Siddharth already had three films in his kitty when he signed Chashme Baddoor, but he never made anyone compromise for his sake.
"Siddharth was shooting for other films as well when we shot Chashme Baddoor, but not once did it ever happen that he did not reach the sets on time. If the call time was 7 am, and he would not be in Goa, still he would manage to reach on time," Dhawan said in a statement.
"I never knew where he would be shooting. Sometimes he would be in Hyderabad, sometimes in Chennai. He is a very hardworking boy, I have known him since the last seven to eight years and he is like family to me," he added.
Chashme Baddoor, a remake of the 1981 comic caper of the same name, was largely shot in Goa, and then Mauritius. Siddharth used to shoot his part in Goa, and then fly down to the south for his other work commitments.
Produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, Chashme Baddoor also features Ali Zafar, Divyendu Sharma and Taapsee Pannu. The film hits theaters on April 5.
