“Sidharth plays a double role for the first time in his career, a businessman and a small-time thief and gambler always looking to make a quick buck. The film is currently in prep and the team is working towards creating two distinct looks for him,” a source close to the development told Mumbai Mirror. The report further said that the makers are looking for an A-list actress who would be able to join them within two weeks.
Talking about the Tamil hit film, Thadam, it starred Arun Vijay in the lead role. It narrates the story of two identical-looking people caught in the cat and mouse game with the cops after a murder. The source further informed about the film saying, “The story has plenty of thrills which lend themselves to some interesting chase sequences, something that appealed to Sid instantly, in addition to the challenge of playing a double role.”
Meanwhile, Sidharth has wrapped up Shershaah and has moved on to his next co-starring Ajay Devgn and Rakul Preet Singh, a report in Mumbai Mirror read. The makers have not yet decided the name. The film is expected to go on floors in May.
