Actor Siddhant Chaturvedi he recalled how emotional he was in the presence of Salman Khan after the star praised his performance in Gully Boy. Gully Boy, who was chosen as India’s official entry into the 2019 Oscars, portrayed Siddhanta as a street rapper named MC Sher; she became his breakthrough role.
In a social media star show with Janice Siddhant, he revealed that when he went to promote his recent film Bunty Aur Babli 2 on Bigg Boss, he cried because it hit him that he did it. “Chief toh ro diya tha national television pe (I cried on national television when I first met Salman),” he said when his co-host, rapper Raftaar, talked about how you sometimes don’t realize how far you are. I came until it hit you.
“On Bigg Boss, when I first went to Bunty Babli’s promotion, I saw him and I just collapsed,” Siddhant continued, adding, “Woh tareef kar rahe they.” Unhone Gully Boy dekhi thi, tab ki tareef kar rahe they, ke ‘acha kaam kar raha hai (He praised me, he said I did well in Gully Boy)’. ”Siddhant tried to imitate Salman as he recalled the story.
Siddhant also recalled being greeted by people from his village of Ballia in Uttar Pradesh after first tasting the success with Gully Boy. “Chief gaon gaya, sign up for teens not pehchana, maala-waala le ke aagaye.” Wahan ke liye bahut badi baat hai. Tab laga ke kuch jeewan mein kiya hai (When I went to my village, a few people came and crowned me. It was a big problem for them to achieve one of their own successes. I felt that I had achieved something). “
Bunty Aur Babli 2, starring Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukerji and Sharwari Wagh, was released in November. It debuted on Amazon Prime Video a month later.
