Siddharth, who holds an MBA from S P Jain Institute of Management, Mumbai, moved to Chennai to pursue his passion for films, thanks to his mentors P C Sriram and Jayendra.
Then he got a prize assignment -- assisting Mani Ratnam in Kannathil Muthamittal. While assisting Mani Ratnam that writer Sujatha and his wife got acquainted with Siddharth. They recommended him to Shankar, who was looking out for youngsters to act in Boys.
Though Siddharth got the unexpected break as an actor, he says his heart still lies in direction. “I am certainly very keen to be a writer/director. But I am also awaiting exciting acting work. How long acting manages to fuel my enthusiasm is anybody's guess.”
He is paired opposite Trisha Krishnan in the film.
