Dileep to act in Sidharth Bharathan’s next

Popular Malayalam actor Dileep is all set to play the lead in the next film project of actor-director Sidharth Bharathan. Sidharth has revealed in an interview recently that Dileep has been finalized as the lead actor in his next venture. However he is yet to decide the other cast members. The film’s shooting will start by January next year (2015). Dileep’s last release, ‘Villali Veeran’ has faced controversies, due to some contents in the film that are being seen as offensive towards Buddhism. Dileep has tasted box office success with all of his recent releases. However he is also facing criticism for repeatedly doing only ‘masala’ films. This has compelled Dileep to announce that soon he will be seen in a doing an acting oriented role that will satisfy the more demanding audience.

The debut of Sidharth Bharathan as a director was in 2012 with the film ‘Nidra’, a remake of the 1981 film that also had the same title. The film was directed by Bharathan, his father. Sidharth also played the male lead in the film while Rima Kallingal played the female lead. While ‘Nidra’ was praised by critics, it failed at the box office. Sidharth also earned praise for his direction.
