1. CA in making
Many don’t know but Siddhant studied to become a Charted Accountant (CA) like his father and also cleared his exam. Later, he followed his heart for the love of acting.
2. Faced rejections
Remember his nerve-hitting dialogue, “Jahan se inke sapne shuru hote hai, wahan humare khatam hote hai”? He certainly faced lots of rejection at the beginning of his career. It took him a 6-year-long struggle to make it big in the industry. But his never-giving-up attitude helped him to overcome those rejections.
3. A beauty pageant winner
In 2012, he participated in the Clean and Clear 'Bombay Times Fresh Face' 2012 and emerged as its winner. And, he also won Clean and Clear 'The Times of India Fresh Face 2013'. Quite an achiever, we must say!
4. A commercial star
He has named several big commercials to his credit before debuting in Bollywood.
5. A sitcom actor
Chaturvedi is a big Bollywood star today but do you know back in 2016 he appeared in a coming-of-age sitcom, Life Sahi Hai? Its first season was aired on YouTube while the second got released on Zee 5. He was also part of the show Inside Edge.
6. Chance Pe Dance
During the Inside Edge success party, he asked Dil Dhadakne Do director Zoya Akhar to dance to the song Gallan Goodiyaan from the film to get her attention and thought this is the best way to do it.
7. Gully Boy happened
He was discovered by director Zoya Akhtar for the 2019 film, which stars Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt. He auditioned for it, wrote his own rap song to prove his mettle during the selection process, and one day, received a life-changing call as he got selected for the role of MC Sher.
8. Became a Yash Raj hero
With his hard work and efforts, he became a part of the YRF family. His second movie was Bunty Aur Babli 2, which made him a commercial actor.
9. A rapper in real life
Not just he only played the role of a rapper in his first movie Gully Boy, but he is actually a rapper in real life as well. He also writes beautiful poems.
10. Multi-talented artist
