Siddhant Chaturvedi aka MC Sher is riding high on the success of his recent release, Gully Boy. While Ranveer Singh was the male lead in the move, Siddhant equally captured the hearts of many and often gets addressed by the name of his character MC Sher. But Siddhant says his father is the real MC Sher. He spoke to Humans of Bombay, a Facebook page about his journey to stardom and how his dad remained a constant support figure throughout. From heartbreak, passion, struggle, dreams, he spoke about a number of things that led him to the becoming of MC Sher.
He used to dance to Salman Khan songs and even had the 'COOL' necklace that Shahrukh wore. His father was fond of cinema and he grew inclined to the artform. Siddhant also opened up about being rejected during auditions how his dad inspired him to keep pursuing his dreams. He said, "He had my back, he told me that I should always chase my dreams, and he will give me food and a roof so that I could do what I wanted. He gave me the freedom to decide. To dream."
