Siddharth Shukla the leading television actor get role in Karan Johar’s next production, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya, impressed the filmmaker enough to bag a three-film deal.
”I can’t say now if I will leave television for films. As of now I will work out a way to do both. If there is a leap then that is something I will think when such track is introduced in the show. Karan Johar is a highly understanding individual and has given me freedom to work in both mediums. I do agree that at times Shiv is the righteous husband and did not have many shades to play earlier, but there will be interesting tracks around him in the future. And even if I cross the bridge and move to films, I will continue to say ‘hello’ to the other side – I will never leave television, not for now.” He said.
Says Karan, “Siddharth showed great promise during the show. I felt he has the potential to be on the large screen. Even Humpty… director Shashank Khaitan said that he felt Siddharth could play this role, which is integral to the movie.”
