Siddhant Chaturvedi, who aced the role of underground rapper MC Sher in Gully Boy, now selects his scripts very carefully while on the personal front, spends his time with family and friends as he awaits for the perfect script to appear.
The actor opened up as he shares, “It comes very naturally. I am not lying. I don’t feel like I’ve worked hard, it just comes from within. Even when I was studying, I would feel like this is something I don’t want to do, I don’t want to study right now, it’s too frustrating. But then I would feel like I have to reach there, I have to complete my studies and I have to go into acting.
“So, I have to complete this. This is like a hurdle that I have to jump and I have to work harder. So that was work. But other than that, the other things I used to do in the free time that I used to get, that was my escape. The dancing, martial arts, theatre or reading my lines and writing, all of that comes naturally to me.”
With huge popularity amongst the youth and especially the girls the actor spoke, “Well, my parents are very happy right now. They were very happy back then too because I have always been a good son. Now they taunt me, ‘Arrey you won’t pick up your t-shirt now, we’ll have to do it because you are a star’ and all that. But my life at home is very normal.
“We have a two-hour session every morning with tea. My brother is in school. Today, in fact, I was asking him whom are you crushing on or who is crushing on you, and he got annoyed and said that ‘nobody is crushing on me, my friends are crushing on you.’ So, he is already annoyed”
Gaining popularity with Gully Boy, Siddhant Chaturvedi had also proven his talent in Excel Entertainment’s Inside Edge and soon, the actor will be returning to the franchise with Inside Edge 2.
