Mumbai, Jan. 16 -- Sidharth Malhotra, who is only three films old in the industry, wishes to take a break from the kind of roles he has done so far, and step into a sports personality's shoes.
While biopics like Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013) and Mary Kom (2014), among others, celebrate popular Indian athletes, the actor, too, wants to play a sportsperson in a film.
"Sidharth feels there is a lot of potential for an actor to learn new things because there are many elements in a sportsperson's life that can be showcased," says a source close to the actor.
When contacted, Siddharth, who has "always loved sports" and has been "active in such activities since childhood" said, "There are so many interesting sportsmen whose stories are untold. I would love to be part of a biopic on such a person."
