Siddharth Malhotra says he still feels like a Delhi boy at heart even after shifting his base from the Capital to Mumbai.
"I was lucky to come in (to Mumbai) at a time when they (people) were looking for new talent. I have done my share of auditions. I have evolved and changed over the period and Mumbai has a lot to do with that," the 29-year-old said here at the unveiling of the cover of Men's Health magazine featuring him.
"Mumbai has added so much to my personality, the exposure that you get and people you meet, the professionalism here, which we should have in Delhi. But I am still a Delhi boy at heart and Delhi is my home but Mumbai is great too," he added.
Siddharth says only his hard work and focus helped him more when being an outsider made things tough for him when he first came to Mumbai to become an actor.
"It's always tough when you come from a different town, you don't know anybody and don't have any family...no support system, professionally or personally. Mumbai is a tough city but it has given me everything today. It requires you to be a little patient, to be focussed and to work hard," Sidharth said.
Siddharth made his debut with 'Student of The Year' in 2012 and was last seen in 'Hasee Toh Phasee.'
Mohit Suri's Ek Villain where he will be seen in a grey character alongside Shraddha Kapoor is his next venture.
