In his upcoming release Baar Baar Dekho, Siddharth Malhotra’s character travels back in time-a story that intrigued him from day one. Recently the actor was quizzed about his wishlist and the role he’d like to explore if he got the same opportunity in real life and Siddharth smiled, “It would have to be Mr Amitabh Bachchan’s film, Hum. I would give anything to do the Jumma Chumma number in the film. Apart from that, I found the transformation in Amit-ji’s character amazing in the film. Hum would be absolutely a great remake too,” Siddharth revealed.
The actor who will be seen showing his dancing prowess for the first time on screen in Baar Baar Dekho, also recalled how challenging it was matching his steps with Katrina Kaif in the Kala Chasma song, knowing that Katrina is an amazing dancer, “Katrina has performed to a good number of solo tracks and I had to remind her on occasions that I was there in the song too,” he smiles. What inspired him to put his level best was the kind of effort Katrina would put in her getting her moves rights, “She would put endless hours of hard work in her song rehearsals. It motivated me to be in the studio and rehearse with her. Working with Katrina was a fulfilling experience. She approaches every scene and song as if it’s her first and keeps reinventing herself,” he revealed, adding that he had now begun to enjoy dance much more. “I realized how much I love dancing during the recent Dream Team Tour. I had one of the best times of my life performing live on stage. I enjoyed every bit of it and the response was overwhelming,” he revealed.
On being asked about whether he felt pressurized about living up to expectations at the box-office, Siddharth said, “I have no such pressures. I have been pretty lucky with all my films, apart from Brothers, which was the only film that did not get the deserving box-office response. However, my efforts and the hard work that I had put in the film were widely appreciated. In the industry, your fate changes from Friday to Friday. What I treasure always is the experience of doing a film. I take back home the experience with me. It becomes a part of my life,” he said.
