Bollywood’s assumed couple Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt is undoubtedly one of the cutest couples in B-town. Alia Bhatt had admitted in the past that Sidharth Malhotra was a very special person in her life but had never accepted that she was dating him.

According to Indian media reports, Malhotra has said: “Alia and I have a terrific bond because of the number of films we have done together. We have been friends for a long time. Over the years, we have gone beyond being just colleagues and friends. Since I didn’t grow up in and around the film industry, the rumours and the attention towards my personal life is something I am still struggling to come to terms with. I take it with a pinch of salt because it is part and parcel of being a Bollywood actor.”

The handsome actor further added, “You are bound to have an emotional connect when you spend so much time with someone. But, at its core, Alia and I share a deep friendship that remains unaffected by what’s written about us and what people say. Alia and I never had a sense of competition even when we started off. We began from ground zero. Yes, competition is an integral part of any industry.

“But, I was the chosen one who made it big from among lakhs of common people, who lust to be a part of the glam world. I am never intimidated by colleagues or friends, be it Alia or Varun Dhawan. I don’t envy their choices or their success. I am selfish like that. I care only about my work and whether I am better than my last film. As actors, our only focus should be on improving our craft,” Sidharth Malhotra revealed.

The upcoming movie ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ starring Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles is about a couple’s journey that belongs to different age groups. This film also has a time travel angle, which is making it more interesting to watch. The trailer of their upcoming movie has just got released and both the actors can be seen at their romantic best in the movie. It will hit theatres on September 9.
