For Bollywood`s current heartthrob SidharthMalhotra, ‘HaseeTohPhasee’ is not just a film title. He actually believes in the dictum and says the best way to impress girls is to “chase them” and “make them laugh”.
“Laughter always works, compliments work…so does being honest. Girls like it when you chase them. They like compliments. They like it when you use various means to get their attention,” Siddharth said.
The mantra is to keep your women happy, says the actor.
“I think for boys, if the girl laughs, it is a good thing. It means that the boy at least has a chance. All boys should try it…be it in a relationship or friendship, keep your girls happy,” he said.
Directed by Vinil Mathew ‘HaseeTohPhasee’ also stars Parineeti Chopra and promises to be much more than a regular romantic comedy.
“It is very high on content. It is a very intimate film. The characters are very different. I am playing a character who is stressed out, lost and sentimental. He meets this girl who is a bit cracked,” he said.
Sidharth made his acting debut with Karan Johar`s ‘Student Of The Year’ (SOTY) along with fellow debutants Alia Bhatt and VarunDhawan. The film enjoyed good success at the box office and the candyfloss romance was a sheer example of the grandeur and elegance of a film directed by Karan.
‘HaseeTohPhasee’, again produced by Karan, is however different from SOTY, said Sidharth.
Talking about his character, Sidharth said that he is “not a typical hero”.
“He is not so successful…he is under pressure and is the most stressed out character in the film,” he said.
“I don`t have family there. You miss hanging out with cousins and old school friends. You miss that comfort zone and support system,” he said, adding that he makes it a point to visit home “once every two months”.
The weather is another thing that attracts Sidharth.
