Mumbai: ‘Gentleman’ Sidharth Malhotra is currently juggling between the promotions of his upcoming film ‘A Gentleman’ with Jacqueline Fernandez and shooting for his another film ‘Aiyaary.’

While enough has been said about Sidharth and alleged girlfriend Alia Bhatt being paired for ‘Aashiqui 3,’ nothing concrete has been announced. However, they’ve often been spotted at Vishesh Films office discussing ‘Aashiqui 3.’

 

Ask Sidharth about this association, he says, "I was approached a while ago. It's a great franchise, I loved 'Aashiqui 2' and I've worked with both its director Mohit Suri and Alia. We are waiting to get it all on paper. We want to present a better version of the franchise. Once we finish our prior commitments we will start on 'Aashiqui 3'."

Well, talking about his link-up with Alia, his first co-star, the ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ he exclaimed, "Why only Alia? I've been linked with almost all my co-stars except Akshay Kumar." When further quizzed about his equation with Jacqueline, Sidharth added, "We have worked in Brothers earlier but since we didn't have any scenes together the only bonding happened during the promotions. She's easy to get along with and doesn't need ice-breakers. Stress, personal or professional, doesn't affect her mood. She's always happy and chirpy, a hardworking, self-made girl."

 

Ever since, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth debuted together, enough comparisons have been made between the two, and brushing off the comparisons, Sidharth said, "It's like any other news. I have better ways to spend time than keep myself updated on what's written about me. I'd rather expend energy on work. You are not the only player in any industry so comparisons are inevitable but in my journey to become an actor I had to work really hard, give so many auditions..."

Sidharth, Alia and Varun are Karan Johar’s protégés, and Alia, Varun discuss their films with Karan, so when quizzed if even Sidharth seeks mentor Karan’s advice before taking up any film, he divulged that he believes on his instincts.

 

He further added, "Well, he's a leading filmmaker, in tune with the times and a relevant personality in the industry. You can talk to him about anything. I don't consult him on everything. All the decisions I've made after SOTY have been predominantly guided by instinct. If someone like Karan seconds it, it's great, if not, I still go ahead and hope for the best. It's not mandatory but he's there if required. There aren't too many people I can trust or seek guidance from."
