    Actor Ranveer Singh has been ruling social media ever since his rapper avatar made it to Indian theatres through 'Gully Boy'. Not only in India, the actor gathered some fans overseas, one of them being wrestler-turned-actor John Cena. The 41-year-old took to his official Instagram account to share a cover of Singh's popular song, 'Apna Time Aayega', from the Zoya Akhtar film.

    Cena's shout-out to the 'Simmba' actor's movie took the internet by storm with several fans reacting to it in strange ways. While some appeared confused at Cena's post, others were chuffed at the WWE champ's praise for Singh.

    "My time is now, john Cena Aapna time ayeaga" one of the fans commented.

    "Yessssssss...My Time is Nowwwwww" said another.

    However, this isn't the first time that the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion shared pictures of Bollywood icons on Instagram. Earlier, he shared pictures of comedian Kapil Sharma, singer Daler Mehndi, actor Aamir Khan, and had even quoted Shah Rukh Khan on both Twitter and Instagram.

    Based on Mumbai's underground rap scene, 'Gully Boy' tells the story of Murad (Singh), a young boy living in the slums of Mumbai who aspires to make it big in the music world. The movie also stars Alia Bhatt and Siddhant Chaturvedi in pivotal roles.

On his 33rd birthday, we revisit some typical, 'Befikre' Ranveer-kinda fashion moments that only he could pull off with élan.
