Who Is MC Sher? Meet Siddhant Chaturvedi, Feisty Debutant From Gully Boy

(Last Updated On: March 26, 2019)

Was Gully Boy only about Ranveer Singh? Certainly not as there is someone else too who has swept the audience off their feet.

MC Sher, the rapper who plays a pivotal role in making the rapper out of a meek poetry-writing, college boy, had also left a lasting impression on the audience other than Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt.  It was him who introduced rapping to Murad and re-christened him as Gully Boy. As we left the hall, we were not only mindblown away by Ranveer’s intensity and Alia Bhatt’s feistiness or by the overall magic, but were also wondering who was that MC Sher after all.

Well, meet Siddhant Chaturvedi, who had given an amazing break out debut in Gully Boy. Be it dominating the screen space and snatching our attention, this young actor has managed to leave the audience fascinated with his to the point Bombaiyya slang and amazing rapping skills.

But who is this Siddhant Chaturvedi? Have you seen him before? Well, the answer is yes. Do you remember the elder mischievous yet doting elder brother in Coca Cola commercial?

Here is what we know.

This 25-year-old actor reportedly hails from Baliya, Uttar Pradesh. At the age of 5, his family shifted to Mumbai.

Like his father, Siddhant said to have started pursuing accountancy and almost became a Chartered Accountant when modeling came calling.

After winning a talent contest organized by Bombay Times, the actor decided to devote more time and attention to the performing arts instead.


Before becoming a hardcore rapper for Gully Boy, Siddhant played the role of a young working professional in Luv Ranjan’s web series “Life Sahi Hai.”

Later, he was also seen in Amazon Prime’s Inside Edge, starring Vivek Oberoi.

In fact, Zoya Akhtar is said to have spotted the actor at a success party of Inside Edge. In his own words as told to First Post:

“The film had already started. They were casting for the film, I didn’t know anything about it when Zoya spotted me dancing at the success party of Inside Edge.”

Zoya reportedly asked him to audition for Gully Boy and come prepared with one of Divine and Naezy’s rap. When Siddhant could not memorize any of the rap, he decided to stay up all night and write his own, personal rap song based on his own struggle and gave the audition. Listen to him here narrate the incident.

And that’s how this star was born!
