Sidharth Malhotra made his acting debut with Karan Johar’s Student of the year co-starring Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan and post that, Sid, as he is fondly called, went on to do ​​a couple of films such as Aiyaari, Brothers, and others. Although, looking at Sid’s career graph, he has had a couple of flop films but his loyal fan following has immense trust in the actor and love him unconditionally. Sidharth’s last film, Jabariya Jodi, too failed to weave its magic at the box office and during an interview, Sidharth Malhotra said that acting was alien to him. 

In an interview, Sidharth Malhotra said that there was never a Plan A for him and acting was his Plan B and he is quite alien to acting since he doesn’t come from a filmy background. “I really don’t know, I never thought there was a Plan A, and I think this is Plan B for me. The way my career has shaped up; I came into the industry when I was 22 years old. I think even though I have been on this plan for a while now, I don’t think I ever had Plan A in place,” said Sidharth. Moreover, Sid said that he doesn’t believe in making plans. “I was quite far from acting, it was such an alien unattainable thing for me at that time. So I don’t believe in making plans,” he adds.

But besides acting, this Hasee Toh Phasee actor is keen on getting into production as he can give suggestions to the director and one has more control over filmmaking. “In production, you have more control and you can enjoy every aspect of filmmaking. You can give suggestions to a director, and I enjoy that process behind the camera, be it writing or editing. So that is the plan. So far, I am happy being an actor, but it has to be close to me, or a story that touched me in some way. It is the matter of picking the script. I would not want to do it just for the business aspect of it,” said Sid. Currently, Sidharth Malhotra is shooting in Kargil for Shershaah opposite Kiara Advani and due to the revocation of Article 370, the shooting of the film was stalled but finally, it has started.
