Siddharth embarks on a ‘scary’ journey

Siddharth, mostly known for featuring in Telugu and Tamil films, says the idea of making his next film “The House Next Door” was to come up with a pure horror movie without diluting it with comedy, sex or songs.

Siddharth, who is also one of the producers, was asked about the challenges he faced while making it. “The big challenge in this film was being honest about ourselves. Over the years, horror genre got diluted. Someone includes comedy or sex or songs in it, so with this film, the idea was to make a pure horror film,” the actor said at the trailer launch of the film.

“Quite often, after seeing the trailer of the film, people get an idea about the entire film, but another challenge was what to show in the trailer and what to retain in the film. So even after seeing the trailer, the audience will not get a clear picture of the plot of this film because this film offers much more than its trailer,” he added.

The trailer launch was also attended by actors Andrea Jeremiah, Anisha Victor and Atul Kulkarni, who was last seen with Siddharth in the 2006 blockbuster “Rang De Basanti”. Directed by Milind Rau, “The House Next Door” releases on November 3.
