Check out what the actor has to say about him bagging the big role!
During a conversation with News18, Siddhant Chaturvedi was asked how he bagged the role in Bunty Aur Babli 2. Responding to this question, Siddhant said, “Adi sir (Aditya Chopra) had seen Gully Boy and I remember he called me and said, ‘Tu toh hero hai,’ and I told him, ‘Toh bana do hero.’ And that’s how I was offered the film and I heard the script and signed it. But somewhere I was a bit hesitant that they hadn’t seen my comic timing.”
Talking more about the film and Aditya Chopra, Siddhant Chaturvedi added, ” I have grown up watching Govinda sir, Salman (Khan) sir, Shah Rukh (Khan) sir, so I am a hardcore Bollywood fan. So I wrote a diary for this character, where I wrote about the character. I also recorded the voice with some background music. So I auditioned after signing the film as I really wanted to impress Adi sir. When I saw my preparation, he found it really amazing.”
Isn’t that just amazing?
