Siddharth Malhotra, the blue eyed boy of Dharma Productions, has been chosen to play the male lead in their remake of the hit French film Priceless. The film is about a waiter who’s mistaken for a millionaire by a gold-digger starred Audrey Tatou and Gad Elmaleh.
“The creative team at Dharma is really impressed by Siddharth’s turn in the upcoming Hasee Toh Phasee. They feel he’ll be perfect for Gad’s role. However, nothing is on paper yet,” said a source close to the film. The source also added that this project was taken up after the ambitious Dostana 2 was shelved. This film will be directed by Tarun Mansukhani, the director of Dostana.
While Karan Johar was unavailable to comment on it, Tarun Mansukhani, however, said “Presently, I’m shooting for a commercial and not working on anything else.”
Our source added, “They are reluctant to reveal the details as things are yet to be formalised.”
