Actor Siddharth, who is known for his performances in south Indian and Hindi films, recently revealed an interesting piece of information on Twitter. The actor said that he was often referred to as 'Swara Bhasker of the south' by the Hindi speaking crowd on social media platforms. This comparison comes as no surprise as both Swara and Siddharth are two of the most vocal celebrities, with regard to politics and social issues.

She's awesome and a cutie."

Reacting to the banter, many users applauded the duo on their fearless takes on socio-political issues. One user said, "Both of you are awesome. In the worst of times, we still have people who are risking things to make theirs and others voice heard. It helps with that fear we feel when we raise our voice."

Siddharth, who became a household name with Rakesh Omprakash Mehra's 'Rang De Basanti', was also compared to the character that he played in the cult film. One comment read, "You are a real hero of the country, Siddharth. You are also showing citizens how to practically live and fight with the establishment with Rang de Basanti idealism."

"For Hindi speaking junta, you would be remembered as "Bhagat Singh" (Rang De Basanti) till eternity. Much regards n lots of power to you bro," said another user.

Siddharth, who made his debut with the 2003 hit 'Boys', has made a mark as an actor and producer in Telugu and Tamil film industries. He is best known for his work in films such as 'Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana', 'Rang De Basanti', 'Striker' and 'Bommarillu'. He will soon be seen in 'Navarasa' and 'Maha Samudram' among other films.
