Gully boy fame Siddhant Chaturvedi signs two new films, an action thriller and a comedy
The actor also revealed that he will collaborate again with Excel Entertainment, who launched him in Gully Boy
Siddhant Chaturvedi, who made a debut in Ranveer Singh's Gully Boy, will be next seen in an action film, followed by a comedy.
Siddhant also revealed that he will collaborate again with Excel Entertainment, who launched him in Gully Boy, for a film.
"I have two films in hand. One is an action film, (where I will be) trained in taekwondo. Another one is a proper comedy film," the actor said.
"I have committed to a project with Excel. But it's not my next film. The film with them will be a biggie, in which I will be playing the lead," Siddhant added.
Speculations were also rife about director Zoya Akhtar planning a prequel for Siddhant's character MC Sher in Gully Boy. But the actor dismissed the rumours as false and said he would not like to cash in on the popularity of the role.
"I would rather not touch it, as it's too scary. I don't want to cash in on that character, I want to move on. If I had to repeat myself I would have done a 9 am to 5 pm job," he said.
"Zoya Akhtar is interested in making a sequel to Gully Boy, maybe something on the Delhi chapter. There is a huge pop scene in Delhi as well so she may do a part two," he added.
Siddhant said he wants to prove himself as lead and is carefully choosing scripts.
"I am not related to anyone in the film industry and I can't afford to miss the flight. I am an outsider, there is nepotism and other things also happen. I am taking time to read scripts. I happen to read at least three to four scripts a week.
"I want to prove myself in a lead role and that script has to be bang on, so I take time to choose the right one. I believe every film is your first film. I haven't done much, I am yet to prove myself," he said.
