Last Updated: 01.13 PM, Nov 02, 2023


Sidhant Gupta has been awarded the male Breakthrough Performer of the Year at the OTTplay Awards 2023, which were announced on Sunday. The actor is recognized for his role in the web series, Jubilee. Sidhant plays an actor from the golden age in the series, which is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.

Here's all you need to know about Sidhant and Jubilee…

About the winner

Vikramaditya Motwane made his web series debut with a rather unique story in Jubilee. Starring Prosenjit Chatterjee, Aparshakti Khurana, Sidhant Gupta, Aditi Rao Hydari, Wamiqa Gabbi and Ram Kapoor in the lead roles, this one was about actors from the golden era. Set in the backdrop of a month before the India-Pakistan partition, the show unveils the dark truth behind the glamour industry. Sidhanth plays the role of Jay Khanna in the TV series.


Jubilee was lauded by the critics and viewers alike. The show unfolded beautifully and showed us a new side of not only the director but also all of the talented actors. Sidhant, especially, was lauded for his performance in the series and he became an overnight star.

Know Sidhant Gupta a little better

Sidhant has been working in movies since 2012. However, he was first recognized for his TV show Tashan-E-Ishq, which aired from 2015-2016. He then participated on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9 and within a year, appeared in Sanjay Dutt-Aditi Rao Hydari’s Bhoomi (2017).

Sidhant made his debut on the OTT space with Inside Edge season 3, which released in 2021. He was also seen as the lead performer in the theatrical release Operation Romeo, which was the Hindi remake of the Malayalam film, Ishq.

However, Sidhant’s real claim-to-fame happened in 2023, with his role as Jay in Jubilee. His character arc is one that shines out from the rest and Sidhant’s enthusiasm in playing it really speaks volumes of why he deserves the award.

A heartfelt gratitude, straight from the winner's heart

"It's an honour to be here. Thank you OTTplay for this award. A quick thank you to HT for all the beautiful awards and for giving me an entire front page in Hindustan Times. That made me feel worthy. Thank you. I want to thank here and out there, for (everyone) giving me all the love in abundance. It felt fulfilling," he said after receiving the award. 

"I want to thank Vikramaditya Motwane for being Vikramaditya Motwane. The genius that you are. Thank you for creating this magnificent world. Thank you even more for casting me," he added. 

Upcoming films/web series/project

Hailing from Jammu, Sidhant is yet to announce his next project. The actor’s last web series was Jubilee. He has not worked in the TV industry for a while and thus, it is likely that Sidhant might either pick up a film or a show next, or a combination of both. Either way, we cannot wait!
