NY se Mumbai is the end credit song for Gully Boy, starring Ranveer and Alia Bhatt. Nas is an executive producer for the forthcoming film.
Wayno said: “Working on NY se Mumbai, for me, was an affirmation of my understanding that hip-hop has a global reach, and cultures around the world are more similar than they are different.”
