Siddharth Gupta had made his debut in Bollywood with Ekta Kapoor’s film, Kuku Mathur Ki Jhand Ho Gayi, in 2014. How we wish Siddharth was really picked as Alladin, given the resemblance. Our source said, “This is completely false news. Twitterati is keeping their fingers crossed that Priyanka Chopra should be cast in Jasmine’s role. The particular actor (Siddharth Gupta) is not selected as Aladdin, and the search for an actor to play that part is still under process.”
So obviously Disney studios is still struggling to find an actor for their live action film, Aladdin. Earlier this morning a report stated that Hollywood director Guy Ritchie has finalised Siddharth Gupta for the pivotal role. But who is Siddharth Gupta?
We are now awaiting official announcement from Disney Studios for the cast of the film.
