of the songs from the movie that has become extremely popular. Written by rapper Divine & Ankur Tewari, the song has been sung by Ranveer.
A special message for some of our fellow passengers who travel in local trains without a ticket. Western Railway requests you to travel with an appropriate ticket, as travelling without a ticket is not only a punishable offence but is also a social crime. #TeraTimeAayega pic.twitter.com/Za1gBF6Kzu— Western Railway (@WesternRly) February 15, 2019
