Actor Siddhant Chaturvedi of films like 'Gully Boy', 'Gahraiyan', 'Phone Bhoot' considers his father as his support. He says, 'Papa has a huge contribution in my career. Even the seed of acting was sown in me because of him. Papa is fond of films. He used to show films every Friday, so my love for films was born from there. Not only this, when I decided to leave CA studies in the final year and become an actor, even then Papa supported me completely. During my struggle period, when I used to get disappointed due to not getting work, even then Papa always encouraged me. To be honest, Papa had more faith in me than I had in him. At that time people used to taunt him a lot, they also made fun of him that his son has left CA final and has set out to become a hero, so I am most grateful to my father that he always held my hand.'

Whatever work you do, feel happy in it, so I cancelled my studies in London and took the path of films. Papa still teaches me to work happily. If you are happy, it will also show on your face.'
