Sidharth Malhotra

Actor, Model

Dashing Young Man

He's the dashing young man that has all of Bollywood under his spell. Sidharth Malhotra is the new age actor, a model known for his sex appeal and brooding characters. Since his debut in 2012, he's essayed different genre films like comedy, action, and romantic drama. Sid has impressed everyone with his versatility and is one of the top leading actors in Bollywood.

Early Romantic Relations

Sidharth Malhotra has always been a man of heart and romance. He's been in many relationships throughout different periods of his life. When he was in school, he had his first kiss in class 5th!!! During college's first year, he was in love with a girl who didn't go his way.

Nowadays, he's been linked with many actresses, but everything has been quite a hush hush. He was regularly linked up with Alia Bhatt, but now they've broken off. There have been rumors floating everywhere about his relationship with Kiara Advani. They've denied it, but one can regularly see them cozying up with one another. Sidharth Malhotra has always maintained that he wants to focus on his career and doesn't have time for romance per se.

Salman Khan's Rejection

Sidharth Malhotra is considered one of the most good-looking actors in the industry. Shockingly when Sid was trying to get into the industry, Salman bhai told him that his face was best suited for TV and not for movies. Even though he was told to give up by such a big actor, he kept on grinding to make it.

So is there a cold war brewing between these two? Not really they both are on very good terms and are supportive of one another. When Salman Khan watched Ek Villain, he was so impressed by his performance that he gifted him a watch. Sid has a lot of respect for Salman, and he's gone to Bigg Boss to promote the show. They've wanted to work with one another, and at one point, he was going to be in Race 3.

Learning On The Set

Sidharth Malhotra remembers coming from Delhi to Mumbai and struggling in the new city. He's had to sleep on the couch in offices, living the suitcase life when money was extremely tight. He had done modeling, but it quickly became monotonous for Sid, and he wanted to pursue his love of acting.

Malhotra found his way through doing odd jobs and being the assistant director on Movies. Many might know that he was an AD on the set of My Name Is Khan, but he's done other stints too. He was the clapper on the set of R.A. One was on the set when the Desi Girl video was being shot. Sid recalls the experience of being on set as being formative years of his life. He recalled being a wide-eyed kid on the sets overwhelmed by the large sets, actors, etc.

Clearing Up The Misconceptions

Many have levied or speculated that he's an insider or related to Manish Malhotra. The truth is that while they have a similar surname, both are not at all related to one another. There are also criticisms levied that there's favoritism when it comes to him by Karan Johar. It is an absurd accusation when you consider that the whole industry works on favoritism. Even to impress a big producer takes a lot of hard work and talent.

Sidharth is a complete outsider that has made it into the industry due to his hard work and talent.

Malhotra's Chocolate Addiction

Sid has an extremely tight and rigorous lifestyle regime to stay in that insane shape he is. However, there is one thing he can't resist is some yummy hot chocolate. During his young years, Sid used to ask for money from granny for something else and then use it to buy hot chocolate. He's gone off even to say that he can work extra hard in the gym but can't give up his addiction. We completely understand his love and can't resist it ourselves.

Sidharth Malhotra is an actor that has had a rough couple of years in movies. He's had a string of failures; however, he's now back on top with Shershaah. He's managed to impress everyone with his latest outing and makes us go Yeh Dil Maange More! For more Sid movies.
