After his business management studies, Siddhart landed the role of assistant director to the legendary Mani Ratnam in the film, "Kannathil Muthamittal". He was quoted to have said "I met Mani Ratnam for an interview and landed my first job in cinema. I am proud to be associated with a film as special as Kannathil Muthamittal. I saw and learnt the science of filmmaking from very close quarters".

Then, he is debuted as an actor in Tamil film title with the "Boys", about a group of boys venture into the music industry as a band. Its opening was phenomenal – the biggest in 2003, however as critics panned the dialogues (so-called explicit references), the film dwindled in success. However musically it was an astounding success and once dubbed in Telugu and released in Andra Pradesh, the film became a hit and recovered all of its losses. He won Newcomer Actor Award at International Tamil Film Award ITFA 2003.

Siddhart then appeared in another Tamil film, "Ayutha Ezhuthu" (2004) under Mani Ratnam's direction. After this film, he shift focus and concentrate on Telugu language Projects. His first direct Telugu project, "Nuvvostanate Nenoddantana" opposite Trisha Krishnan released in early 2005. The comedy-drama film, marking the directorial debut of choreographer-turned-actor Prabhu Deva, became a commercial blockbuster as well as a critical success, with Siddharth winning his first Filmfare Best Actor Award for his portrayal of Santhosh, a playful NRI, who fights for his love.

Siddhart also venture into the singing and writing as he wrote the screenplay for his next Telugu film, "Chukkallo Chandrudu" (2006) directed by Siva Kumar and sang as playback singer. This was also the year Siddhart debuted in Bollywood as a part of the critically acclaimed blockbuster "Rang De Basanti" which is also starred Aamir Khan. Siddharth received the Star Screen Debut Award for his role as Karan Singhania in the film. The film was sent as an Oscar's bid as well. Siddharth's final release of 2006 was "Bommarilu" directed by then newcomer, Bhaskar.  The film, revolving around a father-son relationship, received critical acclaim and garnered box office success, too. He worked with director Vishal Bhardwaj and Oscar winning cinematographer Guillermo Navarro on a short film titled "Blood Brother"  which screened at the Toronto International Film Festival.

After the above average grossing "Aata" in 2007, Siddharth took a sabbatical and did not have a release for 20 months. In 2009, his "Konchem Ishtam Konchem Kashtam" opposite Tamanna received good response from the critics and the audiences. Siddharth played the lead role in debutant director Anand Ranga's "Oy!" which achieved box office success despite mixed reviews. His second Bollywood venture, and first release of 2010, "Striker", portrayed the life of a carom player and became the first Bollywood film to be released in theatres and on YouTube on the same day. His second release of 2010 was the Telugu language "Baava", village-based romantic family entertainer, shot in places like Palakollu, Razole, Rajahmundry and Hyderabad. His first release of 2011, Prakash Kovelmundi's fantasy epic "Anaganaga O Dheerudu" opposite Shruti Hassan,  was produced by veteran K. Raghavendra Rao.

Then he enrolled in bilingual film named as "180 No Rules" or "Nootrenbathu" under the direction of his mentor Jayendra. He is acts along side Priya Anand and Nithya Menon. Currently, he is filming Telugu movie, Oh, My Friend.

Siddharth and Amala team up!

  IndiaGlitz [Tuesday, August 30, 2011]

 

 

Kollywood grapevine has it that the new pair in tinsel town is chocolate boy Siddharth and Tamil cinema's new sensation, Amala Paul! The duo will be seen together in a new film titled 'Kadhalil Sodhapuvathu Eppadi'.

It is said that this project will be directed by Balaji and have music tuned in by Thaman, while Y Not Studios will produce the film. Cinematography is said to be done by Nirav Shah.
However, an official announcement hasn't been made yet and it maybe mentioned that Amala Paul is currently busy with a Telugu project, due to which she opted out of Aishwarya Dhanush's biggie, '3'. Siddharth, on the other hand has tweeted that he has started work on a project with Y Not Studios.

Siddharth started his second innings in Tamil cinema through '180', looks like the actor is back on track again!

 ...

 

No Malayalam films for Siddharth just yet!

[cinecurry.com]

 

Actor Siddharth's kitty is too full. With films in five languages and his Tamil-Telugu bilingual getting ready for release Siddharth seems to be having problems managing his dates. So his debut in Malayalam that was supposed to get finalised shortly will not happen this year. Siddharth moved to Tollywood after making his debut through Shankar's Boys in Tamil. After becoming a popular actor In Telugu he will be making a comeback to Kollywood through 180. "I hope the film will open up opportunities for me to act in Tamil," said Siddharth during the audio launch of 180.

Siddharth feels sorry for not able to make it in Malluwood. I will take it up next year, says his Twitter update.
