Siddharth Malhotra, who made his debut last year with 'Student Of The Year' (SOTY), was undoubtedly the hottest debutant and has a crazy girl fan following.
However, the new chocolate boy in the industry will be seen breaking this mould in his very next film, 'The Villain', a romantic-action thriller.
According to our sources, the young handsome is currently being re-styled compared to his look in SOTY. The makers want him to look tough, mean and with mild stubble, with ample display of brawn and so there are various looks being tried on him. Moreover, different hairdos are also on the cards.
The film, which showcases Siddharth as the next angry young man with a heart, is set in Mumbai.
Balaji and Mohit Suri are keen to position him as the quintessential mass hero.
Stated source, "Siddharth's look is been worked upon right now. There are look test which are happening. He will be seen in a different genre of film and hence his look is of uttermost important."
It is said that they have tried 8-10 looks... However, they are yet trying to sketch the perfect one.
In fact, Suri, who is synonymous for most of the music hits that come out of the Bhatt camp, will also be working on some brilliant tunes for Sid, on the lines of what he had done for Emraan Hashmi's mass appeal in 'Kalyug', 'Raaz-2', 'Awarapan' and 'Murder-2'.
It seems like, the best of all worlds is coming together for Siddharth.
