Actor Sidharth Malhotra keen to produce films

Vastavam web:He may have started his career as an assistant director but actor Sidharth Malhotra says there is still time for him to helm a movie and the more “immediate step” is to produce films.The actor was an assistant on Karan Johar’s “My Name is Khan” before he switched to acting and made his debut with the filmmaker’s directorial “Student of the Year”.
“That’s more immediate step, to put all money in a film and hope that it brings you back rewards. Directing will be something, somewhere later in life,” he adds.The 32-year-old actor says he doesn’t always think like a director on sets but definitely “observes” how things work.”If I can give a suggestion, be it for the prop, a scene, or dialogue, I’d give it hoping that it would make the film better,” Sidharth adds.The actor, who will be seen next in “A Gentleman”, says he instantly agreed to be part of the “mad cap” universe of filmmaker duo Raj and DK when they offered him the movie.
“We have kind of collaborated Raj & DK’s world with mine and created this animal called ‘A Gentleman’. It’s slick and stylish and also a family entertainer,” he says.
