You saw him roar on the screen with his thundering performance in Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy starring Ranveer Singh.

We met with the actor recently and had brought to you our full chat with the talented actor, where he spoke about his aspirations, his struggles and more. One of the topics which we also touched upon was about his way ahead in the industry.
After bagging lead roles in films by two biggest production houses of Bollywood, is Siddhant open to playing supporting roles still? And here's actor's honest confession (watch video above from 04:55-05:55).
"I never expressed it, but I always wanted to be a hero, the protagonist, I found my way to this place, my little tunnel to get here, so from now on I want to only concentrate on my dream," said Siddhant. We concluded, 'Of playing lead roles?' and he agreed, "Yes, will be looking for only lead roles now."
Meanwhile, he also spoke about how because of being an outsider, Siddhant didn’t have it easy in films.The actor said, “They thought I was very unconventional, with tiny eyes, curly hair, not the hero types. So, stereotyping is a thing in casting. They used to stereotype me to be from Delhi, Haryana. Nobody thought that I could be one from the streets, like I was in Gully Boy or I could be a boy from a rural village like I was in the Inside Edge.��
Coming to Siddhant's honest confession of only looking at lead roles, well, his fans can't be happier to see all of him in a film.
