Here are some inside details on Sidharth Malhotra’s character in ‘A Gentleman’

For the first time, Sidharth Malhotra will be seen essaying a dual character in the soon-to-release movie ‘A Gentleman: Sundar, Susheel, Risky’. And now, after witnessing the superb trailer and foot-tapping numbers, the makers, who are on a promotional spree, have given us some insights into his character.

The director, Raj Nidimoru, revealed, “The idea isn’t that it’s a typical double role, like separated at birth or something. It’s mistaken identity. So it’s fun that way, to go with the journey. We always felt he’s (Sidharth Malhotra) a very good actor for action films, but we haven’t seen enough of him to do that. So when we thought he’s a really good fit, because he’s got the physique and body language and reflexes too for a very good action personality. At the same time, it was fun to dumb him down and play a sweet guy.” (Also Read: Sidharth and Jacqueline pose outside the iconic Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus)

His character as Gaurav has an innocence while Rishi brings about his badass action avatar. Sidharth aka Gaurav and Rishi shares his experience of playing the character, “I have not played both the characters at the same time. So for me, it’s playing different shades of the character, I won’t inherently call it a double role. You have to watch the film to see the twist. it has two aspects, one is the simple guy, the humour comes out of his simplicity, because of him wanting a simple happy life with a wife, and a good house. And the other one is a little outlandish, aggressive, crazy, who would jump off buildings and do stuff. We never shot both of them at the same time, so it was like playing any other character”.

Raj also shares, “But he did add some nice points between the two characters. When we were discussing how will you distinguish between the two characters because physically you are not so different, small-small things as you see in the film, which we think were really very nice touches”.

The movie stars Jacqueline Fernandez opposite Sidharth Malhotra. Recently, she revealed that she feels blessed to be a part of the movie. Directed by Raj & DK, ‘A Gentleman’ is slated to release on August 25, 2017.
