After making his fans woo with his intense role and acting expertise in Mohit Suri’s action-thriller Ek Villian in 2014, Sidharth Malhotra is all set to reunite with Ekta Kapoor after more than three years for a love story which is yet to decide on its title. The film is expected to go on floor this year.

Confirming the new project, a source close to the development said, “It’s a small town love story with edgy characters. As soon as Ekta heard it, she immediately reached out to Sidharth. She believes it’s a great role and a perfect film for them to come together. The film is expected to roll in a couple of months. The makers will begin the reccee soon and zero in on a leading lady”.

Talking about the film Ek Villian, which was both critically acclaimed and a commercial success, the source added “The duo hopes to recreate the magic with their reunion”. We hope to see Sidharth Malhotra recreating his on-screen charm yet again with this upcoming romantic saga.

akshay-sidNeeraj Pandey’s directorial that was first scheduled for release of January 25, 2018, shifted it’s release date to February 9, 2018 to avoid clash and give Akshay Kumar starrer “Pad Man” a solo release.

But, then, Akshay shifted his release date from January 25, 2018 to February 9, 2018 to give SLB’s “Padmaavat” a solo release. This means Akshay again initiated a box office battle with “Aiyaary” team who averted the clash in the first place.

Now, during an interaction with IANS, Sidharth Malhotra, who plays a pivotal role in “Aiyaary”, was asked about the clash.

To this, he revealed that the clash between his film and Akki’s “Pad Man” could have been avoided. But he says he can only hope for the best now.

“Aiyaary”, which has a patriotic vibe, was originally slated for release on January 25 to make the most of the long Republic Day weekend.

However, Akshay Kumar, as a move in support of Sanjay Leela Bhansali and to let “Padmaavat” get a solo release, shifted “Pad Man” to February 9, bringing the situation back to square one — clashing with “Aiyaary”.

Sidharth says: “Yes, it irritates, but now it’s too late. What can we do now? Look, we announced the date first. When ‘Pad Man’ makers unveiled their release date, we were gracious enough to shift our release date to avoid the clash.

“This situation could have resolved earlier, people could have stuck to their dates, respecting others’ space. I was not expecting the makers of ‘Pad Man’ to release their film with us, especially the second time. We thought we will get a solo release.

“See, eventually the fate of the film will speak for itself. We are confident about our film, it has its audience. Now that we cannot change anything, we can hope for the best.”

In “Aiyaary”, Sidharth plays an Army officer who has an ideological difference with another senior officer, played by Manoj Bajpayee. The movie also features Rakul Preet Singh, Anupam Kher and Naseeruddin Shah.

Alia Bhatt was recently in Jodhpur to celebrate her friend Kripa Mehta’s grand wedding. The actress was accompanied by her bestie, Anushka Ranjan. Alia and Anushka played the perfect bridesmaid to the bride and were the life of the event. For the sangeet ceremony, Bhatt dolled up in a peach lehenga and danced on Arjun Kapoor’s ‘Hawa Hawa’ from ‘Mubarakan’ and kept everyone entertained.

However according to a Mumbai Mirror report, what kept tongues wagging was Alia’s performance on alleged ex- Sidharth Malhotra’s song ‘Nachde Ne Saare’ from ‘Baar Baar Dekho’. Later, she got emotional as the bride swayed on the song ‘Moh Moh Ke Dhaage’. Next morning, they also watched polo match together before the grand marriage commenced in the evening.

Later, the report also stated that Alia and her girl gang welcomed the ‘baarat’ with the traditional aarti, and burst into tears as her friend readied to take the wedding vows.

Here are a few pictures from the wedding:

The 24-year-old actress had taken a break from Zoya Akhtar’s film ‘Gully Boy’ to be beside her friend on her D-Day. Alia, along with Anushka, landed in Mumbai on Tuesday. On the other hand, rumours about Alia and Ranbir’s proximity towards each other are making headlines. They both will be seen in Ayan Mukerji’s next ‘Brahmastra’.

Sidharth Malhotra on how playing different roles is necessary to stay relevant in Bollywood

Sidharth Malhotra loves the place he finds himself in when he’s shuttling questions on relationships. Of course, when you feel like you’ve structured your question aptly to arrive at an objective answer, he cuts off conversation with a sheepish, “Why is it [actors’ relationships] anyone’s business?” Until then, rumoured lover Alia Bhatt peppers his conversation all along.

“Alia has nabbed a variety of roles,” he says during this interview, a trait, he insists, is evident in his career’s trajectory as well. “If the fact that I’ve tried out different roles is not true, then I don’t know what is,” says the actor, pointing out that his upcoming stint as an Indian Army man in Aiyaary is distanced from his antagonist act in Ittefaq (2017). “Each of my roles has been unique. I have [revamped myself] with every film.”

Variety, he insists, will be the demand of new-age cinema. “I’ve attempted different scripts because it’s important to do so. In the future, people will remember us [actors] by our characters, not the genre we’ve been associated with,” he added.

Bollywood actor Sidharth Malhotra, who forayed into this world with Karan Johar’s ‘Student of The Year’, has posted a deceptive tweet. He has also deleted his profile and cover picture and changed into the colour black, which is usually done in the form of protest against something. His Instagram profile picture has also turned black. The tweet says that he is done. The ‘Gentleman’ actor wrote, “sorry iam done ! (sic)”

His Instagram status reads, “Off”

Sidharth Malhotra

Well, the actor has had decent releases in the past with ‘Baar Baar Dekho’, ‘A Gentleman’, ‘Ittefaq’ and the latest one geared up for release is ‘Aiyaary’ with Manoj Bajpayee. Post his film, ‘Ek Villain’ with Shraddha Kapoor, the actor has been struggling to deliver a super-hit film.  The actor is apparently dating actress Alia Bhatt. News of their break-up keeps popping in between but the alleged couple manages to shut their detractors with a joint appearance at a party.

We wonder what triggered this action by Sidharth?

Apart from films, the actor has also plans of joining the steadily growing league of actors wishing to drape the masses in their designs. The actor, we hear, is set to join Shahid Kapoor and Salman Khan in an attempt to revolutionise men’s fashion wear with his line of clothing and accessories. Sources close to Malhotra say that a last round of discussions with the actor are underway. “He will be collaborating with a noted e-commerce site to sell his pieces. Most of them are colourful attires and will be available in a variety of materials. He is sticking to creating casual and party wear as of now,” says the source, adding that the range will also include accessories like belts, sunglasses and cufflinks.

While the source says that an announcement on the line can be expected soon, Malhotra says the developments are in a nascent stage. He is eyeing a date in 2018 to confirm the plan. “It is in progress. I want to give people something stylish and reliable. I haven’t demarcated [the collection] yet,” he says. A pair of red-rimmed sunglasses that attracted attention when he made his debut in Student Of The Year (2012), is also piquing his interest. “I am planning to launch a brand of red sunglasses, inspired by my first look. Maybe within a year, you will see something coming in fashion or tech.”
