School days- the time when our mommies jerk-woke us shouting “Arre, aaj fir se school bus miss ho jaega!” How badly we used to envy our parents who went to the office and thought to ourselves, “Why are they so lucky that they don’t have to study?” Admit it or not, as much as some of us hated going to school, we now realise that those were the best days of our lives. What we become in the future depends on the learning that we’ve had in our school and till date, ‘nostalgia trips’ means going back to school life and remembering all the fun that we used to do. Recently, Jabariya Jodi actor, Sidharth Malhotra went on a candid school life revelation mode.

It was in 2012 when three newcomers entered Karan Johar’s St. Teresa College as his students. One of them was a boy with a tall-built frame, chiselled face and blessed with super-good looks. His name, as it later came about, was Sidharth Malhotra. Soon after we watched Sidharth on the big screen, we were sure that he is going to create his own pathway in this industry of stars. And so he did! In the next 7 years, Sidharth Malhotra came to be known as one of the top-notch superstars in the Tinseltown with his talent and choice of films. While his penchant towards acting surely carves a niche in the hearts of his audience, it was Sidharth’s linkup rumours with many of his female co-stars that had also made headlines.
Sidharth Malhotra is all set to hit another milestone in his filmy career with his soon-to-release film, Jabariya Jodi, opposite Parineeti Chopra. His UP accent, ‘bhaiyya ji’ attitude and his fight for the good cause is already grabbing eyeballs. Sidharth, as a part of the film’s promotions, went on a trip to the memory lane and revealed that he had failed his standard 9 examinations as he was distracted by girls because he has always been to an all-boys school and probably had been tempted to be surrounded by them. He shared, “Yes, my attention was diverted by girls. But this (the failure) turned out to be a positive thing in my life as I was eventually moved to a co-ed school where I learned better. And I passed my 10th and 11th grade with good grades.”
On the same show, both Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra shared something even more exciting. Their film, Jabariya Jodi’s plot is based on kidnapping grooms who demands a dowry. When Parineeti was asked about who she would kidnap in real life, pat came her reply, “Saif Ali Khan I have even told Kareena Kapoor how much I admire Saif.” When asked whom Sidharth would like to kidnap in real life, he shared it would be Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan’s little sunshine, Taimur Ali Khan!
Coming back to Sidharth Malhotra and his linkup rumours, very recently, we had heard how the actor feels about his once muse, Alia Bhatt at Karan Johar’s chat show, Koffee With Karan season 6. Speaking about what is in his mind for his ex-girlfriend, Alia, Sidharth was quoted as saying, “I don’t think it’s bitter. We haven’t really met after that, to be honest. And it’s civil. It’s been a while and it happens... just like any other relationship." He had further added, “I have known her for much longer. I did know her much before, even before we were dating. So, it’s not like we met as a particular boyfriend-girlfriend thing. I think it’ll remain. It’s just a matter of us coming back.” (Must Read: Sourabh Jain Of 'Radha Krishna' Shares Unseen Wedding Pics, Gets Emotional Ahead Of 'Nach Baliye')
Sidharth Malhotra was also linked up with Student Of The Year 2 actress, Tara Sutaria. During one of the promotional event, on being asked about her relationship status with Sidharth Malhotra, she had insisted that she is not dating him. In fact, on being probed further she had said that 'their chemistry is fireworks'. Tara had stated, "No, we are not dating each other. He’s my padosi and love thy neighbour for sure I mean why not? But well, we are just great friends." She had also added, “We talk often... we talk about our film. I also got my second film with him. Of course, we also talk about other things too (Here, Ananya and Tiger laugh). It’s the whole padosi pyaar kind of a lovely chat."
An August 2018 Filmfare report had it that there’s a high probability of Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani dating each other. The alleged ‘couple’ had first met at one of Karan Johar’s parties and their camaraderie was rumoured to be going strong since then. Siddharth was also one of the stars who was spotted at Kiara’s birthday bash last year, on July 31, 2018. It was also reported that since their meeting, Sidharth and Kiara had been constantly on the phone and love spending time with each other. Although many linkup rumours of Sidharth Malhotra has come in ever since, the one with Kiara Advani has lingered longer than expected. With his recent film, Jabariya Jodi all set to hit the screens soon, Sidharth at an event, was once again asked to comment on his relationship with the Kabir Singh star, Kiara Advani. Talking about her, the Ek Villain actor had shared, “She is my lovely friend. Humne abhi Shershaah ki shooting khatam ki hai. She is my co-star and currently, I’m happy with this jodi."

With whom and whether Sidharth Malhotra is still distracted by girls is hard to decipher. But that his professional life is totally heading towards the ‘win’, that is for sure! Isn’t it, dear readers? (*wink wink*)
