Siddharth Malhotra stepped into the spotlight with his debut in Karan Johar’s latest directorial venture, Student of the Year. Playing the lead alongside debutants Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt, this model-turned-actor wowed crowds with his fantastic first-time performance. As with every successful actor who manages to make his mark on the big-screen, Siddharth too has turned into a sought-after B-town member and has already signed his next! The upcoming film, titled Hasee Toh Phasee, will be a joint production by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Anurag Kashyap’s production house, Phantom Productions.
“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!” said Siddharth. The film will be directed by Vinil Mathew, an ad-film maker who has previous worked with Karan Johar on the television commercial of a popular coffee brand. Siddharth will star alongside Parineeti Chopra in this film.
“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,” added Siddharth.
There has been no mention of the release date of Hasee Toh Phasee. Siddharth is expected to leave audiences asking for more once again with this film!
