The buzz, how­ever, is that he and Kiara Ad­vani have just started see­ing each other

Sid­harth Mal­ho­tra has quashed ru­mours that he’s dat­ing fel­low ac­tor Kiara Ad­vani. He says he’s too busy with work right now to do any­thing else.

There was buzz that Sid­harth and the Lust Sto­ries ac­tor’s re­la­tion­ship is at a very nascent stage, ever since he at­tended Kiara’s birth­day bash, re­cently.

When Sid was asked about it, he said, “If ev­ery­thing you read would have been true, then kya baat hoti! I’m in re­la­tion­ship only with my work. I am too much in­volved in it right now and don’t have time for any­thing else.” He was ear­lier said to be dat­ing ac­tor Alia Bhatt for long, and was later linked-up with ac­tor Jac­que­line Fer­nan­dez.

On the pro­fes­sional front, Sid­harth will soon start two projects — an un­ti­tled love story with Pari­neeti Cho­pra and the Vikram Batra biopic. The ac­tor said that play­ing the In­dian army of­fi­cer, who was posthu­mously awarded the Param Vir Chakra for his ac­tions dur­ing the 1999 Kargil War, is his most chal­leng­ing role yet.

“It’s the tough­est role of my life. Prepa­ra­tions are in full swing. There is an emo­tional re­spon­si­bil­ity. When the fam­ily of Vikram Batra came to us and said they see me in that role, it’s a re­spon­si­bil­ity to tell their story. It took me nearly two years to set up this film, be in script ses­sions and find pro­duc­ers... Shoot­ing will be­gin soon,” he added. PTI
