The movie also starred Sonakshi Sinha and Akshay Khanna in the lead role and this film was different than the previous film, Well, Sidharth revealed that he was very afraid to be compared with Rajesh Khanna in the movie. ‘Mr. Rajesh Khanna was one of the biggest stars of our Industry and playing a character which he already played was a big challenge for me. I was wondering how the audience will draw the comparisons but as soon I started working on the film I realized that this is way different than the original one and those apprehensions went away”, he said. He also said that he has not seen the original movie as of yet, but knows the story of it. “Technically, this is not a remake; this is a new film only the essential premise has been taken from the original film. The audience found it new and compelling and also the idea of not promoting this film worked for us”, he said. Well, Sid is one of the actors who always experiment himself; now, we can agree that he is not a very good actor but every time we see him, he is on a different role, he never repeats himself and that’s good for an actor. His movies might not work at the Box Office but he as an actor always tries something new. Also, his new movie ‘Aiyaary’, which also stars Manoj Bajpayee is different than his previous films, he will be seen as an Army officer in the movie and it is directed by Neeraj Pandey.
