Actors in this generation are increasingly becoming producers, believing that they would like to add their name to stories which the audiences would find interesting. Sidharth Malhotra might be another who is about to do the same, as he recently revealed.
“The thought has crossed my mind. If there’s a film that I feel extremely passionate about, I would want to put my name on it as a producer and back it up. I definitely see myself doing that in the future because there are so many interesting stories to tell and sometimes, actors want to collaborate. I am definitely looking out for something to happen soon,” said Malhotra, according to Filmfare. The actor said he’s interested in direction, “Direction is something that is at the back of my mind all the time. I like the process of filmmaking”.
He went on to add, “I love how a film is edited, I absolutely love it when somebody puts up a good shot, I have immense respect for filmmakers, who do it every day. But right now, I am consumed by telling stories as an actor. I think maybe somewhere way ahead in the future, I would want to tell a story as a director too. You never know!”
The actor will be seen next in ‘A Gentleman’ opposite Jacqueline Fernandez, which releases on 25th August.
