Producer-creator Siddharth Malhotra has consistently proved his deep understanding of good cinema and respected the sensibilities of serious movie goers. His recent web-series ‘Kaafir’ took the OTT platform by storm by offering a story which was compelling, sensitive and real. At the recently held Gold Awards in Mumbai, Malhotra received immense critical acclaim and Kaafir brought home multiple awards. The web series bagged the Best Web Series OTT (Critics) award at the prestigious award function along with Best Actor OTT Female (Critics) award for lead actor Dia Mirza.
“Kaafir is a very special story, not just because of the script and the actors but because of the message it delivers and the reality it showcases. It upholds that humanity is the biggest religion and we must be true followers. Receiving these awards for the show has reinforced my belief in the audiences and the content industry yet again. I am reassured that as long as one is being driven by good scripts, appreciation will follow”, says Malhotra.
The producer-director has always set the bar high with every project he has taken on. Whether it was creating ‘Dil Mil Gaye’ or ‘Sanjivani’ at a time when these genres were unexplored. His other venture ‘Hichki’, was rejected by several production houses but had a great run at the box office. Malhotra has always understood the tastes of people who like to watch good cinema.
