His elder brother is a banker by profession. Siddharth’s parents wanted him to become an engineer, but Siddharth wasn’t competent with studies and was more into sports in his schooling days. Siddharth even played Rugby for a club in his college days.
The Bollywood Buzz
It is believed that Manish Malhotra, the infamous fashion designer introduced Siddharth to Karan Johar, where he was appointed as an assistant director in 2010. He also signed a film with the director, Anubhav Sinha which was later shelved. The director was inclined towards the making of Shah Rukh Khan Starrer Ra.One. Siddharth worked as a clapper boy for that film. It was a high possibility of him making a debut in the national award winner Fashion opposite Priyanka Chopra. But due to his contract with the Gladrags mega-model competition, he couldn’t sign that film.
Karan Johar launched Malhotra opposite Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan for Student of the year. The film earned him his first Filmfare nomination. Malhotra was amused by a 17 year Alia who he found to be funny and entertaining. Siddharth was fantastic in the film according to the critics. He conveyed emotions with precision and was very particular with his comic timings. The film did well at the box office and laid a healthy platform for all three debutants.
Making his mark
After a blistering debut in 2012, Siddharth appeared opposite Parineeti Chopra in Hasee Toh Phasee. The film was a moderate success but Siddharth made his presence felt in the film with immaculate acting flair. Ek Villain concreted his presence in the Bollywood as one of the rising superstars of the new generation. The film was a box office success and fared well with the audiences and the critics.
Varun played the brother of Akshay Kumar in the Bollywood remake of the movie Warrior. The movie was a major flop, and couldn’t perform according to its generated hype. Varun then went on to act in Kapoor and Sons opposite Alia Bhatt and Fawad Khan. The film was critically applauded and made decent money at the box office. Varun recently played the love interest of Katrina Kaif in Baar Baar Dekho. The couple seemed to soar the temperatures on screen with the sizzling chemistry they shared between them. The film though couldn’t make an impact on the audiences.
There are three projects lined up for the handsome actor. He will be seen again, sharing the screen with his real time girlfriend Alia Bhatt for Aashiqui 3. Also, he has a filmed lined up with Sonakshi Sinha and another action comedy with Jacqueline Fernandes

Far From Controversies, But Not So Far
Sidharth has maintained a low-key in the industry since his inception. That leaves him up with very fewer controversies. The ultimate chic-magnet has just been in the rumors for dating his extremely beautiful co-stars. From Alia to smoking hot Katrina, he is linked with beautiful and extremely talented ladies. Now that’s far from being a controversy.
Here’s a list of controversies Siddharth Malhotra has fallen prey for.
Siddharth Malhotra Controversies
- Suing his fan for 10 crores
Siddharth Malhotra sued his two fans for 10 crore rupees. His two fans, also residents of Delhi sold merchandise under the actor’s name. After he found out about the fake fan club, he sent a legal notice to the duo and his fans sadly had to pay a wholesome 10 crore for defaming and falsely selling good’s under the actor’s name.
- The Comments on Madhuri Dixit
The beautiful actress was left red-faced when Siddharth commented on a talk show that he’d like to take Madhuri Dixit to bed. Too bad for a quirky comment on a married and a senior actress. Not a comment that’d amuse our Dhak Dhak girl.
- The Kissing Saga
The irresistible actor has locked lips on screen with many of his co-stars. He confessed that kissing a teenage Alia in Student of the Year was boring. And also, he showed interest in kissing Deepika on-screen. Hope his dreams come true and we witness another steamy lip-lock in mere future.
- Alia, Alia and more Alia
Ever since his debut, the actor and the daughter of Mahesh Bhatt seem to date each other but haven’t confessed it on air. The duo has been spotted partying and dining together. To add fuel to the speculations were Alia’s comments on Koffee With Karan. Alia said that Sid would make a good husband. But sadly for us and Alia, Siddharth has denied any link ups with his former actress.
Girlfriends, Relationships and More
The actor is reputed to be famous amongst girls and is an instant turn on. No wonder, he has found himself amidst several link ups with his co-stars. But apart from his co-stars, this talented actor also dated a foreigner woman on the sets of Student of the year.
He has confessed of dating a South African model while shooting for Student of the year. He also said it in an interview that he was very loyal to her, but the long distance relationship couldn’t work out. Unfortunately, the duo separated with ongoing differences.
Siddharth has been heavily linked with Alia. But to our demise, he has reluctantly ignored all the rumors and says he doesn’t know about Alia. Also, rumors found little air when Siddharth was seen maintaining proximity with Jacqueline and Katrina.
