In today’s television world, Siddharth Nigam is a big star. He has starred in a number of well-known series including Ashoka, Aladdin, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, and Baal Veer Returns. If that wasn’t enough, he has appeared in several music videos alongside models Jannat Zubair, Ashi Singh and Anushka Sen, to name a few. But Aamir Khan’s star Dhoom 3 was the pinnacle of his career.
Siddharth played young Aamir in Dhoom 3 for the uninitiated. He was not only instantly famous, but he was also inundated with offers for other films. He turned down roles like Varun Dhawan’s Judwaa 2 because he didn’t want to be called a “child actor in the movies”.
However, did you know? Siddharth Nigam couldn’t afford to travel to Mumbai for Dhoom 3 auditions because he didn’t have enough money? In fact, the actor was about to lose the photo for the same reason. But it was YRF and Shanoo Sharma who transformed her life for the better and in significant ways!
Siddharth Nigam told E! Times: “I had done an advertisement and my mom got a call directly from Yash Raj Films. We never knew about YRF or Shanoo Sharma. I knew Dhoom and Dhoom 2. When she got the call saying they were from this or that production, my mom got scared and disconnected the phone. Mumbai was like London or America to me. Then we looked up the names from where we had it got the call. Then she called back. We told them we didn’t have that much money to go to Mumbai for an appearance test.
He continued, “The plan then went on the back burner. But a month later, we got a call again for the same movie. They called us in Mumbai and made arrangements for our accommodation. In Mumbai we met Shanoo Sharma and they loved me as I took the look test. I sincerely thank the production house for everything they did for me during the making of Dhoom 3. It wasn’t just a movie set for me, but family for me.
Not everyone is lucky enough to Siddharth Nigam! We wish him good luck all the time.
