Sidharth Malhotra gets candid about his personal life, his shoe obsession and how he likes to shop.
The dashing Sidharth Malhotra is no stranger to dating rumours. The actor, who has been linked with almost every single female co-star that he has worked with, has somehow never ‘officially’ dated anyone.
Nevertheless, the Brothers actor is a believer in marriage. “My parents had a love marriage and they have been living together for almost 40 years now. My brother is happily married and living with his wife. My uncles are happily sharing blissful married life,” he shares, adding, “My parents would blackmail me emotionally earlier, but not anymore. There is no pressure about marriage. I have not planned whether it will be a love or an arranged marriage. Whatever has to happen will happen. I am open to anything, be it love or arranged marriage. I believe in the institution of marriage.”
Switching gears to his sartorial preferences, Sid opens up about his obsession with shoes. “I love collecting shoes, of all different styles and colours. Perhaps my love for shoes pushes me to buy more and more. But lately, I have developed a habit: I do like to give my old shoes to charity, or people who are in need of shoes,” he reveals, adding that he isn’t particularly attached to his shoes, nor does he know the exact number of pairs he has.
“I have a new house. And though I have not counted the number of shoes I own, I have a room where I have three cupboards full of shoes. This room is especially for my shoes and clothes,” the Student of the Year actor blushes.
When asked about where he likes to shop, Sid says that his busy schedule only allows him to shop online. “I prefer online shopping, mostly because I travel a lot and don’t have time,” he says.
Meanwhile, on the work front, the actor will be seen opposite Parineeti Chopra in Jabariya Jodi. “This film an attempt to try something different. I think this is the time when I am getting to do varied roles,” he concludes.
