Sid­harth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt’s break up be­came the talk of the town amid re­ports that Sid had found love in his A Gen­tle­man co-star Jac­que­line Fer­nan­dez. And then came buzz that the two are back to­gether af­ter film­maker Karan Jo­har helped sort out their dif­fer­ences.

When we asked Sid­harth about all the talk around his re­la­tion­ship sta­tus, he said, “I don’t know what peo­ple are say­ing but I hope ev­ery­one is say­ing good things. (Laughs) I have been sin­gle all this while, since the day I moved to Mum­bai. So, I have kind of got used to be­ing on my own with­out my fam­ily. Life has been won­der­ful with lots of ups and downs. While on my jour­ney so far, I have met many peo­ple and have had the op­por­tu­nity to make friends with some of them. And I am not com­plain­ing.”

The 32-year-old ac­tor, who is rid­ing high on the ap­pre­ci­a­tion his lat­est film It­te­faq has re­ceived from both crit­ics and au­di­ence, adds that he has no time for love. “There is so much work that there is no time to put my en­ergy any­where else.”

What about all the link-up sto­ries with Alia and Jac­que­line ? “I have been linked with ev­ery ac­tor I have worked with. Won­der why I have never been linked with Ak­shay Ku­mar (co-star in Broth­ers). I feel bad for Ak­shay,” he says. We ask how he would de­scribe his re­la­tion­ship with Alia, and he keeps it short. “Alia and I have al­ways been good friends.”
