A huge star of the Telugu film industry, Siddharth may not be a known name in Bollywood, except for a short but impressive role in RANG DE BASANTI but his chocolate boy good looks in the Idea Walk And Talk AD has made him quite popular with the females. His upcoming film, STRIKER has come after a gap of almost four years. The film revolves around a carom player who comes from a poor family in Malwani area of Mumbai (1980s) and has a passion for carom and goes on to win the junior championship.
However, lead actor Siddharth categorically denies that STRIKER is a sports film, although the game is very central to the plot. He prefers to call STRIKER a period drama which is inspired by the times when every day young unemployed youth used to go out of slums empty-handed but returned with thousands of rupees, all because of their skills in carom. He goes on to add that there used to be around 3000 carom clubs in the city and the underground carom scene has been breeding hustlers and gamblers for many years.
Looks like the intelligent actor has done his homework and after this insight it gives us all the more reason to check out STRIKER which releases this Friday, that is 5th February!
