After garnering overwhelming response for his debut performance in Excel Entertainment’s Gully Boy (2019), which also starred Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in lead roles, Siddhant Chaturvedi became the latest toast of the town. The young actor has been offered many movies after the release of Gully Boy, but he seems in no hurry to sign projects left, right and centre.

But the latest we hear that the breakout star has finally bagged his next Bollywood outing. Buzz has it that Siddhant Chaturvedi could be seen in a sequel to Yash Raj Films’ much-loved movie, Bunty Aur Babli (2005), which originally starred Abhishek Bachchan, Rani Mukerji and Amitabh Bachchan in important roles.

Reportedly, Amitabh Bachchan will also be a part of the sequel and Siddhant will share the screen space with the thespian for the first time. The actor has apparently already given his verbal nod to the sequel. We also hear that he has been welcomed by Bachchan to the cast. Reportedly, Big B was quite impressed by the young actor’s performance in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy.

Rumours were also doing the rounds lately that Rani Mukerji and Abhishek Bachchan, who played the lead pair in Bunty Aur Babli and received brilliant response for their performance, had also agreed to come on board for the second instalment of the franchise but the official confirmation is yet to come.
