About Me

Sidharth Malhotra (born 16 January 1985) is an Indian film actor and former model who appears in Hindi films of Bollywood. He began his acting career in Karan Johar's commercially successful dramedy Student of the Year, for which he received a Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut nomination.
 
Prior to his acting debut, Malhotra was an active model and also worked as an assistant director to Karan Johar on his 2010 film, My Name Is Khan. In 2012, Malhotra made his debut in Johar's Student of the Year alongside Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt. His performance was appreciated by film critics. Rajeev Masand from CNN-IBN wrote that Malhotra "is earnest and has a pleasing presence."Anupama Chopra from Hindustan Times commented, "Critically, the leading men, Varun and Sidharth, work. They don't instantly set the screen on fire like Hrithik Roshan or Ranbir Kapoor did in their first films. But they grow on you. Karan puts a heavy burden on them. They are the backbone of this film, but they pull it off. If you have patience and a taste for the overblown, check them out". The film performed very well at the box office, earning over INR70 crore (US$12 million) domestically. 
 
Malhotra was paired opposite Parineeti Chopra alongside Adah Sharma in the film Hasee Toh Phasee, co-produced by Dharma Productions and Phantom Films and directed by debutant Vinil Mathew. The film as well as his performance received positive reviews. Mohar Basu of Koimoi wrote, "In every bit Malhotra matches up to Parineeti’s terrific work with equal gusto. He is gregarious but restrained and there is a serene calmness in his performance which makes him a smashing hit. To compliment Parineeti’s boisterousness is quite a challenge and so far he is the co-star she is best suited with." and described his chemistry with Chopra a " lively, heartfelt chemistry with confidence." "The movie although had a mixed opening at the box-office, it showed a good growth due to word-of-mouth publicity and ultimately emerged a commercial success with global revenues of INR62 crore (US$10 million) .
 
Malhotra has signed on for a non-exclusive two film deal with Ekta Kapoor's production house, Balaji Motion Pictures as part of which he will star in Mohit Suri's Ek Villain opposite Shraddha Kapoor. He has also confirmed to be a part of Vikramaditya Motwane's social drama Bhavesh Joshi, Karan Malhotra's Hindi remake of Warrior, titled the same, alongside Akshay Kumar and Tarun Mansukhani's Hindi remake of the French film Priceless opposite Anushka Sharma.
