When Sidharth Malhotra was seen at the Marflix Office earlier last week, rumours circulated that the actor and Siddharth Anand were working together. Pinkvilla has some exclusive updates on the encounter, which piqued the interest of the followers who wanted more information. Sidharth Malhotra, Siddharth Anand, and Mamta Anand have reportedly been meeting to talk about making an action movie, according to sources close to the development.
“Sidharth Malhotra wants to do more films in the action space and who better than Siddharth Anand to bring the genre to the big screen? Their conversations are moving in the right direction, however, things have yet to find a place on paper. It’s a film which will be produced by Marflix and the motto of the banner is to make some of the biggest action thrillers in India,” disclosed a source close to the development.
After serving in various roles on some of the biggest action blockbusters in Hindi cinema history, Rohan Khambati’s yet-to-be-titled film will be his directorial debut. He was the AD on films like Pathaan, Dhoom 3, and Anjana Anjani, among others, and worked as the action designer on blockbuster films like Jawan and Pathaan. The informant continued, “Having worked with Sid before, Rohan has got the perfect producer in Marflix to support his vision.”
At present, the film is in its first phases of discussion, with Sid and Rohan attempting to align their visions. The source said, “If everything goes as planned, the yet-untitled action thriller will take off by the end of next year.”
It is anticipated that Sid will wrap up filming two films before he moves on to the action movie with Marflix. The actor’s first project of 2024 is Spider, a Maddock production in which Janhvi Kapoor co-stars. Next up is a real-life drama for Junglee Pictures starring Meghna Gulzar. On the other side, Marflix is getting ready for the January release of Fighter, starring Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone, with plans to open the Rohit Dhawan film Rambo after that.
