ennakul oruvan remake siddharthActor Siddharth has been treading cautiously over the last two years. Last year, He scaled new highs with a powerhouse performance in Jigarthanda but was crushed when period drama Kaaviya Thalaivan fell rather flat. But, he says, 2015 will determine if he is on the right track. First up, on March 6, is Enakkul Oruvan, a remake of the Kannada super hit Lucia, with first-time director Prasad Ramar and producer C.V. Kumar. Next up are films Siddharth is producing under his Etaki Entertainment banner. He hopes it’s going to be an eventful year.

Talking about Ennakul Oruvan, remake of Kannada hit Lucia, Siddharth says “It has shaped up well. I am delighted it is releasing when so many good films are waiting in the cans. He says the film, which will be soon dubbed in Telugu, has great content. After a long time, I occupy a lot of screen space. I can’t hide behind anyone or anything.” The film has redeemed the actor’s faith in himself. “It’s a new body language. The homework I put in is the boring, technical part. When it clicks, the hard work will bear fruit,” he said.

The year has also seen the actor battle personal crisis. “Personal turmoil affects people in all fields but, sadly, in the industry, not only do we deal with pain but also with public judgment.” As always, Siddharth banks on family to bail him out of the blues. And then, of course, there are his dogs Mowgli and Nori.
