Siddharth opened up concerning the portrayal of non-Hindi talking characters in our movies with an interview to Indian Express.“From the age of comedians, (we had) actors like Mehmood, who made unrealistic and strange portrayals which were very popular at that time. But today, you feel odd watching them. There was Mithun Chakraborty playing some Krishnan Iyer and selling coconut water. In those days liberties were taken in the name of entertainment. All these are cliches. That’s not how people speak. Today, if I do anything like that to a Kannada or a Kashmiri character, social media will have a field day,” he mentioned.
