Sidharth Malhotra is reading scripts — like tons of them. Sitting in his makeup room, facing the brightly lit mirror, Sid has his head ducked into a stack of spiral-bound scripts. And he is not suffering from abibliophobia.
What's that now, you ask? Abibliophobia is the fear of running out of reading material. And if you are sitting there wondering if the ghost of Shashi Tharoor has poor ol' Sid under its influence, join the party.
Sidharth teased us last evening with a glimpse of an upcoming project. "No ‘Abibliophobia’ here! #ScriptReading #ActorsLife #WaitForIt," he wrote on Instagram. But what struck us was his caption, particularly his choice of words.
Now we know that actors often undergo extensive training and workshops to fit into a character they are to play on screen. We've heard of diction classes, horse riding lessons, dance training. And since our rational mind is unable to accept the ghost of Shashi Tharoor idea, we wonder if Sid's new and improved vocab is part of his prep for a role?
We guess we will have to #WaitForIt to find out.
