Filmy Sansaar – The first question is, did you watch Aladdin as a kid?
Siddharth – Yes, I watched Aladdin as a kid. Since childhood till now, Aladdin is one of my favourite characters. I am playing that very role, so it is a good thing.
Filmy Sansaar – Being Aladdin is a dream for any kid, how do you feel being Aladdin on Sony Sab?
Siddharth – I feel very happy, very excited. For me, it is something very interesting and new. Playing Aladdin is an opportunity for me to showcase my talent through the character of Aladdin. Everyone knows Aladdin all over world.
Filmy Sansaar – Tell us about your experience of acting in an epic like Aladdin?
Siddharth – My prior experiences include portraying intense, angry and versatile characters. But this character of Aladdin is very different, quite different from the characters I’ve played already. I will get to learn a lot of things. I get to learn from every show. Every day, I get to learn something new and I am improvising on my scenes, so that people from all across the world talk about Aladdin.
Filmy Sansaar – So did you undertake any workshops to prepare for the role?
Siddharth – Yes, because it was becoming a bit difficult for me – the lines and the comic timing. The best part is that the lines and the show’s screenplay is very interesting. Even if you are not doing anything and just saying those lines, you will find it funny. So, while the workshops were on, we used to read the lines and laugh among ourselves. It was fun. Our director is really good. He is a good man. He notices each and everything. In Aladdin, all the reactions and actions are genuine. There won’t be any unnecessary comedy. There are rhymes and the dialogues themselves have quirkiness and smartness. It took time to get a hang of it all, but the workshops that our director had given us for 2 weeks, the results and need of which I understand now, really helped.
Filmy Sansaar – What do you have to say about your set?
Siddharth – Our set is grand as any epic show’s setting. The best part is that our cast is amazing. Where people are nice, everything is nice.
