Sidharth Malhotra is the next Shah Rukh Khan of Bollywood ?

Sidharth Malhotra is the next big thing of Bollywood. The quiet actor who debuted in Student of The Year alongside Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan is coming out to be a promising talent who has caught everyone’s attention. If buzz is to be believed, he has more films in his kitty than most of his contemporaries including Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor. And if that is not enough, all these films come from big banners including Dharma Productions and Balaji Motion Pictures.

Sidharth is barely three films old in the industry, with SOTY, Hasee Toh Phasee and now Ek Villain which is ready to hit the theatres. However, it seems that he has already impressed filmmakers with his acting mettle. Sidharth has signed a non-exclusive two film deal with Balaji Motion Pictures. Likewise, the man has bagged three films with Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, which include remake of popular French film Priceless which will be co-produced by UTV Motion Pictures, Karan Malhotra’s Warrior and Shakun Batra’s yet untitled directorial venture. Besides, the man shall also play a supernatural character in Vikramaditya Motwane’s Bhavesh Joshi.

With such a line-up of films under his hat already, the man is going great guns with his Bollywood career.

The no-fuss involved actor is giving great competition to his contemporaries like Ranbir Kapoor who also has a string of good films; however, the film count is not as great, nor are the banners.

As far as Ranbir is concerned, he currently has Anurag Khashyap’s Bombay Velvet, Jagga Jasoos with Anurag Basu which he will co-produce as well. And then he has Vicky Singh’s Roy followed by Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha.

Plus, it is also interesting to note that Dharma Productions is the same production house that backed Shah Rukh Khan in his formative years in Bollywood.

Can we say that Sidharth Malhotra is the next Shah Rukh Khan of Bollywood? Well, only time will tell.
