Is Sidharth Malhotra going to play gay in Shakun Batra’s next?

After the news of Vikramaditya Motwane’s ‘Bhavesh Joshi’ getting shelved broke out, Shakun Batra quickly roped in Sidharth Molhatra for his next project.

Shakun Batra had earlier directed romantic comedy ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’ and now his next project is discussed to be a coming-out film. The film is supposedly about two brothers coming from a dysfunctional family where one of the brothers turns out to be gay.

According to a news report by DNA, a source revealed, “Sidharth’s dates are available from April onwards with ‘Bhavesh Joshi’ shelved. Arjun Kapoor and Fawad Khan are front-runners to play the parallel lead. Between the two, the part might go to the former, if negotiations work out. Female leads are being worked out.”

So, while Sidharth is taken on board, it is not yet decided who would be playing the role of his brother. And we can only assume that Sidharth is going to play the gay character as the source reported, “Sid has a fantastic role in this film and it will give him an opportunity to showcase his versatility.”

Are you eager to see Sidharth in a gay role and who would you like to see play his brother?
