Sidharth Malhotra today is one of the biggest stars in Bollywood. The actor, who made his debut in acting with Student Of The Year, has come a long way in his career.

Talking to Pinkvilla he opened up on his struggling days.

Sidharth Malhotra’s Delhi days:

The Thank God actor said, “Oh no not at all I think for me it was very daunting to be on such a massive set in the first place. It's like a very far-fetched dream to stay in New Delhi and believe in a service background household middle-class household to believe that you become an actor and be on the big screen. They used to make on me. My family never used to take me seriously. Because it was not something I was open about it as I was a kid. I wasn’t like there. It was only in my late teens I started facing still cameras and all and then that whole thing. People started seeing different aspects.”

He further said, “For me being on that first film, you know getting such massive launch is a big milestone in my life. Now when I look back at 10 years okay great I thought that was the difficult part to get in there. But then I realise the struggles one has to be or go through to sustain themselves. It’s a big task to entertain this country and be in this business.”

His first pay:

Sidharth also revealed that he received his first amount of Rs 7000 which he gave to his mother. He said that he did not have an account.

Thank God:
