Television soap 'Balika Vadhu' might see another star of their popular show quit for greener pastures and the big screen.
Filmmaker Karan Johar has signed popular TV actor Siddharth Shukla for upcoming film 'Humpty Sharma ki Dulhaniya'.
Karan Johar confirmed the news and said, “Yes. Siddharth has been signed up for the film. He is a talented actor and a rage in Balika Vadhu. Dharma Productions plans to continue its professional equation with him.
Though Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt are playing the lead characters, Siddharth will be given his due.
Siddharth, best known for his role as Shiv, has signed a three film deal with Karan Johar's Dharma production.
Siddharth was a participant in the dance reality show 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa', in which Karan was one of the judges.
After playing the male lead in 'Balika Vadhu' for four years the dance show proved to be his big ticket.
His interactions with judge Karan Johar helped him bag the role and opened his approach towards dance.
Siddharth is continuing with his TV shoots and will soon set up meeting with the producers of the show.
It might not be long before his fans see a new Shiv romancing their Anandi.
Even the character Anandi saw many actors sashaying the role.
Actress Pratyusha Banerjee walked out of the show last year creating uproar among her fans who wanted her back.
Pratyusha stepped into the shoes of child prodigy Avika Gor as Anandi in 2010, when the show, based on child marriage, took a five-year leap.
Bollywood is every actor’s dream. While many TV stars may not get a break or remain unsuccessful in leaving their mark on the silver screen, there are few who have done exceptionally well.
From Shah Rukh Khan, Vidya Balan, Rajeev Khandelwal and to the latest heartthrob Sushant Singh Rajput, these actors saw their dream come true.
