'I'm the SRK of Telugu films'

“I do a lot of romantic roles in Telugu films. In fact when people say you are the Aamir Khan of Telugu films, I say I am the Shah Rukh Khan of the film industry. I do all the Tujhe dekha toh ye jaana sanam type of sequences in Telugu,” Siddharth said.

“I do romantic movies as my mainstay and when I want to change my mood, I do a Striker or a Rang De Basanti. Now that I have done a serious film like Striker, I need to go back to my strengths and do a romantic film,” said Siddharth, who has done Telugu films like Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana and Bommarillu.

At the same time, the actor, who played the intense Karan Singhania in Rang De Basanti and a Mumbai-based carrom player in crime thriller Striker, stressed that doing romantic roles is not a cakewalk.

“I find romantic films, which are on a lighter vein in Telugu, as challenging as serious dramatic films in Hindi - both are equally tough. The important thing is that you have to find a nice script and I think Striker was one of the nicest scripts I have read in my career because I found it a very realistic film.

“My next Hindi film would be a more light-hearted one. I wanted to do a light-hearted one for now because when you do a serious role, you need to come out of it. I want to give as much time as I can to Hindi,” he said.
