Bollywood hunk Sidharth Malhotra is ready to drop his underwear onscreen, but he has his own terms and conditions before going ‘full monty’

Sidharth Malhotra has had a decent run at the box-office this year with his film ‘A Gentleman’ performing moderately well and ‘Ittefaq’ getting critical acclaim and also raking in the moolah. Sidharth, has also signed ‘Aiyaary’ a war-drama to be directed by Neeraj Pandey. Spanning out his career from the time of his debut in ‘Student Of The Year’ in 2012, Sidharth has covered most of the genres in Bollywood. Talking about his film choices in an interview to DNA , he says he is not swayed by box-office numbers. ” I am looking at the bigger picture as opposed to the smaller things. I can’t keep thinking about the box-office business. You can’t live off a big hit for a long time, but if you get appreciation, you get a bigger equity and a better legacy. Yes, of course, there are films that have not done well, but there have been movies that have been appreciated as well. I’m not insecure in that zone because I still have the same confidence with which I came into this industry. I know that I will make it, but there’s time to do that. It will happen over some time. It’s a matter of getting the correct combination. These are times to learn from because an actor learns the most when things don’t go his way. There’s a sense of maturity that comes in and fear goes away. And that will only help me better myself as a performer.”

A few of his films have failed but that doesn’t unnerve him either. “Never! I have made all the choices consciously, and I stand by them. Yes, I learn from them. On the sets, when I see directors change something because of the location or technical matters, then it’s just an experience ki aisa bhi ho sakta hai. That’s the learning, but not a regret ki yaar kyun kiya.I think my choices are inclined more towards content-driven films. I haven’t really done the typical, mainstream films. I have always looked for that one peg in all my films. More than it changing my choices, it changes my performance. What I do with those films and characters is what’s important. Aiyaary is next and it has a talented director like Neeraj Pandey and he likes things very subtle. So, the film is more about the story than just the performances. I have not seen the film yet so I can’t speak for it. Henceforth, like in the Vikram Batra biopic, whatever I do, there will be far more shades to it than what you saw in Ittefaq. Probably, now, I get the push to try things like that better.I have not differentiated between commercial and niche films. Some of my most commercial choices have not worked. Right now, nobody knows what will work. The smaller films are doing well mainly because they are made on tight budgets. They usually turn out to be sleeper hits. That’s far more satisfying than falling into the trap of having a big film, releasing at a period and following a certain graph.

 And finally, will he ever be ready to drop his pants for a role? “Of course, I would do it. But only if there’s a reason or logic behind it. I will not drop my underwear unless it’s aesthetic and it’s great to do a character like that (laughs). I won’t go nude just for the heck of it. It’s pointless.”

Soha Ali Khan had been advocating yoga during her pregnancy. She shared photos on her Instagram and showed how to stay fit during the nine months of pregnancy. Like her sister-in-law Kareena Kapoor Khan, Soha Ali Khan was up and about during her pregnancy. She endorsed stuff related to pregnant women like oils to keep stretch marks away and mineral water which is beneficial during the nine months. Unlike several Bollywood women who go missing as soon as they realise they are in the family way, Soha, like Bebo, did not shy away from shutterbugs.

In an interview earlier, Soha Ali Khan told Kareena Kapoor Khan had been giving her diet tips and more for expecting mothers. “Kareena has been very helpful. She recently went through this. So, I keep asking her a lot of questions on a daily basis. What should I eat, what is allowed, what isn’t,” Soha had said. “I really don’t know what to expect or how the journey ahead is going to be like,” she added.

“Production has been on my mind for a while,” says Tusshar Kapoor, as he shares with mid-day his love for stories. While the prospect had lingered in his mind in the past, he is now considering it earnestly.

“The idea is a concrete one. There are a few stories on my mind that I wish to produce, but production is a full-time job. It can be exhausting. I am committed as an actor, and do not wish to leave acting to pursue production. So, striking a balance will be necessary,” says Kapoor. He adds that while he isn’t certain of when he will make his debut, the idea of venturing into production is playing on his mind “all the time.”

Given that sister Ekta has made a mark as producer, both in films and television, one might assume that Kapoor could benefit from collaborating with her. However, the actor talks about starting out alone. “I want an entity that’s entirely mine. Ekta and I have distinct tastes, and equally strong opinions. We live under the same roof, so, I think it’s okay to have separate work identities. Of course, we always have each other’s back.”

Kapoor returned to acting after a paternity break following the birth of his son, Laksshya, in June 2016. He was certain to take his tiny tot on the sets of Golmaal Again, as soon as he was old enough to accompany him. “He was excited to see the colours and hear the music,” Kapoor says.
