Younger gen­er­a­tion of ac­tors is level-headed: Sid­harth Mal­ho­tra

Ac­tor Sid­harth Mal­ho­tra, who has been in Bol­ly­wood for more than four years now and acted in six films, says that his en­deav­our in most of his movies is to in­spire peo­ple. “Kapoor & Sons (2016) was about con­nect­ing more with your fam­ily. Ek Vil­lain (2014) was about the power to change some­thing from neg­a­tive to positive, and for­give­ness. So, the story has to have mean­ing. It is im­por­tant to in­spire through our sto­ries and cater to a wider va­ri­ety of au­di­ences,” says the ac­tor.

Ac­tor Ratna Pathak Shah, who played his mother in Kapoor & Sons, had said that Sid­harth was not self­ab­sorbed. “Ratna ma’am has way more ex­pe­ri­ence than me. Her state­ments carry more weight. It is sweet of her to say that,” says Sid­harth. How­ever, ask him if ac­tors, in gen­eral, are self-ab­sorbed or nar­cis­sis­tic, and he says, “I’ve mostly worked with the younger gen­er­a­tion. They are level-headed and well aware of their level of star­dom, and what it takes to be­come an ac­tor. Maybe be­cause none of us has reached that level of star­dom yet. We don’t come back home be­ing stars. Your fam­ily treats you the same.”
