Sidharth Malhotra Is Training With A French Stunt Director For His First Action Film



Baar Baar Dekho, the film Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif gave their blood sweat and tears to, has underperformed at the boxoffice. But Sidharth has no time to mope over his discontent. He is busy shooting his first full-fledged action film where he plays, hold your breath, a secret agent.

So it’s a role with a whole amount of sophisticated stylized stunts.

Says Sidharth, “I am currently shooting for an action film  with Jacqueline Fernandez.I am training with a French action director Cyril Rafaelli.I am learning hand combat and several other forms of action. ”

Rafaelli who has done the stunts in The Transporter series has also done Akshay Kumar’s action scenes inBaby.

Says  Siddharth, “Akhay and I had an American team of action supervisors in Brothers. Here I’ve a French stunt supervisor. We’ve already completed 40 percent of the film and we still don’t have a title. Everyone thought  it was called Bang Bang 2 because it’s being produced by Fox Star  who made Bang Bang. But our film is in no way related to Bang Bang.We are still trying to figure out the title.”

Sidharth’s untitled action film is directed by  the duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK

Says Sidharth, “They’ve directed some amazing films in the past like Shor In The City. They are doing an action film for first time, and so am I.”
So  what kind of an action film does Sidharth hope to put on screen? “It’s not just pulse-pounding fist-flying action. There is a coherent script and  a lot of humour. If I’ve to think of one parallel  in the action genre from Hollywood  it would have to be True Lies.”

He gives that a thought. “We hope the action will be at least one notch higher than  what Indian audiences are used to seeing. We have an international team to guide me through the action. We don’t have the budget to  blow up cars and buildings.But we have a solid storyline, humour and stunts that stretch neither credibility nor our budget.”
