I may marry in my 30s: Sidharth

Hindustan Times ST (Jaipur) - Hindustan Times (Jaipur) - City - - Front Page - Pooja Sharma

Sidharth Mal­ho­tra has been part of var­i­ous gen­res: drama, ac­tion, and rom-coms. Now, the ac­tor will be seen in a com­pletely dif­fer­ent avatar in Aiyaary and the mod­ern adap­ta­tion of It­te­faq (1969). In a quick chat, he talks about his fu­ture plans, film pro­duc­tion, mar­riage and more. Be­sides the gen­res you’ve dab­bled into, if you were now of­fered a biopic, a pe­riod film or a su­per-hero flick, what would you like to ex­plore first? If I have to pick, for me, it is all about rein­vent­ing some­thing and get­ting a genre back. Maybe I get to do a pe­riod film where the char­ac­ter plays a sport and even has su­per hero pow­ers (laughs). So yes… all three.

Where do you see your­self five years from now? I def­i­nitely see my­self con­tin­u­ing to act on screen — do­ing dif­fer­ent kinds of roles and dif­fer­ent gen­res.

And any plans of mar­riage? Well that I don’t know. My mum would be happy. That’s some­thing I have not planned and you can’t plan it. No of­fense, but I don’t get the whole sanc­tity of get­ting peo­ple arranged (for mar­riage). I rather know the per­son who I will set­tle down with. But if I had to put a cap on it, maybe in my 30s I will get hitched.

Would you ever like to get into di­rec­tion or film pro­duc­tion? I think that will hap­pen. We are all sto­ry­tellers. I would like to inspire peo­ple and tell more sto­ries. I would never refuse a film or do a film for an x amount of money. If there is a story I can con­trib­ute to by be­ing a pro­ducer, I will tell that story 100%.
