Siddharth, happy birthday

The actor turns 34 today

Siddharth was born on April 17, 1979. He made his debut in 2002 with Shankar’s Boys, and his boyish looks and youthful charm still remain intact. No wonder then that his campus romance film Kaadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Eppadi (Love Failure in Telugu) turned out to be one of last year’s big hits.

It was the love for directing that lured Siddharth into films. He assisted Mani Ratnam on Kannathil Muthamittal before making his debut as an actor. Mani Ratnam’s Ayutha Ezhuthu was another of his memorable roles.

Siddharth is also remembered for his roles in the Telugu films, Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana and Bommarillu. His Bollywood break came in Rang De Basanti and this year he also bagged a plum role in Midnight’s Children. Siddharth’s career is certainly on the upswing with two big films on the way – Udhayam NH4 and Theeya Velai Seyyanum Kumaru.

On the personal front, the whispers are growing louder that he and Samantha are an item. We’ll have to wait and see if Siddharth’s single status changes this year.

Meanwhile, here’s wishing the actor a very happy birthday.
