Actor Sidharth Malhotra, who made his acting debut in 2012 with Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan in Student of the Year, doesn't see them as competitors and wishes them luck for their forthcoming film Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania.
The 29-year-old along with Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan was mentored by filmmaker Karan Johar and all three have tasted success since their debut film. When asked about competing with each other, the Ek Villain hero told IANS in a telephonic interview from Mumbai: "Me, Alia and Varun feel like we've gone to school together. Why would we compete among ourselves when there's so much...."
"We have different and unique styles and films. It's tough to make friends in the industry. We all have... I want to see Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. I've heard Alia Bhatt's song recently and she has sung really well. She has a great voice. I hope it's a big success," he added.
Produced by Karan and directed by Shashank Khaitan, Humpty Sharma will release July 11. The film features Varun Dhawan as Rakesh Sharma (Humpty) and Alia Bhatt as Kavya Pratap Singh in lead roles. The film is produced by Karan Johar and directed by debutant Shashank Khaitan. It showcases contemporary Indian family and is devoid of melodrama that used to dominate the screen earlier.
Varun Dhawan even jokingly said, "In Student Of The Year our love story was incomplete as we didn't walk into the sunset eventually. Woh Sidharth beech mein aa gaya. Now in Humpty Sharma... though, it should be fun for audience to see me and my 'dulhania'."Speaking about Alia, Varun added, "She has clearly grown a lot as an actress; the kind of accolades she has been getting right through the year so far pretty much shows that. Now with her in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, it only helps the film since family audience really like her."
Meanwhile this is his second film in the title role, one waits to see how audience give him thumbs up again after Main Tera Hero.
