Siddharth Malhotra on experimenting with various kind of roles!
Sidharth Malhotra has completed five years in the industry. And it’s been quite a ride for him. From huge successes like Student of the Year and Ek Villain to box-office failures like Baar Baar Dekho and A Gentleman, he has seen the best and worst of the business.
The rollercoaster ride, however, hasn’t deterred him from making some out-of-the-box choices quite early in his career. Here, he talks about his journey so far and making some brave moves.
His answer to his brave moves was, " I think the stories have also changed because the audience has a demand for them. Today, real stories are being considered in the mainstream in a commercial way. If you look at Aiyaary, it’s my most real film in that sense. We haven’t taken any sets, they are all real locations. We have shown what they are likely to do, how they would behave. We are playing real-life spies, rather than the James Bond kind of characters. It’s a good range that I am playing larger than life. Doing it with a director like Neeraj Pandey, that has done so well in this zone, is a great opportunity."
Thus he expressed that he was satisfied with these movies. "Yes, definitely. That’s why I have been making these choices. I had an instinct about this film (Ittefaq) and this character, I knew that it would be interesting to find out that I am the killer in the end. People appreciate it and pinpoint certain scenes or enjoy the climax. That is definitely satisfying for a performer, especially a young actor like me. And especially, when I am doing something risky and am not playing the typical hero. When you get phone calls, messages or those kind of reviews, it’s very satisfying. That’s what we came into the business for."
