Will There Be a Gully Boy and MC Sher Sequel?
Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ranveer Singh in Gully Boy

For a  few days  now  the  more  imaginative  sections  of  the  media have been  harping on  the  return  of  the favourite Gully Boy character M C Sher in a sequel to Zoya Akhtar’s hit film. The actor recently also became brand ambassador to an automobile brand.

It would be recalled that debutant actor Siddhant Chaturvedi became  an  overnight sensation after  the  release  of Gully Boy. Siddhanth Chaturvedi's character 'MC Sher' was loved by audiences in the film as he played a young rapper with swag who becomes a mentor to Ranveer Singh's character, Murad. Such was the level of appreciation that Siddhant got that Big B, Amitabh Bachchan himself, had sent out one of his handwritten notes to Siddhant after he watched Gully Boy. Some  critics went as far as to say he was  better in the film than Ranveer Singh. It therefore made sense for the Gully Boy helmers to construct another film that revolved around Siddhant’s character M C Sher. Zoya Akhtar had spotted him dancing and had asked Siddhant to audition. The rest is history.

Sadly the news is as fake and untrue as many of  the sensational headlines that we encounter  on the  entertainment  portals  these days.

When I contacted Siddhant he denied any plans of a  movie based on his  character in Gully Boy.

Said Siddhant about the supposed film, “Not really happening. I would want it to happen, though.”

Siddhant says he’s looking at  projects closely and has locked in a few. There will be announcements  from this  talented young actor soon. But nothing connected to Gully Boy.
