Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez are set to create a sizzling chemistry in the sequel of "Bang Bang." The recent buzz is that "NH10" actor Darshan Kumaar will be seen as a villain in the film, which is being helmed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK.

Sidharth and Darshan will be seen fighting with each other in the film. "Sidharth and Darshan play friends-turned-foes who are part of the same gang and clash due to their conflicting personalities. Darshan is currently prepping for his stylised look in the film," Mumbai Mirror quoted a source as saying.

Darshan had earlier impressed audience with his brilliant performance in a negative role in Anushka Sharma-starrer "NH10." He had also showed his acting talent in Omung Kumar's "Mary Kom," in which he appeared as Priyanka Chopra's husband. He will be seen in another Omung's film – "Sarbjit." Darshan plays a Pakistani lawyer's character in Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Randeep Hooda's film.

In other news, the shooting of Sidharth and Jacqueline-starrer has started and interestingly, the team of the untitled film call it as "Not Bang Bang 2." In fact, Sidharth has earlier clarified at an event that the action movie has nothing to do with Hrithik Roshan's "Bang Bang."

Meanwhile, Sidharth recently wrapped up "Baar Baar Dekho" shoot, which has Katrina Kaif in the female lead role. Produced by Ritesh Sidhwani, Karan Johar and Farhan Akhtar, "Baar Baar Dekho" has been directed by debutant Nitya Mehra.

The Sri Lankan beauty also has action adventure film "Dishoom," which will hit the theatres on July 29.
