Sidharth Malhotra definitely knows what he is doing. To begin with, he doesn't wish to be restricted to be playing a brooding lover boy forever, something that is apparent with HASEE TOH PHASEE which is a quintessential Bollywood romcom and THE VILLAIN which is going to throw him into an action arena.
'I was told by people after STUDENT OF THE YEAR that I should be doing an intense love story. Then there are others who wanted me to do hardcore comedy. I am fiddling with both. Let's see how exciting things turn out to be now. It is too early to close on one particular genre and say that I have found a niche. It would be unfair for me to be tagged in good or bad in anything in particular so early in my career,'' he smiles.
What was a tad unfair though were some of the comments that came his way for the dancing skills that he demonstrated in portions of his debut flick STUDENT OF THE YEAR.
'See, I am a slightly stiff dancer and have not been trained in Bollywood dance. In fact in the promos people were seeing me dance and I had no choice but to keep quiet since dancing is not my strong point at all. My main thing was into dialogue delivery and body language. But that's okay, I am working on that now. I won't have to be as quiet anymore,'' Sidharth promises with a smile before signing off.
