Delivering a hit doesn’t always mean that producers will be knocking at your door, as director Siddharth Anand found out. After Bang Bang, the filmmaker didn’t bag any juicy projects and was twiddling his thumbs. Anand was set to collaborate with Prernaa Arora’s production house for a film and had also taken a large signing amount for it but the movie never went on floors as no star was prepared to work with him. Even his other film, a sports biopic, was almost shelved because he couldn’t rope in any actors.
But now the tables have turned – and how! Ever since Yash Raj Films signed Anand to direct their upcoming Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff-starrer, the director has been inundated with projects. Not only is his project with Arora back on track with a star in place, but his sports film too has actors who have signed up. Looks like this second wind is proving to be lucky for Siddharth Anand.
