Sidharth Shukla Was Not Keen On Bollywood



Sidharth Shukla

Like  Sushant Singh Rajput after Pavitra Rishta,  Sidharth Shukla  was  already a  huge name  on  television when he made his Bollywood debut  in 2014 with  Karam Johar’s Humpty Sharma ki Dulhaniya.

In spite of  the  film’s success, Sidharth was  not too keen  on pursuing  a  career  in Bollywood.

In an  interview with me  Sidharth had said, “”Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya was a great experience. I didn’t have the author-backed role. And yet I didn’t feel sidelined at all. Throughout the shooting and afterwards during promotion it was ‘Humpty’ Varun Dhawan, ‘Dulhaniya’ Alia Bhatt and the Dulhaniya’s fiance played by me. Not for a second did I feel secondary. I’ve no regrets about at all about doing Humpty Sharma.”

However he  ruled out a  career  in Bollywood.  “Now until I get something as appealing as Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya I am back giving all my time to television.”

Siddharth Shukla says juggling between Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya and Ballika Vadhu was not easy. “Earlier I had juggled between Jhalak Dikhla Jaa and Ballika Vadhu. So doing two projects together was not new to me. Being at two different shootings at the same time was something I kind of knew how to do. Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya was something I had to do. I had to stretch myself as an actor.”
