Bagging films in the Hindi film industry isn't a cake walk, but whether or not the projects will contribute to an actor's rising career remain wavering. A fate of an actor is highly unpredictable until he gets woven into a creditable story. With the slew of projects, Sidharth Malhotra seems to have films, walking at his doorsteps.

As per the latest buzz, the actor has bagged Imran Khan's directorial debut Slingshot, which will be backed by Karan Johar. According to reports in a leading tabloid, the film is touted to be socio-political satire and the shooting for the same will commence soon.

However, the makers of the film are yet to announce the same officially and the leading lady of the film will be zeroed down soon.

Meanwhile, Sidharth Malhotra has an array of films in his kitty. He will be seen opposite Parineeti Chopra in Shotgun Shaadi which marks his second collaboration with the actress after Hasee Toh Phasee. The actor will also be seen as the Kargil warrior Captain Vikram Batra in his biopic, which will also star Kiara Advani as the leading lady of the film.

Moreover, Sidharth will be reprising his role in the second installment of Ek Villain which will be jointly produced by Ekta Kapoor and Karan Johar under their respective production banners. Except for Sidharth Malhotra, the film will feature fresh cast and the casting for the same is yet to get locked. The project is likely to be helmed by Mohit Suri who had directed the previous installment of the film.
