Instagram: Sidharth Malhotra


With digital medium growing by leaps and bounds, there is a long of Bollywood celebrities who are eyeing interesting characters to play on OTT platforms. From Akshay Kumar to Jacqueline Fernandez, there are several A-list actors who have already announced their digital debuts with much fanfare.

However, Sidharth Malhotra seems in no hurry to take the plunge. He says that he is getting exciting characters to play in films, which gives him a lot of creative satisfaction. “I have enough interesting characters to play in movies, whether it is Marjaavaan or Shershaah. I am essaying different characters with distinct flavours. I am personally getting a lot of creative satisfaction as an actor. So, it is not like ‘Oh! I will get to play this or that on the web’. I am getting to portray enough and more characters in movies,” said the handsome actor.

Malhotra, who was most recently seen in Ekta Kapoor’s Jabariya Jodi (2019) opposite Parineeti Chopra, is, however, not completely averse to the idea of doing web shows. He says he may consider a web series in the future, “So, maybe somewhere in the far-off future when I am not creatively satisfied with the characters in movies, I will think of doing a web show. We will have to wait and watch what excites actors and what turns up (in the digital space) then.”
