Actor Siddharth will be making his debut in Malayalam now with Kammara Sambhavam after having been in films for more than 15 years and in three different languages. Siddharth will be playing a pivotal role in Kammara Ssambhavam which also stars actor Dileep and is directed by Rathish Ambat. Siddharth might have made his debut in Malayalam long back with Ustad Hotel which starred Dulquer Salmaan in the lead role and is one of the most acclaimed films in Malayalam. The multi-talented actor says that he feels unlucky to have missed Ustad Hotel but says he missed it because of prior commitments. “My first Malayalam film might have been Ustad Hotel but I didn’t have the time back then and I was unlucky to miss that movie,” Siddharth told TOI in an interview.

Siddharth also says that he couldn’t have asked for a better film than Kammara Sambhavam as his first film in Malayalam. “There wasn’t anything specific I was looking for my debut but when I heard the script I wanted to feel that this has to be my first Malayalam film, because you only get one first film. So, when I met Murali and Rathish three years ago and they narrated the whole script to me, I was taken aback by the quality of the ambition. See, it’s good to be ambitious but then when you are ambitious with this kind of quality with the amount of research that has gone into the film, the kind of entertainment value it offers in terms of how the movie wants to make the audience feel, I was spellbound,” Siddharth added.

Siddharth has dubbed for himself in Malayalam and says that it has been one of the most challenging experiences in his career so far. “The best way of explaining it is, like I tweeted a few days ago. I feel like I studied the syllabus, wrote the exam and now I am waiting for the results. As somebody who works in multiple film industries, I have been quite blessed to get the opportunity to learn languages. The sad thing about this day and age is that the need to learn a new language is becoming less. To learn a classical language like Malayalam was a huge opportunity for me. Also, none of my films have had someone else dub for me so there was no question that I was not going to dub for my first Malayalam movie. It has been one of the most challenging experiences of my creative career. I have learnt new things every day,” the Boys actor added.
