Siddharth Malhotra: I Can’t Be Solely Blamed For a Film’s Poor Collection
Siddharth Malhotra has had a busy year and is currently awaiting the release of Jabariya Jodi. He opened up about how an actor should not be blamed entirely for a film’s failure
Sidharth Malhotra has had a busy 2019 up until now and is currently busy promoting Jabariya Jodi in which he will be seen starring opposite Parineeti Chopra. Soon after the completion of promotions, the Student of the Year actor will dive onto the sets of Shershaah which is a biopic on Vikram Batra and Marjaavaan. In Shershaah, Sidharth Malhotra will be sharing screen space with Kiara Advani, and meanwhile in Marjaavaan, Sidharth will be seen romancing Tara Sutaria. Siddharth Malhotra very seldom does interviews and now he has opened up about the box office and the fate of every film.
In the interview, Sidharth Malhotra opened up about the box office collections for films and said that acting is such a precarious profession that the leading actor alone can not be blamed for the failure or success of a film because every film has a different fate, and one needs to be consistent as an actor. “Not every film will work and you will make mistakes. It could be the route you took, the approach you had for a role or the team, or something else. You have to constantly keep a tab on these things — on what worked in your favour and what didn’t,” Sid said during his interview.
After Hasee Toh Phasee, Jabariya Jodi, directed by Prashant Singh, is Sidharth’s second film with Parineeti Chopra and while we will see Sidharth as Abhay Singh, a Patna-based goon, Parineeti will be playing the feisty Babli Yadav. Jabariya Jodi also stars Javed Jaffrey, Sanjay Mishra, Aparshakti Khurana, Ruslaan Mumtaz and Chandan Roy Sanyal.
Ever since Siddharth made his big Bollywod debut, he has had a couple of films which did not fare well at the box office. Speaking on the film’s failure, Sid said that he cannot be solely blamed for a movie's failure as he said that unfortunately, if a film fails, it all becomes about the actor, but the fact of the matter is that there’s a team behind every film. “I can’t be solely blamed for a film’s poor collections, and I also can’t be the only reason for a film to work," Siddharth had said.
