Looks like Sidharth Malhotra, who sported a rough and tough look in "Brothers", has shed off his extra kilos to fit into his role in Nitya Mehra's next.

The hunk, who recently started shooting for the film, took to his Twitter handle to share a glimpse of his first day's shoot.

Titled "Baar Baar Dekho", the film will see Sidharth and Katrina Kaif romancing each other for the first time.

Initially, the film was supposed to go on floors in June, but due to Sidharth and Katrina's dates being unavailable, the shoot was pushed to August, reported Deccan Chronicle.

"Baar Baar Dekho" marks Mehra's directorial debut. She had earlier worked as an assistant director in several films, including "Life of Pi", "Don" and "The Namesake".

Backed by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani's production banner Excel Entertainment, "Baar Baar Dekho" is scheduled to be released in 2016.

Meanwhile, the "Student of the Year" actor is riding high with the success of his latest release "Brothers" that also stars Akshay Kumar. He is also shooting for "Kapoor and Sons" opposite rumoured girlfriend Alia Bhatt.
