Siddhu is an upcoming Indian actor who made his debut in Uyire Uyire. Although they will not ask this question in a quizzing show, actress, and politician Jaya Prada is the mother of Siddhu. In fact, Jaya Prada hails from Rajamundhry, and she has done a lot of Hindi, Bhojpuri, and South Indian cinema projects as well. Jaya Prada was a Member of Parliament from Rampur constituency in the state of Uttar Pradesh. She is an active member of Mulayam Singh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party.

Jaya Prada decided to launch Siddhu as an actor when she announced to produce Uyire Uyire, a Tamil remake of Ishq (Telugu). In an interview with “The Hindu,” one of the leading publication houses in Tamil Nadu, Siddhu said that he is not alien to the world of entertainment. He used to accompany his mother to the film sets where she would be performing her roles. Siddhu liked Ishq so much that Jaya Prada opted to make its Tamil version and have Siddhu in it as the male protagonist.

Regardless of his knowledge of cinema, Siddhu admitted to being nervous during the early phase of shooting. It is surprising to know that his debut scene was to portray his character to profess his love to his girlfriend ( Hansika Motwani). Siddhu took twenty-one attempts to get it right. While he was filming a dance sequence with Hansika, Siddhu got shocked to see bystanders watching their work. As the days passed on, Siddhu became confident, and the actor gave his best.

Siddhu thanked his mother Jaya Prada and co-star Hansika Motwani for helping him whenever he faced difficulties. Jaya Prada advised him not to bother about the differences between a senior actress (Motwani) and a debutant (Siddhu). As a matter of fact, Jaya Prada’s Samajwadi Party colleague Amar Singh also co-produced Uyire Uyire.

It released on 1 April 2016. With the company like Eros International as the film’s distributor, Uyire Uyire is about two passengers who board a flight to Chennai. Due to technical problems, they land up in Goa where they start to have feelings for each other. Upon its release, critics did not give favorable reviews to Uyire Uyire. They questioned the decision of casting Siddhu as the lead character. In its evaluation, Hindustan Times has written that the producers could have opted for a better ‘jodi’ instead. Uyire Uyire failed to recover its budget from its run in the cinema halls.
