Gully Boy: Farhan Akhtar & Ritesh Sidhwani Introduce Siddhant Chaturvedi
Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s next flick Gully Boy has been creating buzz ever since the announcement. The film which stars Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in the lead has a new member in the cast.
Siddhant Chaturvedi was actually introduced in Excel Entertainment’s first ever web series Inside Edge and is making his Bollywood debut with Gully Boy.
Owing to Siddhant’s exceptional performance in Inside Edge, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani are now introducing Siddhanth Chaturvedi to Bollywood and to the big screen - Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy.
Zoya termed the new trend of content-driven films doing better than big starrers a very positive change.
“Audience’s taste is changing. It means we have wider scope to make films on different stories and themes. Plus new actors also get an opportunity to work in those films. I feel there is no harm in it.”
Would the new phenomenon diminish importance of stars, Zoya said: “No. I don’t think that way. Audience still come to watch movies when you have big actor.
Great! It was Zoya's and Farhan's father, legendary writer and talented poet that started the trend of good content and effective storytelling and its great that she's carrying the legacy ahead! Cheers to meaningful cinema!
