The huge success of Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy (2019) launched Siddhant Chaturvedi into the stratosphere. Despite the presence of established actors Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, Chaturvedi managed to stand his ground and delivered a highly convincing and commendable performance in his debut offering.

After the resounding success of Gully Boy, the newcomer has been flooded with offers. He currently has a couple of exciting projects on his platter including Yash Raj Films’ Bunty Aur Babli 2 and a Dharma Productions’ untitled film with Shakun Batra of Kapoor & Sons (2016) fame.

Just like the rest of us, Siddhant Chaturvedi is also waiting for the Coronavirus pandemic to end as soon as possible so that people can get back to work again. Talking about how the lockdown will impact the entertainment industry, he tells a publication, “I think we are going to be back with a lot more content, and better films. As we are all in the creative field, this time will only get us more eager to put together some great films.”

In these trying times, Chaturvedi is worried about the lives of thousands of daily wagers. “I am only concerned about the daily wagers, and we’re contributing towards the fund as much as possible,” he says.
