Ekta Kapoor and Mohit Suri have cast Student of The Year star Sidharth Malhotra, as the lead for their forthcoming film, whose working title is “The Villain”.
Sidharth, the hottest debutant of the year, was the makers’ first choice for “The Villain”. They were looking for a rugged, good looking action star, and Sidharth fit the bill effortlessly.
From what we hear the story will have many elements with lots of action and romance as the main flavor of the film. It will be Sidharth’s first out-and-out masala film, showcasing him in a new avatar as tomorrow’s angry, young man.
On selecting Sidharth Malhotra, Tanuj Garg, CEO – Balaji Motion Pictures, said, “Sidharth has become a hugely popular commodity after Student of the Year, and has the appeal, looks and intensity to carry a commercial action-romantic thriller on his shoulders. Mohit is one of the most prolific and accomplished young directors on the scene today. Sid & Mohit together with Balaji, makes for a lethal combination.”
As to who the hot actor will be romancing, we don’t know that yet as the filmmakers have yet to reveal the female lead starring opposite Sidharth.
Interstingly, this is the first time Balaji and Mohit Suri will be working together and is also mark Mohit Suri’s first film outside the Bhatt camp.
The film will go on floor in September this year and release early next year.
