My dad never wanted me to join Bollywood: Filmmaker Siddharth Anand | Hindi Movie News


Having directed movies like Salaam Namaste, Ta Ra Rum, Pum and Bachna Ae Haseeno, filmmaker Siddharth Anand is now trying his hands at judging the dance reality show Dance India Dance Li’l Master. “I am enjoying my stint as a judge on the reality show and since it is a kid’s reality show, I am loving it more as I too am a father. So even though I might know the dance techniques as much, I definitely know how to deal with kids, which is a plus point. I am too good with kids and that is what is helping me on the show,” said Siddharth, who was in Lucknow, recently.
Siddharth has been born and brought up in a filmy atmosphere with his dad, Bittu Anand, being a well-known film producer and his grandfather Inder Raj Anand, a screenwriter. “Since my father knew the industry quite well and was aware how risky a career in it is, he never wanted me to join Bollywood. He always advised me to pursue studies and wanted me to become a Charted Accountant,” shared Siddharth, adding, “I did go to buy the form of CA, but the queue was so long that I came back home without purchasing it. I continued with my studies but somehow convinced my dad to let me pursue my Bollywood dream of becoming a director. I started assisting filmmaker Rahul Rawail for Kuch Khatti Kuch Meethi, but before the movie could release, my dad expired. After my dad’s demise, I left studies completely and joined Bollywood.”
