Producer Siddharth Malhotra has always tried to walk the path less travelled as content maker, with experimentation being a key in his works on TV!!
Haasil, the huge show made under his banner Alchemy Films for Sony TV, came with a classy look and feel with popular actors from the small and big screen being involved!!
However, the show is now all set to close down, and we talked to Producer Siddharth Malhotra on his thoughts.
Says Malhotra, “We are glad to have made a show as classy as Haasil. Nobody will tell that it was a badly made show. I went with my conviction and I am glad I stuck to the original format, and did not intend to do the usual stuff. Agreed, few experiments do not get lapped up by the audience. They preferred to see the drama-rich Laado and Kumkum Bhagya. Having said this, few of the urban audience did watch Haasil and enjoyed the run. I would like to thank my team of writers and actors for doing a great job. Haasil had a great team and we enjoyed making it.”
Siddharth P.Malhotra is presently busy with his movie Hichki starring Rani Mukherjee.
Answering media reports of him having let go his shows, Woh Apna Saa and Haasil owing to his big screen commitments, the Producer states, “There is nothing like this. In fact, I am seen in channels everyday even now, as we are pitching new concepts. The decision to opt out of Woh Apna Saa was a sheer financial decision and nothing more. If we had continued to make the show under the hike channel gave us, we were sure to lose money. Hence we moved out of it, while the channel decided to go ahead with another maker. Why will I ever let go of a show which I have made? Woh Apna Saa was a set show with good numbers. Above all, TV has made me what I am today, and I will never leave TV for films. In fact, Hichki is in its promotion stage and there is no need for me to take leave from TV to release the movie.”
On future ideas and thoughts, Malhotra states, “We are working on few concepts, both for TV and web.”
Wish you all the best, Mr. Producer!!
