The concert featuring Naezy, whose real name is Naved Shaikh, will happen in collaboration with Bombay Circus. "It's a truly unique collaboration between Bombay Circus and me. It's going to be a total riot or -- as I like to say, 'Aafat!'. It's been a long journey for the Indian hip-hop scene and now the world can see how far we have come," he said, promising a perfect fusion of circus ambiance and stirring rap music.
Naezy, along with rapper Divine, was the inspiration behind Zoya Akhtar's acclaim film "Gully Boy", starring Ranveer with Alia Bhatt. The film's success opened audience interest for rap in India in a big way, and has also made Indians all over the world take notice of Indian rappers.
