Bollywood is not just about films, glamour and glitz. No actor or actress has escpaed the conjectures of being involved with someone. And the one place where we become privy to the inside scoops of the industry is Karan Johar's show, Koffee with Karan. In its latest episode, Sidharth Malhotra and Aditya Roy Kapur were the guests and of course a lot was talked about their personal relationships.

Sidharth Malhotra, at one point, was dating his debut co-star, Alia Bhatt. But all didn't go well between the two, and eventually they split up. When Karan Johar asked Sidharth Malhotra if he has met Alia Bhatt post their breakup, the Gentleman actor replied, "We haven’t met after it. Our relationship is civil... I don’t think it’s bitter. It’s been a while. I have known her for much longer even before we dated. I gave my first ever shot with her in SOTY so there is so much history."
Sidharth further added, "There is a reason why two people decide not to be together. There were lots of ups and downs. When you take yourself from a situation, you look at all the happy and good memories." Wow! That's quite mature and millenials should learn from him on how to only take positivity out of negative things.
Alia and Sidharth were once quite serious about each other. The rumours of the two dating each other started immediately after the release of their debut film, Student of the Year. Sidharth once revealed in an interview about their bond and shared, “Of course. We started our journey together, we have done two films. Varun, Alia and I have a deep connect. We've shared many emotions and experiences together. So the bond will always remain.”
On being asked if he would work with Alia again in a film, the Kapoor and Sons actor replied, “People keep telling us that we should do a film together. But let's see. It's a matter of us getting the right script and a director like Karan Johar. Because only he can manage that. But now he's doing Takht. Everyone is busy with their own journeys."
In an earlier interview, commenting on his love life, Sidharth had said, “I am very protective about my relationships. I think it’s a personal decision if you want to talk about who’s visiting you, who you are going out with at night or who you are hanging out with. I don’t know how it’s news even or how interesting it is to people. I can’t connect to it, so it’s very odd for me to talk about my personal life. I also feel there should be a space people don’t ask about my personal life." (Must Read: Sania Mirza's 3-Month-Old Son Izhaan Is Lost In Deep Thoughts In The New Picture, Check Inside)
He had also shared in the interview that he wouldn't plan a date with a girl if he finds her interesting, rather he would also ask her out on dinner. He had said “I trust my instincts. If I bump into an interesting woman, I don’t wait to plan a date. I’d rather ask her out for dinner right then. It has happened often enough, and I have had some great conversations.” He further remarked, “More than physical attributes, I look for an interesting personality, though I won’t deny I find long and loose hair very sexy."
Sidharth Malhotra is now reportedly dating Lust Stories actress, Kiara Advani, though he denied about the same in Koffee with Karan. Ealier as well, when a media person had asked him about his relationship with Kiara, he was quoted as saying, "Nahi yaar. I met her only once at Karan Johar’s party. After that I have not met her at all."
Alia Bhatt, on the other hand, is dating her Brahamstra co-star, Ranbir Kapoor. A recent media report had suggested that Alia and Ranbir will tie the nuptial knot soon. It was reported, "She has been welcomed into the family by everyone. So it’s not just Ranbir who loves Alia. His parents, sister and the rest of the sprawling Kapoor family adore her too. Marriage is on Ranbir’s mind for sure and he will get into it happily this time. The couple will wait until Rishi Kapoor’s recovery before discussing a date for marriage."

Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt have both positively moved on in their lives, and are comfortable in their own spaces. We hope Alia marries Ranbir soon, and Sidharth confesses about his love-life.
