Sidharth Malhotra reacts to Akshaye Khanna having meatier role in 'Ittefaq'
Unfazed by co-star Akshaye Khanna having meatier role in Ittefaq, Sidharth Malhotra asserts he prioritises stories over screen time
After a string of flops, Sidharth Malhotra's latest release, Ittefaq, has managed to garner a positive response. The actor says when it comes to signing a film, getting more screen space is not his priority.
"The length of a role is the least of my concerns when I green-light a script. In Ittefaq, the story is told by Akshaye Khanna, who has a sizeable part in the movie. Since I don't belong to a film family, I never get into the insecure zone. Personally, I am not the one to eat into someone's work or role. It's always better to work with better actors. I am upping my game," he says.
The actor is proud of his career choices. "For me, stories matter the most. In films like Brothers and Aiyaary, I was clear that I wanted those parts to make my resume stronger," says Malhotra. He adds that he wants to experiment with different genres. "This is the time to test the waters. I am reacting to stories rather than if I am going to get to hog the limelight."
