During a conversation with ETimes, Sarim Momin said, “Once I was discussing a character with him (which I had cast him for) and we were brainstorming about the traits. The character was supposed to be a rock star who is stereotypically known to be ‘high.’ It was Siddhanth who had said ‘Let’s not unnecessarily show my character as someone who does drugs. It doesn’t send out a good message sir.'”
He also said, “As a director I’ve never experienced anything with Siddhanth that I’m reading about him today. He’s the most professional man I know and a thorough gentleman.”
For unversed, Sarim Momin and Siddhanth Kapoor worked in Khabees. The film also stars Tanisha Mukherjee and Bharat Dhabolkar. Sarin also directed Siddhanth in ASEQ, which stars Vardhan Puri, Sonnalli Seygall, and Adi Chugh.
While reports claimed that Siddhanth tested positive in drugs test as per Bengaluru police, his father Shakti Kapoor refutes the allegations. He said to Hindustan Times, “Yes, he is a DJ (disco jockey) and he plays at parties, and that’s what he was in Bengaluru for. I don’t know where are all these reports coming from. I will talk to my son very soon and know the details. But I know this can’t be true.”
