Girls never wanted to tie a rakhi on Sid

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Fresh from the re­lease of his film, ac­tor Sid­harth Mal­ho­tra (right) says he takes it as a com­pli­ment that not even a sin­gle woman has of­fered to make him her ‘rakhi brother’.

With Rak­sha Band­han, a fes­ti­val that cel­e­brates love be­tween broth­ers and sis­ters, ap­proach­ing on Au­gust 29 this year, Sid­harth says he won’t be busy get­ting his wrist filled with colour­ful sa­cred strings. Asked about any fond mem­ory of the fes­ti­val, Sid­harth, said: “In school, no girl of­fered to tie me a rakhi. So, it was a com­pli­ment. In my fam­ily also, we don’t fol­low that. We do Tika, a Pun­jabi fes­ti­val which in­volves a sis­ter ap­ply­ing ‘tika’ (on the fore­head).”

Asked about re­ports that he would be re­plac­ing Hrithik Roshan in the Bang Bang! se­quel, the ac­tor says “so far there is no such of­fi­cial news”. Though he didn’t con­firm sign­ing the film, he did share that he will start work­ing on an ac­tion film soon.
