Will Sidharth bounce back with Vikram Batra biopic, 'Shotgun Shaadi'?Last updated on May 04, 2018, 01:55 pm
After showing a lot of promise at the start of his career, Sidharth Malhotra has fallen out of favor.
The box office failure of his last four releases, 'Aiyaary', 'Ittefaq', 'A Gentleman', 'Baar Baar Dekho', has hurt him bad.
In his quest for a true blue hit, Sidharth has now signed two new projects - Kargil war hero Vikram Batra biopic and 'Shotgun Shaadi'.

Karan Johar has taken upon himself the onus to bring Sidharth back in the game.
He took to Twitter to announce that the yet-to-be-titled Vikram Batra biopic will be produced by his Dharma Productions.
Of nine films in which Sidharth has acted so far, six have been backed by Karan.
Here is the tweet by Karan

Sidharth will also be seen as a Bihari thug
After playing a war hero, Sidharth will turn in to a Bihari thug in 'Shotgun Shaadi'.
The film revolves around the groom kidnapping issue prevalent in Bihar.
To be produced by Ekta Kapoor, it might star Shraddha Kapoor opposite Sidharth.
Sidharth and Shraddha have previously worked together in 'Ek Villain', another Ekta production.
Sidharth's last hit was 'Kapoor And Sons'
Sidharth last tasted success with Shakun Batra's 'Kapoor And Sons' which released in 2016. The film was a multi-starrer family drama featuring Fawad Khan, Alia Bhatt, Rajat Kapoor, Ratna Pathak and Rishi Kapoor. It minted around Rs. 72 crore at the box office.
