Hasee Toh Phasee, again produced by Karan, is however different from SOTY, said Siddharth. Talking about his character, Siddharth said that he is "not a typical hero".
"He is not so successful...he is under pressure and is the most stressed out character in the film," he said.
The film did not only allow Siddharth to play something new but also gave him a chance to be back home in Delhi. Being born and brought up here, the actor misses his family and friends when he is in Mumbai.

"I don't have family there. You miss hanging out with cousins and old school friends. You miss that comfort zone and support system," he said, adding that he makes it a point to visit home "once every two months".
The weather is another thing that attracts Siddharth. "The more time I spend in Mumbai, the more I want to come here. Delhi has winter and Mumbai doesn't; so we get to wear these cool clothes here. I miss the food, family interactions, and places to go. Delhi has changed, but it still has that family charm to it," he said.
A former model, Siddharth had his own share of struggle and before his big break, he even worked as an assistant director in Karan's My Name Is Khan. He feels the key to success is to keep on moving forward and taking whatever work you get.
"The advice is to not sit at home and wait for that phone call. You should keep doing something or the other...anything which you do will help you as an actor. I feel it is important to keep at it; if it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone," he said.
With his next, Mohit Suri's The Villain scheduled for this year as well, the actor said that he would finally be able to prove his full potential. "I guess after this year, I will be in a better position to see where I am headed. I am doing two very diametrically opposite films. It takes a lot from you as an actor to do this. It will be very interesting to do this," said Siddharth.
