Zoya Akhtar's 'Gully Boy' has gone on to become a massive hit with the critics and the masses. Alia Bhatt has yet again managed to impress everyone and Ranveer Singh continues to be the best in the industry. However, the biggest hit of the entire cast was the brilliant performance of Siddhant Chaturvedi AKA MC Sher, who made his Bollywood debut with the film. Chaturvedi plays a cool rapper with the warmest soul in the movie, who mentors Singh.

In an recent interview, Siddhant talked about working with Ranveer, and the biggest compliment he received. β€œIt was Deepika (Padukone) who said, 'Oh! He is just a boy. He is so cute'. People were expecting someone huge. You know like someone around 28. When people saw me in real they were quite astonished. They were like 'Oh he is just 25! He is so cute'. So I think that was a compliment, When people are surprised by your onscreen self and then they see you off screen, that is actually a compliment. Also, They thought I am a real rapper,” Chaturvedi said.

When asked if he had an MC Sher in his life, he said, β€œI don't have one MC Sher, I have lots of MC Shers in my life. My dad is my MC Sher, there is Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, and Zoya Akhtar was my sherni. And last but not the least, Ranveer Singh.”
