Jr. Mallya in Q’s next


Kolkata: Sidharth Mallya, son of famous Vijay Mallya will feature in Q’s next flick is a well known fact among cine-lovers. Though details of this international production, which has both an Indian and a British team working on it, has been neatly kept under the wraps, Siddharth Mallya will play the prime adversary of the film’s lead, played by Shashank Arora.

While the English film, B Naman, will see Shashank as the protagonist, Sid is playing the role of Ronnie, his arch rival. Shashank was first seen in a character role in the indie film Myoho. He next played the lead in Kanu Behl’s Titli, which was part of the Official Selection, at the Cannes International Film Festival (2014). Sid, on his part, is making his debut with this movie, based on the lives of quizzers in the ’80s.

Q, who shot for three weeks in Bangalore, where the film is based, has tent up in the outskirts of Kolkata for the past seven days. B Naman is a comedy and Q’s first attempt in the genre. The director, who is known for films like Gandu and Tasher Desh, said, “The shooting is on the verge of completion. Both Shashank and Sid have done their best and look the parts.”
