The actor has been watching films featuring double roles to prepare for his own attempt to play two people in one film
Sidharth Malhotra has two double role films coming up, one of them being the roles of Captain Vikram Batra and his twin Vishal in the upcoming film 'Shershaah'.
The other one that is coming up is a remake of the Tamil hit 'Thadam' which starred Arun Vijay, Tanya Hope and Smruthi Venkat in the lead roles.
The actor has been preparing for the role by just watching films.
“Sidharth is watching a lot of good films which have double roles by the lead character. One of the films he watched was the Dilip Kumar film Ram Aur Shyam and was stunned by it. He is watching more such films so that he can prepare for the Thadam remake without getting too stressed about it. The film was to go on the floors with Vardhan Ketkar as the director for producers Murad Khetani and Bhushan Kumar in the month of May, and may not be much delayed if the pre-production work and the locations are locked, assuming that the lockdown ends soon,” says a source.
Thadam is a typical whodunnit and has Arun Vijay in dual roles. One of them commits a murder and the case becomes one of the most controversial stories for the media as well. And as cops investigate the case, they are floored when they see two people with the same face and arrest both of them. But later both of them are set free due to lack of evidence and the drama begins.
