Sidharth Malhotra just dropped the first teaser of his new film A Gentleman, co-starring Jacqueline Fernandez. The teaser reveals that Sidharth stars in the titular role but there’s a twist in the tale. He is the gun-holding, rule-breaking gentleman, who has also been described as: “sundar, susheel and risky.” On Twitter, Sidharth introduced his new onscreen persona with the bio: “Get ready to meet the Sundar, Susheel, Risky me.” Meanwhile, his Jacqueline tweeted: “All set for a sundar, susheel and risky gentleman?” Jacqueline Fernandez also makes an appearance in the animation like teaser of the film. She undoubtedly plays the Gentleman’s love interest in the film. Sidharth and Jacqueline have also co-starred in Akshay Kumar’s Brothers.
