Sidharth Malhotra to train in martial arts

Sidharth Malhotra has so far been seen in very chick flick type roles so far. His forthcoming ‘Ek Villain’ in just a couple of weeks will see a different side to him. However, BizAsia has learnt that he is also going to be training in marital arts for the upcoming Hindi remake of Hollywood film ‘Warrior’ (2011).

“The film I am doing next is very exciting. It has an interesting script and it has lot of scope for two characters. It is about mixed martial arts and fighting. I will have to start training for it soon. I should start training (for mixed martial arts) in a month’s time. We would be getting a trainer for it,” said Malhotra to PTI.

There was initially news that Akshay Kumar would also be cast in the Karan Johar produced film which is a story about two brothers who face each other in a martial arts tournament. No doubt Kumar is ideal for such a role what with his obvious expertise in the area, however, he is not yet finalised for the film. “It is not official yet (about Akshay). But it will be interesting if he does the film,” added Malhotra.

Malhotra also confirmed that the script is not yet watertight but that director Tarun Mansukhani is working on it.
