Sidharth Malhotra has reportedly replaced Hrithik Roshan in the “Bang Bang!” sequel, but the “Brothers” actor says “so far there is no such official news”. Though he didn’t confirm signing the film, he did share that he will start working on an action film soon.
Asked if he will star with Jacqueline Fernandez in the sequel to the 2014 action thriller “Bang Bang!”, Sidharth said: “So far there is no such official news. When there is, I will talk about it. I’ve been reading stuff about it too. But when it becomes official, I think we will talk about it. So far there is nothing to say.”
He is currently tied up with “Kapoor and Sons”, which also features his “Student of the Year” co-star Alia Bhatt and Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.
“The shooting of the film is 90 percent done. It is releasing on March 18 next year. Then I will move on to Nitya Mehra’s film. It’s a long outdoor shoot in UK. I will finish that by end of the year. Then I will move on to something else in action space. I am planning to go back to action and looking forward to the next year,” shared the 30-year-old.
Post the success of “Brothers”, Sidharth is just happy that “there’s more acceptance and eagerness to see me on screen”.
“It’s an encouraging thing that so many people were eager to see the film. I must be doing something that they (masses) are liking. It’s extremely encouraging and positive,” he said.
The action-packed family drama, which released on August 14, collected Rs.72.6 crore net at the box office in its first week.
