In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, Siddhant Chaturvedi was questioned about the support he received from the industry when some of his films failed to resonate with the audience. In response, the actor revealed that he maintained professional expectations rather than personal ones from the industry.

He shared an instance where Ranbir Kapoor invited him over to simply hang out, as Ranbir doesn't party frequently. During their conversation, when Siddhant expressed his uncertainties, Ranbir offered valuable advice, encouraging him to focus on his work without being distracted by others' activities. The actor recalled Ranbir saying to him: “No, keep working, don’t (get) agitated about other people doing 100 other things or being seen.”


Highlighting the support he received from Ranbir as well as his Gully Boy co-star Alia Bhatt, Siddhant disclosed, "Ranbir and Alia are the only two people who had sent me a long message after Gehraiyaan," emphasizing the kindness he received from them.
