Handsome young star Siddharth Malhotra celebrates his 32nd birthday as he completes nearly 6 years in the film industry. Siddharth has worked as an assistant director under Karan Johar in Shahrukh Khan starrer epic My Name is Khan. Siddharth and Varun both did this project together and they starred in their first film called Student Of The Year in 2012 which was also a launch vehicle for Alia bhatt and film became a big hit. Alia and Varun are doing phenomenally well today though Siddharth is still searching for a film for which he can be remembered.
Siddharth is always criticized for his plastic acting skills and lack of range in performance but he has grown exponentially judging by the trailer of Aiyaary where he could stand toe to toe with legendary Manoj Bajpayee. Siddharth has just given a flop by the name of A Gentleman, which is a film rising completely on his shoulders but his mediocrity as an actor can not compensate for little stardom he has. Unlike Salman Khan, stars of this day and age really need to act otherwise they won’t have a long career and Siddharth is not going to pack any soon.
His last film Ittefaq was successful on the box office and Akshay Khanna got good reviews for his brilliant performance but Siddharth could only afford a consolation prize which said well tried. His upcoming film Aiyaary with celebrated director Neeraj Pandey could be the cult he is looking for though the release date of this film has been pushed to 9 February instead of 26 January to avoid the clash with Padmaavat and Padman. In his short career he has not exactly given a hit film which was riding totally on his shoulder except his 2014 release Ek Villain where he played the character of Guru. He has not announced a film post Aiyaary though Dharma will give him something to work on.
