One actor who has managed to win over several hearts with his acting chops after Ranveer Singh in Gully Boy is Siddhant Chaturvedi. After building a separate fan base in social media and among the film critics, the actor has now found a fan in Bollywood's superstar Amitabh Bachchan.
Siddhant who played Ranveer’s mentor MC Sher in the film has received a handwritten letter of appreciation and a flower bouquet for his role in Gully Boy from Amitabh Bachchan.
A joyous Siddhant also took to Twitter to share some photos with the note and flowers and wrote in chaste Hindi that translates as, "Mr Bachchan, receiving your gift and blessings was unimaginable for me. I cannot express my happiness in words. This is a moment of pride for me, and now all, I want to do is touch your feet."
The Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer has been garnering rave reviews from critics and the audience alike. The film has already joined the Rs 100 crore club.
Born in the Ballia district of Uttar Pradesh, Siddhant Chaturvedi was first seen in a web series, Life Sahi Hai by Luv Ranjan and Inside Edge. He studied to become a chartered accountant winning a talent contest made him turn career towards the entertainment industry and he decided to devote himself to the performing arts instead.
