He will be seen next in the remake version of the 1969 murder mystery movie in which actors Rajesh Khanna and actress Nanda had played the lead.

The remake is being produced by Red Chillies, Dharma Productions and BR films.

"I am really excited to work on this project. The script is brilliant and it will be a new screen character for me," Sidharth told PTI.

The "Student of the Year" actor is currently shooting in Miami along with Jacqueline Fernandez for Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK's action film which is yet to be titled.

The high court has shown the way, but at the same time it's unfortunate that filmmakers have to knock the doors of the courts to get redressal when there is a body independently set up by the government to look into film."

"With this decision, the CBFC has expired. We should stop blaming individuals for these things. I think Pahlaj Nihalani is reflection of the system," he further said.

Producer-director Vikram Bhatt said, "Today is our independence day. 'Udta Punjab' is not just a film anymore. It is a movement and one that has ended in the victory of democracy."

Noted film producer Mukesh Bhatt told PTI, "As a filmmaker and President of Film & Television Producers Guild of India, I am a very relieved man today. The entire film fraternity was worried thinking what was ahead of us. We thought this was the end of the tunnel."

"The verdict has re-enforced our faith in judiciary. We don't want a watchdog sitting on top of our heads, cutting the wings of creativity. The board must realise we need to change with times. Today in the age of internet and self-regulation you cannot create archaic laws," he said.
