Girls never wanted to tie a rakhi on Sid
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.
