Sidharth Malhotra, who is currently preparing for the release of the action thriller series Indian Police Force, marking his debut in the OTT realm has opened up about the intriguing prospect of stepping into the shoes of a negative lead once again.

In a conversation as part of the Pinkvilla masterclass, the SherShaah star, joined by Rohit Shetty, Shilpa Shetty, and Vivek Oberoi to discuss their upcoming series, was queried about his willingness to portray an antagonist in his movies, harking back to his role in the 2014 film Ek Villain.

Malhotra shared, "Yeah. I think but in Ek Villain, at its core, the character had a good motivation even though it was a very aggressive character doing wrong things in his past. But his present journey was because of a love story.”

He added, Because of an emotional reason. It was my third film. It was more challenging and more daunting back then, to portray a more silent, brooding character.”

The 38-year-old actor went on to say, “At present, I'm not averse to it. It's something that I am also possibly looking. So it's up to the writers and director. If something interesting comes up, of course. Why not?”

During the interview, Sidharth Malhotra explained his inclination towards portraying real-life heroes and expressed that he finds these characters particularly fascinating.

He discussed, "When you play characters that you have seen or heard of in real life, and when they are doing something very heroic and something very thrilling, it makes for nice Hindi film entertainment.”

Malhotra continued, “I find that watch very interesting. I like parts of geo-politics, and I like real-life missions when I see documentaries. Not that any of the films is a version of that. Maybe Shershaah was one. But it's a great mix.”
