‘Gully Boy’ debutant Siddhant Chaturvedi reveals how Zoya Akhtar discovered him
If Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt are the heart and soul of ‘Gully Boy’, then debutant Siddhant Chaturvedi is the backbone of it. In this ‘rage to rich’ story director, Zoya Akhtar brought the best out of every character and we must say that Siddhant stands out with his role of MC Sher, the idol of Murad (Ranveer Singh) . The young actor recently revealed how he was discovered by Zoya.
In an interview to Firstpost, Siddhant said, “The film had already started. They were casting for the film, I didn’t know anything about it.” He further added that Zoya saw him dancing at the success party of ‘Inside Edge’ and she asked him, “Who are you?” When he said his name, Zoya asked him if he had auditioned for ‘Gully Boy’. When Siddhant replied he hadn’t, then she called him for an audition the very next day. He was then asked to check the music of Divine and Naezy and to memorise a rap song for the audition.
While listening to their raps, Siddhant could relate to the struggles of Divine and Naezy. “I had my own struggle,” he said. Inspired by them he wrote his own personal rap.
Later he got a call from Zoya saying that she loved his audition and will send the script of the film. And that’s how Siddhant was discovered by the filmmaker.
Siddhant has proved his mettle in ‘Gully Boy’ and we would love to see him in more movies in the future.
