Sidharth Malhotra On His Special Bond With Kiara Advani

He’s riding high on the success of Shershaah. Sidharth Malhotra, who played Captain Vikram Batra in the film, has said how the role is among the most special one’s he’s played in his career. The film’s unit spent a long time researching the subject before the cast started shooting on location and the actor said that was one of the reasons why the film has been appreciated by audiences. The film saw him team up with Kiara Advani for the first time and the couple’s onscreen chemistry has been much appreciated.

In an interview, when the actor spoke about working with Kiara, he said, “This was our first time working together; we met a couple of years ago for the film. Before that, I had met her during the screening, and on the sets of ‘Lust Stories’ that she did with Karan Johar. We were so eager to get her on board for Dimple’s role because we felt that she has a great sense of earnestness and honesty as an actor which I really admire about her. She gives a sense of purity. On the sets, too, she is instinctive; I would want to do more takes, but she would be okay with it.”

He added, “I think even personally, there is a sense of regularness to her, which we both connect on. I am a boy who is from Delhi and I am not connected to the industry per se, but now have been here for many years. She has been working for a couple of years as well. We both have lives away from the industry and that is something that we connect on and cherish. Sometimes you get so embroiled in all these things that you forget to have a regular life. I think both of us have regular lives and that’s what we connect on.”
