Sidharth Malhotra started his career as a model at the age of 18 and went on to work as an assistant director with Karan Johar in ‘My Name is Khan’ (2010). He made his acting debut in the teen drama film ‘Student of the Year’ (2012). Malhotra was nominated for the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut for his performance. His early films ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ and ‘The Villain’ proved moderately successful, which established him as one of the most successful new generation actors. His family drama ‘Kapoor & Sons’ (2016) proved a commercial success at the box office. His next two releases, ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ (2016) and ‘A Gentleman’ (2017) received mixed reviews but failed at the box office. These films were followed by ‘Ittefaq’ (2017), which performed a little better, but his ‘Aiyaary’ (2018) and ‘Jabariya Jodi’ (2019) proved unsuccessful.
