With 2016 being entirely his year with two hit movies like Kapoor & Sons and Baar Baar Dekho, Siddharth Malhotra, although slowly, but is steadily making a mark in the film industry. Having three movies – Reloaded, remake of Ittefaq and Aashiqui 3 – lined up for a 2017 release, Malhotra seems all geared up in making this year too. We hope this year is a remarkable one for both him and his fans and while these are all the known facts, let's look at all the not-so-known facts about this Punjabi munda who actually started his career with direction.
Siddharth pursued modeling at 16
At an age as young as 16, our hottie was approached by a modeling agent, which is how his modeling career began. He went on to become an international model.
Siddharth has won the title of Mr. Gujarat in the year 2007. In the same year, he also became the second runner-up at the Gladrags mega-model and manhunt.
He has been a TV actor too!
While most of us may not have noticed, the famous show Dharti Ka Veer Yodha Prithviraj Chauhan saw Siddharth Malhotra in the role of Jaichand.
He was to make his debut with Madhur Bhandarkar and not Karan Johar
Yes! His debut was not supposed to be in 2012 but in 2008. Siddharth was offered the role against Priyanka Chopra in the movie Fashion which he could not take due to his contract with Gladrags.
And then his looks…
Malhotra has also voted as the most good looking debutant by a UK poll. He then ranked 12th in The Times of India's list of '50 Most Desirable Men' in the year 2012.
On his 31st birthday today, we'd like to wish this Punjabi munda a very happy birthday!
