His first two movies in Bollywood have been serious ones with gritty, slice-of-life plots, but now actor Siddharth is all set to go the full blown

masala

movie way with his next venture.



He caught eyeballs with his role of a disillusioned young man in his Bollywood debut

Rang De Basanti

and went on to play the truth-inspired character of a carrom player from Mumbai's ghettos in

, but the actor promises his next film will be a light-hearted one.



"The next one is going to be a full-on Bollywood masala movie. It is a big-budget romantic comedy with an A-list director," Siddharth told PTI.



"It is time to show the Hindi audience what I do in the Telugu industry, but I can't reveal much about the film right now," he added. The 30-year-old actor has a loyal fan base in South India, especially Andhra Pradesh, so much so that after his promising debut with

Rang De..

, he took a four-year break to fulfill his commitments in Telugu films.



"I had turned down big-budgeted films with solo leads in Bollywood as I wanted to consolidate my position in the Telugu industry, which paid off as I got three big hits there in the past years. Now there will be no gap," Siddharth said.



The actor, who has also lent his voice for a track in

, hopes to carry on with the vocation if the audience likes him.
