With the success of his debut film, Student of the Year, alongside newcomers Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt, Siddharth Malhotra seems to have carved a place for himself in headlines. The actor has made news yet again with Karan Johar’s announcement of the upcoming film, Hasee Toh Phasee. “The title of the Dharma-Phantom film with @S1dharthM and @ParineetiChopra is Hasee toh Phasee!!!….#haseetohphasee (sic)” tweeted Karan Johar, announcing the film on the micro-blogging website, Twitter.
Speaking about his second big-screen appearance, Siddharth articulated, “Well, Anurag Kashyap had written a script. He is a cool guy. I’ve met him a couple of times and interestingly, Karan told me all about the adverts he had shot so far. Hasee Toh Phasee was an interesting read. I guess now the actual struggle begins! And look at this, the title of such kind after my first film (laughs). The title of the film came much later though.”
The 28-year-old actor who celebrated his birthday just recently, seems excited about the upcoming film and went on to add, “Everything is different about this film – its genre, the people I am working with, the actress, the world I’ll be living in, etc. The first film chooses you but today I am proud that I chose my second film. It’s a love story of a different kind. I won’t romance the same way, I can tell you that (laughs). We start shooting end of April.”
Hasee Toh Phasee is a joint production by Dharma Productions and Anurag Kashyap’s production house, Phantom. Also, this film will be directed by Vinil Mathew who has on previous account worked with Karan Johar on the ad film of a popular coffee brand.
