Actor Sidharth Malhotra is often in limelight owing to his alleged affair with Alia Bhatt but the actor has always chosen to keep mum. Asked why he is so guarded about his personal life, here's what Sidharth told IANS in an email interview:
"I am here for my work and my work speaks to my audience. At home, I am a private person and I like keeping it that way, may be that is why I come out as being guarded about my personal life."
The Ek Villain star, who has no Bollywood connection, started his career as an assistant director in Karan Johar's 2010 film My Name Is Khan. As an actor, the former model made his debut with the 2012 film Student Of The Year, which also starred Alia.
Coming from a non-Bollywood background, how difficult is it for an actor to survive in showbiz, where there is cut-throat competition everyday?
"Since I started my career in Bollywood as an assistant director, I had the knowledge about how films are made and the kind of efforts that go into making one. The past four years in the industry have been spectacular," Sidharth said.
Sidharth is now gearing up for his upcoming film Baar Baar Dekho directed by Nitya Mehra, which also stars actress Katrina Kaif.
