First an actor, then a star: Siddharth
Mumbai: Siddharth Arora, currently seen in 'Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha', wants to become an actor first. He takes inspiration from the likes of Manoj Bajpayee and Aamir Khan, known for their high voltage performances.
"I want to be versatile, don't want to stick to a particular kind of shows. I want to become an actor before a star. I am inspired by Manoj Bajpayee and Aamir Khan," he told IANS.
The 25-year-old also featured in 'Mukti Bandhan' and said his character of Vaibhav Virani was different from what he is currently playing in 'Na Bole...'
"My role in 'Mukti Bandhan' was of a suave, rich businessman. However, in 'Na Bole Tum...', my role is more of a rustic guy. The two characters are totally different," he said.
He is only interested in playing lead roles.
"I don't know the reason for this, but I want to do only lead roles. I want to be known as a lead actor. I have not thought about what kind of role I would like to play next, but I don't mind playing a police inspector," he added.
And what about Bollywood?
"Everyone wants to do films and so do I. So, if I will be offered something good, I will take it up. I was a part of a film last year called 'Yeh Jo Mohabbat Hai'. The film didn't do that well, but it was a good experience," he said.
