Siddhant Kapoor: All about Christmas, angadias and demonetisation

Siddhant Kapoor has gotten into the mood for Christmas. The actor who is busy playing a don in ‘Haseena’ this season, Siddhant is nostalgic about the last Christmas when he was busy shooting as a courier boy in the Pia Sukanya directed ‘Bombairiya’. 
The ‘angadias’ form a Gujarati community of trusted couriers who used to carry high value items across the country. Spreading a word and sparing a thought for the ‘angadia’ people in the tiring times of demonetisation this Christmas, Siddhant Kapoor said, “I know quite a few of these guys personally and they must really be feeling the pinch as cash has totally dried up. Paid a minuscule
fraction of the value of what they are carrying and risking being robbed or harmed for the sheer pride of being a traditional angadia, many may be looking for alternative careers in the New Year. While we lucky few are placing orders for online delivery before Christmas, let's spare a thought for the ‘angadia’ whose traditional service to the diamond industry in particular goes back hundreds of years."  
Apart from Siddhant Kapoor, ‘Bombairiya’ also stars Radhika Apte, Akshay Oberoi, Adil Hussain, Ravi Kishan, Amit Sial and Shilpa Shukla. Currently in the post production stage, ‘Bombairiya’ is gearing up for an early 2017 release. 

Siddhant Kapoor has completed the shooting of ‘Bombairiya’ and is concentrating on working with sister Shraddha Kapoor in ‘Haseena’. The real life siblings are set to portray Haseena and Dawood Ibrahim on the silver screen.
