Siddhant Chaturvedi, who shot to fame after starring in Gully Boy, shared a throwback video on Thursday, remembering late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who died in June. In his post, Siddhant revealed that when he was in college, he won a National Talent Hunt in 2012, which sort of marked the beginning of his career as an actor. What also made it a milestone moment is that Siddhant got to celebrate his big win with Sushant Singh Rajput, who was a special guest along with actress Jacqueline Fernandez, at the event. In Siddhant's throwback video, he can be seen dancing his heart out along with Sushant Singh Rajput - the duo set the stage on fire, grooving to Chikni Chameli.
Here's the emotional note Siddhant attached to his video: "Jeeta main, nache hum dono... mera confidence uske baad ufff! Us raat soye nahi main aur mera parivaar... mera naam goonja stage pe, wo bhi Sushant Singh Rajput ki awaaz mein! wah! Mummy Papa ko laga ki kuch toh baat hogi mujh mein bhi... CA chhoro beta, hero bante hain! Permission mil gai (I was the winner but both of us danced. Me and my family didn't sleep all night that day. My name was announced on stage and that too in the voice of Sushant Singh Rajput. My parents thought there must be something in me... let your CA course be, let's be a hero. I got permission)."
