Siddhant Chaturvedi opens up on his struggling days, says “Tapri se YRF Cafeteria tak”

In an interview with News18, Siddhant Chaturvedi revealed standing outside of the Yash Raj Films studio, waiting at a chai stall during his college days.

Siddhant Chaturvedi quickly became famous after his amazing performance as MC Sher in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy. And now, with a slate of films to look forward to, the actor appears to be fulfilling his Bollywood aspirations to the utmost. Siddhant will soon be featured in Varun Sharma’s Bunty Aur Babli 2 opposite Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukerji, and Sharvari, wearing the hat of a conman. The audience is looking forward to seeing Siddhant in a variety of roles as a conman in the Yash Raj Films movie.

The actor seems to have a much deeper connection with Yash Raj Films. Revealed during an interview with News18, the actor opened up about waiting at a ‘chai tapri’ outside the studios during his college days as he hoped 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 said, ‘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 ready to be released on November 19.

Siddhant came to Instagram last year to post a ‘Flashback to Dreams’ with his followers on the photo-blogging site. The young actor may be seen sipping tea at a stand in the photo uploaded by Siddhant. He captioned, “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”.
