“Killer looks, washboard abs, stunning personality and that smile….” A few things that cross your mind when you think of Siddharth Malhotra. He’s been in the industry for 5 years and has given us some great movies to keep us entertained from his debut Student Of The Year to Hasee Toh Phasee.

Unfortunately, his previous movie Baar Baar Dekho failed to attract the audiences to rake in the moolah at the box office, and that changed his perception of failures and setbacks.

He spoke in an interview about dealing with the aftermath of a failed film.

“Flops are like falling off a bicycle. After Baar Baar Dekho, I don’t fear failing. At this point in my career, I am in such a space where I don’t look at the work of any co-star with a competitive spirit. I have my career to build and I look forward to investing my energy into that.”


He’s often compared to the other two students – Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan – but he understands that you can’t spend time worrying about other’s careers.

He says, “Competition, in this industry, has a different connotation. Here, there will always be people who have worked before you. You have to make peace with the fact that there will even be better performers coming in after you. In order to maintain your sanity, you can only compete with your last performance. That’s all that matters. Why would I care about Varun and Alia’s careers? I have too much on my plate to worry about anyway.”
Way to go Sid. You do you and rest will take care of itself.  We’re looking forward to watching you in A Gentleman while still gushing over Chandrelekha.
