Playing Shiv in Balika Vadhu, the good looking actor has managed to steal many hearts. However, it was with his dance performances in Jhalak Dikhhlaa Jaa Season 6 he managed to impress not only his fans but also top names in the industry. It is during this dance show that famous film producer Karan Johar who was also one of the judges on the show felt that Siddharth had a personality which should be showcased in films. Thus followed the offer and Karan kept to his words when he offered Siddharth a three film deal with his production house Dharma Productions.
Siddharth who has started shooting for the first film under the banner is all excited about this new phase in his life but cannot speak much about it now, "It is too early to talk but yes, I have started shooting for the first film which should release in July. I don't think I got the role because of my dance but because of the show due to which I got introduced to Karan Johar. It was a surprise when I got a call from the casting guys after the show ended and I ended up getting a three film deal."
The actor who has a great body combined with good looks does not have to put in any extra efforts to get ready for films, "Since I am busy shooting for my show Balika Vadhu I really don't get time to put in extra efforts so I can say the extra efforts are bare minimum from my side. Even shooting for both, a daily show and a film can be hectic but thanks to the channel Colors who have been supportive all the way. When I got the offer I had a chat with them and they were very accommodating and understanding."
Ask him how does he feel shooting for a film and Siddharth says, "It is a very, very different feeling when you are shooting for a film. The way things happen and are done for a film is completely different from that for a TV show. They are more focused on a film set and everyone on the set knows there job."
As of now Siddharth says he will continue to be a part of the show, "I am with the show as of now but I don't know what will happen tomorrow nor do I know whether I will do more films later since I never plan in advance. I take each step as it comes since we never know how things move on forward."
Siddharth also seems to be controversy's favorite child. While some months back there was a rumor of him gone missing, last month there was a rumor about him seeing his co-star Smita Bansal! "What do I say? I normally ignore all these things since I find them to be stupid. I had an off for a day and decided to be on my own so they write that I had disappeared! And about the other rumor the less said the better... I don't know how people get so desperate for news trying to mislead people, linking actors with their co-actors and all. If they like to talk about me let them, I am here to work and even if they try to hold me back it will not work."
Siddharth's confidence also stems from the fact that his fans support him always, "Fans have always loved and supported me in all times and I am thankful for the same. I wish they always support me like this."
Well, we wish Siddharth all the very best in everything he does!
