Bollywood’s newest hunk, Siddharth Malhotra, reported to be dating a Costa Rican model!
With his Bollywood debut just around the corner, model-turned-actor Siddharth Malhotra has been drawing a load of attention. Considered to be one of tinsel-town’s most promising actors, Siddharth Malhotra will star in Karan Johar’s upcoming film Student of the Year alongside Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt. For the newcomer, Student of the Year is a dream debut. Says Siddharth, “Sometimes, I’m a bit nervous. But at most times, I’m confident. I have landed a dream debut. Karan, according to me, has the safest pair of hands in the film business.”
The silver-screen’s hottest fresh-face Siddharth Malhotra started his career as a model, walking the runway for Manish Arora, Manish Malhotra, Rohit Bal and the international design house Roberto Cavalli. He has also been featured on the covers of magazines like RedBook, Men’s Health and Gladrags and has won several awards including the Gladrags Face of the Year 2009 award and the NDTV Model of the Year 2010. Siddharth Malhotra has worked with Karan Johar as an assistant director for the film My Name Is Khan. His exceptional performance for the film left Karan Johar impressed. Quoting Karan Johar, “He (Siddharth Malhotra) somehow met someone at Dharma Productions and got the job of a trainee assistant director (AD) on My Name is Khan. My Name Is Khan was an expansive shoot, but he lasted all through and was one of the finest ADs of the film.”
However, for the gorgeous and handsome Siddharth Malhotra, acting didn’t come easily. The actor had to work hard to fit into his character for the film. “It has not been an easy journey. I started my career with modeling and then worked with Karan as an assistant director. At that time I had never imagined that he will cast me as a lead actor in his movie,” says Siddharth.
That said, Siddharth Malhotra has managed to gather a huge fan-base, particularly made up of teenage girls who simply can’t get enough of the debutant. The actor has been reported to date a Costa Rican model named Natalie since quite a while now, leaving the better half of his fan-base disappointed! Siddharth and Natalie are rumored to have met when the former visited the United States for My Name Is Khan.
