Kabir Singh writers Siddharth-Garima are facing trouble finding an actress for their first directorial

With the audience starting to accept all kinds of content in cinema nowadays, a lot of options for creative people have opened up. Writers Siddharth and Garima are taking advantage of this golden opportunity and planning to turn directors. The jodi, who has written for films like Ram LeelaBatti Gul Meter Chalu and the latest superhit, Kabir Singh, spoke to us about this new step that they are taking and what their first film will be about.  Siddharth said, “We are going to direct very soon. There is one subject we want to work on as it is very close to our heart. We feel that the writer is the first surrogate and so the film is on surrogacy. We feel that we write our scripts and give them to a director to make.”

Divulging details, Siddharth said, “I think the project should begin this year. We are finalising our actors. We have a couple of options, but we need to weigh them and figure it out. We have approached everybody, but since it has that angle of getting pregnant, most of our heroines say that ‘There is no glamour in it, you have to get pregnant and you don’t look good’. They have their apprehensions and so it’s been difficult casting for the film.”

He added, “There is another film, a subject on which a lot has been already done - it is about honour killing, but a different take. It’s a violent love story, more in the space of Ram Leela, but we can say that it is a step ahead of that film.”
