New Delhi: Sidharth Malhotra says he is inspired by Parineeti Chopra.

The model-turned-actor thinks 'Ishaqzaade' actress is energetic and funky.

"On the sets of 'Hasee Toh Phasee', Parineeti makes sure she rehearses a lot which helps me hone my acting skills too," Malhotra told us.

'Hasee Toh Phasee' is a romantic comedy produced by Karan Johar which will release next year. Malhotra will be seen playing a regular guy although he is less ambitious than Abhimanyu, his character in 'Student of the Year'.

Malhotra will next be seen opposite 'Aashiqui 2' fame Shraddha Kapoor in an action film 'The Villain'.

"We'll start shooting for 'The Villain' this September. It's a dark role," said the actor, who was in the capital to launch a store.

Other than the two films, the 28-year-old's untitled action flick is to be directed by Remo D'Souza.

"I might work in Remo's film on car racing but I don't really know when that would begin," said Malhotra.

The actor, who has previously worked as an assistant director with Karan Johar in 'Dostana' and 'My Name is Khan', looks forward to working with his mentor in future.

"Imtiaz Ali, Zoya Akhtar and Rajkumar Hirani are some of the directors I would love to work with," he added.
