Sidharth Malhotra Early Life and Education:

Sidharth Malhotra was born in Delhi, India into a Punjabi Hindu family, to Sunil Malhotra, a former captain in the Merchant Navy, and Rimma Malhotra, a homemaker.

Malhotra was educated at Don Bosco School (Alaknanda, New Delhi), and at Naval Public School, Delhi. He then graduated from Shaheed Bhagat Singh College, Delhi. At the age of 18, he began modeling. Although he was successful, he decided to quit after four years because he was dissatisfied with the profession.

Sidharth Malhotra Career:

Sidharth Malhotra began his acting journey in 2006 with the TV serial Dharti Ka Veer Yodha Prithviraj Chauhan, portraying the role of Jaichand. Despite his television debut, Malhotra aimed for a film career, initially working as an assistant director on Karan Johar’s My Name Is Khan in 2010.

In 2012, Malhotra made his film debut with Johar’s Student of the Year, earning praise for his earnest performance as Abhimanyu Singh. The film was a commercial success, marking a promising start to his acting career.

He followed up with the romantic comedy Hasee Toh Phasee in 2014 opposite Parineeti Chopra, receiving acclaim for his screen presence. The same year, he showcased his versatility in the romantic thriller Ek Villain, which further established him as a promising talent in Bollywood.

Malhotra continued to impress with films like Brothers in 2015, despite its mixed reception, and Kapoor & Sons in 2016, where he held his own among an ensemble cast. Despite occasional criticisms, his solid performances and charismatic presence have solidified his position as one of Hindi cinema’s rising stars.

Following the success of Kapoor & Sons, Sidharth Malhotra’s career hit a rough patch with several box office disappointments. In the romantic comedy Baar Baar Dekho (2016), opposite Katrina Kaif, he played a time-traveling mathematician, but the film was poorly received by critics and audiences alike. The action comedy A Gentleman (2017), where Malhotra starred in dual roles alongside Jacqueline Fernandez, also failed to make an impact despite high anticipation.

In 2017, Malhotra appeared in the remake of the mystery film Ittefaq opposite Sonakshi Sinha, which garnered positive reviews but failed to perform well at the box office. Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary (2018) featured Malhotra in a significant role, but it too struggled at the box office due to its flawed script and lengthy runtime.

His two releases in 2019, the romantic comedy Jabariya Jodi and the action film Marjaavaan, both received negative reviews and were commercial failures. Despite these setbacks, Malhotra continues to explore diverse roles in the industry, aiming for a career resurgence in the future.

In 2021, Sidharth Malhotra took on a significant role in the biographical war film Shershaah, portraying Indian army officer Vikram Batra. Despite mixed reviews, Malhotra’s performance garnered praise for his portrayal of the real-life martyr. The film became the most-watched on Amazon Prime Video in India upon its release and earned him his first nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Actor.

His only film release in 2022 was the fantasy comedy Thank God, alongside Ajay Devgn, which failed to make an impact commercially. The following year, Malhotra starred as an Indian spy in Pakistan before the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971 in the thriller Mission Majnu. Despite his commendable performance, the film received mixed reviews, with criticism aimed at the script.

In 2024, Malhotra headlined the police procedural series Indian Police Force on Amazon Prime Video. While his portrayal received praise for its decency, some critics felt he struggled with the broad nature of the role. Continuing his focus on heroic roles, he played an army officer once again in the action film Yodha. While opinions on the film were mixed, Malhotra was deemed one of the most dependable action heroes among his contemporaries.

Sidharth Malhotra Personal Life (Wife / Children):

In the late 2010s, Malhotra was rumoured to be dating actress Alia Bhatt. He confirmed the relationship in 2019 after they had broken up.

Rumours of him dating actress Kiara Advani began in 2020, but he did not publicly speak about the relationship. On 7 February 2023, they married in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan in a traditional Hindu wedding ceremony. Their wedding received widespread media attention, resulting in their official wedding pictures being the most-liked Instagram post in India till date.
