It’s season of double role films. We can see Arjun Kapoor playing double role in Mubarakan and Varun Dhawan is doing Judwa 2. Now Sidharth Malhotra has surprised us with his new film A Gentleman trailer where we can see him in double role, Rishi and Gaurav. Sidharth says, “True, it’s the season of double roles, isn’t it. Varun, Arjun everyone’s doing it. But my film is not a typical double role film. It’s a concept of mistaken identity. It’s fun that way.” He adds, “You’ll definitely see two different shades, two characters with distinct characteristics. But It’s not your typical double role.” He further explains, “I didn’t have to play both characters at the same time. We didn’t shoot for them at one go. Both my characters have different shades. The twist in the plot and the film will put things in perspective. We can’t really reveal the story just yet, but it is about two perspectives. Gaurav is the simple guy, while Rishi is aggressive and a little crazy.”

Raj & DK directed A Gentleman is slated to release on 25 August and it has the tagline ‘Sundar Susheel Risky’. While his image is that of a good-looking and affable star, the actor identifies more with the risky moniker. He reveals, “External appearances aside, if you talk about who I am within, I’d say I’m risky. I’m adventurous. It’s my parent’s influence that makes me ‘sundar’ and ‘susheel’. I enjoyed the humour of Gaurav’s character. He’s a sweet and simple guy. He loves to cook and clean. He is from Delhi. All Punjabis from Delhi are like that.” Sidharth Malhotra has also indulged in some slick action in this film. He reveals, “I have done all the stunts myself. We didn’t have a body double. We went to Miami and I was standing on a high rise building. Raj and DK were shooting from a chopper from outside. I was fine but Raj Nidimoru started puking. He was given a day off after the chopper shoot. We shot action scenes in Miami and lot of them in Mumbai as well. We shot in Bangkok and Goa too. This film has a lot of good locations. I’m jumping from a building, riding a boat. All the action is real.” From all the set pieces, the exhilarating car sequence is Sidharth’s favourite. He tells, “I loved the stunt with the car. It gets stuck between two buildings. That thought came to us because of Mumbai. Here we have so many high rises, but these towering buildings are all cramped together. So if a car had to jump from one building to the other in Mumbai, it would probably get stuck between two towers. Honestly, I hope the audience enjoys the scene and the entire action. It’s different.” Sidharth enjoys the thrill of doing his own action. He shares, “I love action. I enjoyed playing Rishi the most. I’ve learnt all the hand to hand combat moves from Cyril Raffaelli (French action choreographer and Sidharth’s trainer on A Gentleman). He’s done dozens of Hollywood films. Most of our action is real and believable.”

Sidharth and Jacqueline Farnandez have worked together in Brothers, but back then they didn’t share too much time or screen space. But now that they’ve bonded in A Gentleman he’s got only praise for the pretty girl. “She’s fun to work with. She’s never in a bad mood. She doesn’t let others get affected by her mood. She’ll never let negativity creep into anything she does. Jacqueline is the happiest co-star I’ve ever worked with. I didn’t have a single bad day on set and credit goes to Jackie. She makes everyone comfortable. You don’t need to break the ice with her, she’s always warm and friendly. I envy her.”
