Sidharth Malhotra is a shy actor, not much buzz around his name, and his acting skills says the same too. However he is gradually evolving as an actor and indeed is on his path to make it big! Before his big break with Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year, Sid never really believed that he could be an actor. With his father working in the Merchant Navy and his being a service class family, the dream of being a Bollywood star was just not good to be true for him. But fate said otherwise.
Sid talks about how the things changed when he saw the legendary movie Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. ‘Tujhe Dekha to’ song meant SRK poses and making his family laugh at his actions! Well did they ever know what their son will turn out to be? They were never really serious about Sidharth’s dream to be an actor and did not imagine him to turn out one some day.
Sid admits that he was more into sports and that dramas or anything related to the theatre was so not him once upon a time. But definitely his gig on the DDLJ dance turned tables for him. All was for a reason no doubt! One thing led to another and after his successful modelling career, we finally saw him in Student Of The Year. He also worked as an assistant director with buddy Varun Dhawan for the movie My Name Is Khan.
Meanwhile we all await his upcoming movie A Gentleman with Jacqueline Fernandez. The movie releases on August 25, 2017.
