He studied at DAV Boys' Senior Secondary School, Chennai and Sardar Patel Vidyalaya, Delhi. He graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce (Honors) degree from Kirori Mal College, New Delhi. Siddharth was part of the reputed theatre group of the college, The Players. He was also president of the college's debating society and attended the World Debating Championships. He went on to complete his MBA in 2001 from S. P. Jain Institute of Management and Research, Mumbai. He was exceptionally bright regarding his speaking skills, which ultimately led him to win CNBC Manager of the year award in 1999.

Siddharth has stated that direction was his "ultimate dream". After finishing his education at age 21, Siddharth landed the role of assistant director for Mani Ratnam's Kannathil Muthamittal. The script writer of that film, Sujatha, was insistent that Siddharth auditioned for S. Shankar's Boys which would feature five debutant actors. After consulting with Mani Ratnam, he met Shankar, auditioned, and got the role of Munna. The film was a moderate success in Tamil but the dubbed version in Telugu gave Siddharth an opening in the Telugu film industry. Siddharth then appeared in another Tamil film, Mani Ratnam's Aayutha Ezhuthu (2004), after which he would shift focus and concentrate on Telugu-language projects. His first direct Telugu project, Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana released in early 2005. The comedy-drama film, marking the directorial debut of choreographer-turned-actor Prabhu Deva, became a commercial blockbuster as well as a critical success. He next debuted in Bollywood as part of the critically acclaimed blockbuster Rang De Basanti which also starred Aamir Khan. Siddharth received the Star Screen Debut Award for his role as Karan Singhania in the film. Siddharth's final release of 2006 was Bommarillu, directed by then newcomer Bhaskar. The film, revolving around a father-son relationship, received critical acclaim and garnered box office success, too. He worked with director Vishal Bhardwaj and Oscar winning cinematographer Guillermo Navarro on a short film titled Blood Brothers, which premiered at the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival as part of Mira Nair's AIDS Jaago project.

Actor Siddharth started his production house, Etaki Entertainment, in 2012. His first production venture was the bilingual project, Love Failure (Telugu), Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Yeppadi (Tamil).
