Happy Birthday Sidharth Malhotra: take a look at his rollercoaster journey in Bollywood

Once viewed as a chocolate boy, Sidharth has fought tooth and nail to make a name for himself. 

On the star's 37th birthday, take a look at his rollercoaster journey in Bollywood.

From a local Delhi boy to becoming a lead actor and living the life of a star now, Sidharth Malhotra hasn’t had it easy. His career graph has seen quite a few ups and downs. He started out being a model and served as an Assistant Director in Dostana and My Name Is Khan before he finally could make a mark.

Once viewed as a chocolate boy, Sidharth has fought tooth and nail to be more than just a pretty face. On the star's 37th birthday, take a look at his rollercoaster journey in Bollywood.

Debut movie

Sidharth made his Bollywood debut with Karan Johar’s “Student Of The Year” in 2012. The film also marked the debut of actors Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan.

The turning point

The movie Ek Villain was a turning point in Sidharth Malhotra’s Bollywood career. The film was commercially successful at the box-office with earnings of about ₹ 131 crores and was also critically acclaimed. He was then seen in the movie Hasse Toh Phasse opposite Parineeti Chopra in 2014. The movie did fairly well at the box-office.

Sidharth Malhotra also appeared in the comedy-drama film Kapoor & Sons opposite Alia Bhatt, which was appreciated by the critics. Along with it, he shared screen space in the sports-drama movie 'Brothers' with Akshay Kumar, which also did well at the silver screen.

Choices that didn't work

Sidharth Malhotra was a part of a few films which didn’t meet the expectation of his fans. Baar Baar Dekho which released in the year 2016 did not perform well at the box-office and was declared a flop. Jabariya Jodi opposite Parineeti Chopra was also unable to meet crtitics' expectations either.

The film that changed it all

Sidharth Malhotra ‘Shershaah’ success is the biggest game changer of all. Malhotra, who was tasked with playing the war hero, is touched by the unprecedented love of the audience coming his way for ‘Shershaah’.
Hailed by many as the actor's career-best, the film's success tastes sweeter as Malhotra was deeply invested in bringing the story to life for the last five years.

As for 2022, it’s already looking to be a hectic one for the actor, with three releases lined up — Mission Majnu, Thank God and Yoddha. After giving the biggest hit of his career-Shershaah, is going to be Bollywood's go to action hero?
