Writer-director Nandini Reddy, who is busy wrapping up her second Telugu film romantic-comedy “Jabardasth”, says Siddharth is one of the few actors in the industry with great comic sense. She even compares him to Hollywood actor Jim Carrey.
“I wouldn’t hesitate to call him the Jim Carrey of Telugu film industry. He is one of the few actors to have a great knack for comedy and working with him is fun on and off the sets as well,” Reddy told IANS.
“Jabardasth”, releasing Feb 21, also features Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Sri Hari, Sunil Varma, Nithya Menen, Vennela Kishore and Thagubothu Ramesh.
“Samantha and Siddharth make a great pair on screen. The film is an out-and-out comedy entertainer and the chemistry between them worked completely in favour of it. I let them be themselves and didn’t try to tamper with their roles,” she added.
The film is produced by Bellam Konda Suresh, and S.S Thaman has composed its music.
Meanwhile, Siddharth is busy juggling three Tamil films – “Udhayam NH4”, “Theeya Velai Seiyyanum Kumaru” and a film with Vasanthabalan.
