After playing a charming lover in his debut film, Student Of The Year (2012), actor Sidharth Malhotra is now all set to work on attaining a rugged look for his next, The Villain.
Before he starts shooting for the film starting mid-October, the actor will be spending 20 days to prepare for the role. “During the next couple of weeks, he will be concentrating on his physique and look to prepare for his character in The Villain,” says a source close to the film’s team.
In the film, Sidharth will be seen portraying a dark and intense role. “He will be training and developing a chiselled physique to look the part. He will also grow a beard to look rough and tough,” adds the source.
Sidharth too, is thrilled to be experimenting with his looks. “My look in The Villain is very different. All I can say is that audiences have never seen me like that before,” he says.
