Thanks to subtitles, I laughed; cried and had goosebumps @RanveerOfficial@aliaa08@kalkikanmani— Jonty Rhodes (@JontyRhodes8) January 17, 2020
Gully Boy actor Siddhant Chaturvedi replied to Jonty Rhodes' post thanking the cricketer's admiration and praise towards the film. Jonty Rhodes, in response, called for Siddhant's "appearance" now that he is in India to coach IPL Team Kings XI Punjab for the upcoming Indian Premiere League that will be held in March this year. Siddhant was critically acclaimed for portraying the role of a feisty street rapper MC Sher in Gully Boy.
Here's what Jonty Rhodes retweeted:
Last year, Siddhant Chaturvedi met Jonty Rhodes at an event in Mumbai. The actor had a "fan moment" with the former cricketer and shared some pictures with Jonty Rhodes. He jokingly wrote: "Meri achhi fielding ka raaz (The secret behind my good fielding)."
Here's Siddhant Chaturvedi's "fan moment" tweet:
Gully Boy is based on the lives of street rappers in Mumbai. It features Ranveer Singh as a gully rapper, who rises to fame after a lot of struggles. Alia Bhatt plays the role of his girlfriend, while Kalki Koechlin is a friend of Ranveer Singh. Meanwhile, Siddhant Chaturvedi's MC Sher is a mentor to the gully rapper. Gully Boy was chosen for India's official entry to Oscars 2020. However, the film ran out of the 92nd Academy Awards race and didn't make the cut in top 10 movies for the best International Feature Film's list.
