After the huge success of Dharma Production’s Shershaah, Sidharth Malhotra is on the mend when he is approached by major production houses to cast him in their films. Among them is Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment, to whom the actor has already given his formal nod for a movie directed by Gauri Shinde.
In the Karan Johar-produced film, the actor played the role of a real Indian army officer, Captain Vikram Batra, who lost his life while fighting for the country during the 1999 Kargil War. The biographical drama also featured Kiara Advani as Dimple Cheema .
Meanwhile, Sidharth Malhotra is currently working on several major banner projects. In addition, he is also in talks with Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment for a life film directed by Dear Zindagi helmer Gauri Shinde.
A source close to the development told News18: “A lot of filmmakers are now trying to count on Shershaah’s success. One of the films Sidharth Malhotra is about to sign is the next film from English Vinglish director Gauri Shinde, which is a real-life comedy and will be produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment. The actor enjoyed the script and gave an informal nod. The formalities are expected to be completed soon.”
The insider goes on to say that the as-yet-untitled project is expected to launch in the second half of 2022: “Sidharth is currently working on Yodha in which he will reprise his role as a soldier. Once he finishes filming, he will join the promotions of Mission Majnu, which is scheduled for release on May 13, and later, Thank You, which is expected to arrive in July 2022. After that, the actor will start working with Gauri Shinde around September.”
While nothing has been confirmed yet, we’ll just have to wait for an official announcement from the creators. If the news turns out to be true, the upcoming comedy film will be the Student Of The Year actors’ third collaboration with Shah Rukh Khan, as Sidharth Malhotra previously worked as an assistant director in My Name Is Khan and in the SRK-produced film Ittefaq acted.
