Sidharth Malhotra On Facing Failure In Bollywood: I Don’t Think I Have Arrived, The Best Is Yet To Come
Sidharth Malhotra On Facing Failure In Bollywood
Sidharth Malhotra has had his own journey full of ups and downs and life lessons when it comes to making it as an actor in Bollywood. The Student Of The Year star who turned 36 today believes ‘it’s just the beginning’ for him and his best yet to come.
Talking to Bombay Times the actor looked back at his uphill journey in Bollywood and said, “I had zero experience on camera and no uncle or aunty recommended me, so I could only learn from my mistakes.”
The actor recalled how he modeled for pocket money and didn’t mind doing ‘the dirty jobs’ as an assistant director on the sets of films like Dostana and My Name Is Khan. He added the move to ‘Bandra from Malad East’ has taken him several years and a lot of hard work.

Talking about the criticism one has to face as an outsider when a few films failed to take off, Sidharth optimistically shared, “You have to keep going. I don’t think I have arrived, the best is yet to come. Also, I am not obsessed with what’s written about me. I’d rather do activities that are more fulfilling like travelling, sports, workout, horse-riding, hanging out with my non-industry friends as that gives you a sense of normalcy. If someone’s engaging I can have a conversation with them for hours.”
The actor will this year be seen in the Captain Vikram Batra biopic titled Shershaah and for the future has three more exciting films lined up including Mission Majnu, Thank God with Indra Kumar, and the Hindi remake of the South hit Thadam.
