Siddharth’s boyish charm defies the serious man that he is. Beneath the façade lie many layers. I confessed that I knew little about cinema and how it works to my advantage as I am seldom in awe of the personality I have to photograph. “Good you didn’t watch any of my work. Else, you might have not even invited me for this shoot.”
Siddharth, with his intense eyes and a flirty smile, is great at conversations.
He is an actor, yes, but he’s also a management graduate, a movie buff, a dog lover, an art connoisseur… the list goes on. I was curious to know more about the artists he likes, in reply to which he had an unending list, which included his mother. “She created me,” he said, with a smile.
On the studio floor, he was busy teasing my girls who were holding the reflectors. He knew they were in awe of him.
“Why are you taking so many passport pictures of me?” he asked them. And then, I suddenly asked him the question he hates the most: “Wassup bro?” We knew we had our shot.
