Sidharth Malhotra: I kept calm when AIYAARY was being pushed further
Sidharth Malhotra is gearing up for his next AIYAARY, which stars Rakul Preet Singh, Manoj Bajpayee, Pooja Chopra.
Since long time AIYAARY has been playing musical chair, with it being pushed forward because of PADMAN and PADMAAVAT. Finally AIYAARY is releasing on 16 February!
Sidharth, is playing an army officer in the film, is a part of a spy thriller and he is totally confident about the content of the film.
In an exclusive conversation with Sidharth we asked him what made him take up this role and how challenging was it to play a role of an army officer to which he said, “AIYAARY is a relevant and real film, and this is essentially because of Neeraj Pandey’s writing. Also, this is the first time I have a story and a script that can make a difference and has a message for the youth of this country. I love the thriller zone, and the action that comes with chase sequences makes it quite entertaining. The title is very apt for our film, because the characters are military intelligence agents.”
When asked him about his take on the frequent push of release dates these days and what would he do to keep himself calm in the stressful situation, Sidharth averred, “I kept calm and I am usually patient. There are so many dates and clashes are bound to happen. I am glad the film is releasing on 16th finally and we have got the censor certificate which we were waiting for.”
Talking about working with Manoj Bajpayee Sidharth Malhotra said, “We got friendly because the kind of person he is. He doesn’t carry the weight of doing such serious cinema and prolific work. Most of my scenes are with Manoj and I got to learn so much from him; especially understanding how they (actor's like him) treat acting, their preparations. It was nice of him to just sit with me and talk about acting. I asked about the techniques he adopted while working in theatre, how he prepared for his scenes, Hindi poetry, Urdu diction...there is so much to learn! I also learnt from Manoj only by observing him prepare on sets.”
