Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani are busy going out and about in the city these days. No, it’s not with their romance or private dinners, but the two are rather busy with the promotions of their film Shershaah. The film which will drop on an OTT platform soon is directed by Vishnuvardhan and backed by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions.
Vishnuvardhan has helmed several South films and this is his first time in the Hindi film industry. Recently the director talked to a daily about his film and he was all praise for his leading lady – Kiara Advani. In the interview he says that in a film when the casting is right, 50 per cent of your battle is won and the rest 50 per cent is how they perform. He said that Kiara is one of the smartest and most intelligent actors he has met.
The director soon draws parallels between the actress and South biggie Nayanthara. He said to the daily, “The last I had met someone like that was Nayanthara and seeing Kiara today, well, it was a pleasure working with her. When I had worked with Nayan, she used to be so sharp and so intelligent and I felt that similar way when working with Kiara. She’s so smart and so sharp. All you need to do is just give them a hint and tell them what it is and they catch it so fast.”
Now that’s a big compliment for Kiara Advani. Nayanthara is one of the most powerful actresses in Indian cinema and down South she’s almost tagged as the ‘hero’ of the film and always picks the most challenging roles. Vishnuvardhan has worked with Nayanthara in films like Bolla and Arrambam. Shershaah sees Kiara Advani and Sidharth Malhotra team up on screen for the first time. The two are said to be dating in real life.
