Sidharth Malhotra to travel time in his next film

MUMBAI: Karan Johar's student of the year Sidharth Malhotra is already a hit among the ‘cinemagoers.’ After back to back hits like Hasee Toh Phasee and Ek Villain, the actor has become one of the most successful newcomers in the industry. As he prepares to take on Akshay Kumar in the boxing ring in Karan Malhotra’s Brothers, a remake of ‘Warriors’ and cloak himself as a vigilante superhero in Vikramaditya Motwane's Bhavesh Joshi, Sidharth Malhotra has another interesting movie in his bag.


According to media reports, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani has roped in Sidharth Malhotra to act in their next film which will be co-produced by the actor’s mentor Karan Johar. The movie was initially offered to Aamir Khan but the actor and the studio failed to agree on the remuneration and other commercial clauses.


The yet untitled film is said to be a love story with a twist, about a time-traveller, with a romance which spans across timelines and will be directed by debutante Nitya Mehra.


Confirming the news to media Sidhwani said, "Yes, Sidharth is on board and Karan too. Karan is a good friend and we've been talking about collaborating on a film for quite some time now. It was a conversation with the film's hero which eventually brought Karan onboard. He heard about this film from Sid and asked us for the script. He loved it so much that he said he would be happy to get involved in any capacity. Farhan and I have never co-produced before, Karan is our first partner."


The film is expected to go on floors by April 2015, the leading lady will be locked in another four-five days.
