Sidharth Malhotra knocked it out of the park with his first-ever Bollywood film Student of the Year back in 2012. While he has continued to be in the spotlight since, it has been for both good and bad reasons. His first 2019 release Jabariya Jodi did not fare too well at the box office, it seems like he still wants to continue working hard and pushing boundaries. With his next film Marjaavaan, alongside Tara Sutaria, Ritiesh Deshmukh, and Rakul Preet Singh, all set to hit silver screens on November 15, the actor has another project in mind. Keeping up with the current fad, he wants to star in and produce a superhero film, he disclosed in an interview with Mumbai Mirror.
Five years down the line, along with challenging himself as an actor, Sidharth aims to launch his own production house. Speaking about his dream, he said, "I’d like to spin a superhero franchise and act in it, too. I'm a big fan of the Marvel series. This is one genre that intrigues me, more so because we have so much existing material in our country’s mythology."
In Marjaavan, the cast and crew claim that the tragic love story personifies the flavour of the 80s and 90s as far as its drama, dialogues and action stints are concerned. Sidharth's role is inspired by heroes from the 80s and 90s, including megastar Amitabh Bachchan's character from Deewar. Speaking about it, Sidharth said that he grew up watching Amitabh, Sanjay Dutt, and Sunny Deol. Before watching Deewar, Sidharth said Big B's Hum had a huge impact on him. He weighed in on his plans to cater to a larger audience with his upcoming films like Marjaavaan and SherShaah. He added that he'd have loved to produce the latter. For now, we are very excited about his future plans!
