Siddhant Chaturvedi tasted overnight success with his role as MC Sher in Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy. It was his first Bollywood project and things worked out in favour of the debutante. Before featuring in Gully Boy with Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, Siddhant was a part of the cast of the web series Inside Edge. The young lad hit the bullseye with his debut film and the rest they say is history. Post the massive success of the Zoya Akhtar directorial, Siddhant became the Hindi voice of Chris Hemsworth in Men In Black: International. The 26-year-old met Chris during a press tour of his film in Bali. Siddhant interviewed Chris and made him say 'bohot hard' too.
After impressing the masses with his two projects, Siddhant is now all set to begin working on other movies which he has on his platter. Spilling beans about the same, Siddhant recently informed PTI, "I have two films in my hand. One is an action film, where I will be trained in Taekwondo. Another one is a proper comedy film." Apart from these two films, we hear that Siddhant Chaturvedi was in talks for Karan Johar's Dostana 2. Yes, you read that right!
According to a reliable source close to BollywoodLife, the fresh face of Bollywood was offered the second male lead's part in the sequel to Priyanka Chopra-Abhishek Bachchan-John Abraham starrer Dostana. One of the reasons why Siddhant didn't seal the deal is because the actor is apparently not open to doing two-hero films.
For the ones who aren't aware, today Karan Johar officially announced that Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety actor Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor are a part of Dostana 2 while the second male lead's name is yet to be announced. Since Siddhant couldn't come aboard for the part, the makers have now roped in a new face who will make his debut with Dostana 2. The name of the debutante is still under the wraps but we hope the cat will be out of the bag very soon.
Apart from Siddhant, rumour mills were abuzz with Rajkummar Rao starring in the sequel to the 2008 film along with Kartik and Janhvi. The actor was also confirmed for the part but reportedly he couldn't sign the dotted line because of his dates. Destiny had some other plans, it seems!
