After two serious Bollywood films – ‘Rang De Basanti’ and action drama ‘Striker’ – Siddharth is all set to show his romantic side in Hindi movies.
Siddarth said, “Yes, my next Hindi film will be a romantic film. Audiences in Mumbai haven’t seen what I do down south. After seeing my ads for a cellphone company, Hindi filmmakers have woken up to my lighter romantic side”
Asked about the numerous link-ups with actresses in Mumbai, Siddharth said: ‘My mother says if rumours on my love life are to be believed, I’m the biggest Casanova ever. In 10 films I’ve been linked with 10 heroines. I’ve even been married to a couple of them and had babies.’Either I am ‘aashiq mizaaz’ or not. I’d rather be because the image is quite helpful. I think I need to take time off to find romance in my life. Right now I see no chance to take time off.’
He has now bought a home at Bandra.Mumbai and intends to shift base from Hyderabad to Mumbai for the next one year to consolidate his position in Hindi cinema.‘I won’t have only one home. I’ll have different homes in different cities. But I’ll give my best shot to Hindi films.However, I can’t move to Mumbai permanently. I’m an actor. I cannot stay in one place. And why should I?‘
Siddharth dreams of becoming a pan-India actor.’I think we keep talking about cross-over cinema in the wrong context. What about our cinema crossing over from one language and region to another? There’re fabulous films being made in every part of the country.’I’ve this very cute dream of being a pan-Indian actor. Insha Allah, in 10 years I’ll have films in different languages and I’ll be appreciated across the country. We need to look at Indian cinema as one entity before we look at global acceptance.’
