Colors star Sidharth Shukla aka Shiv, who rose to popularity as an idealistic son and an utterly romantic husband in Balika Vadhu, is all set to make his big screen debut with Dharma Productions upcoming film, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. His onscreen persona is no different from his real life as the coy and modest actor did not leave any chance to acknowledge and owe this opportunity to Colors’ dance reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa. “Jhalak has played a big role in this. I was just a contestant and Karan sir noticed me. He thought I was a perfect fit for the character and I got the role. I really owe it to Jhalak,” Sidharth confessed.
Talking about his character in the film he said, “I am playing the character of Angad, a good guy whose goodness turns bad for Humpty in the film.”
Talking about his celluloid experience, Sidharth was all praise for the team. “It was a young and cool team. Varun is two-movies old and Alia is three-movies old. Both have given successful movies and are stars in their own right, but they never made me feel like a newcomer. The team was very energetic and Varun and I used to improvise together,” Sidharth told us.
Sidharth was no less than nostalgic as he shared some memories and moments from the set. “I remember the first day of the shoot; my director Shashank Khaitan gave me a 4 page script and told me that it is going to be a heavy day at work. I replied that in TV we even do 20 pages script in a day. He replied: Hello you TV guys stop looking down on us movie makers!”
Colors wishes Sidharth all the best and a huge box-office success for Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania.
