‘Tapri se YRF cafeteria tak’: Siddhant Chaturvedi reveals waiting at chai stall outside Yash Raj Films Studios
Siddhant Chaturvedi became an audience favorite overnight with his act as a likable rapper MC Sher in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy. And now, the actor seems to be living his Bollywood dreams to the fullest, with a lineup of films worth taking note of. Siddhant will soon be seen donning the hat of a conman in Varun Sharma’s Bunty Aur Babli 2 alongside Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukerji, and Sharvari. The audience is excited to watch Siddhant in many different avatars as a conman in the Yash Raj Films production. But, do you know that the actor has a much older connection with YRF studios?
In a recent chat with News18, Siddhant revealed that he has an old connection with YRF studios. The actor opened up about waiting at a ‘chai tapri’ outside the studios during his college days, hoping to be invited in as an actor in one of its films one day. Siddhant said, “I have a very long relation with YRF studios. During my college days, a lot of my friends used to come to the studio for auditions or internships so if I ever accompanied them, I always waited outside at a chai tapri and just had chai."
Siddhant further added, “No matter how much my friends asked me to go in, I never went in because I had this dream to be invited inside by Aditya Chopra sir. Even though it seemed like a far-fetched dream that time, I had decided that it was the only way I was going to go in there if I ever did. And when Bunty Aur Babli 2 happened, it became one of the most special films for me because it made my dream come true.” Bunty Aur Babli 2 is all slated to release on November 19.
Last year, Siddhant took to his Instagram handle and shared a ‘Flashback to Dreams’ with his fans on the photo-blogging site. In the picture posted by Siddhant, one can see the young actor sipping tea at a stall. He had written, “Flashback to Dreams. Couple of years back, at a Tapri outside Yashraj, sipping on a cutting with. Dreams and Chai brewing around. To my friend- “Please take a picture, I’ll post it when I do a @yrf film.” Tapri se Yrf Cafeteria tak. #MyNotes | | #buntyaurbabli2 @buntyaurbabli2”.
