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.
