It takes many years to establish in Bollywood, but actor Sidharth Malhotra has achieved stardom in just 5 years. With huge youth fan following, Sidharth has given some good box office hits in Bollywood. Despite of being successful in Bollywood, the actor still remembers his old days. He still reminisces about how he had spent his first paycheck. The actor had received Rs 1 Lakh from Dharma Productions on signing for his debut movie Student of the Year. Talking about the same, the actor revealed, “I had not told my friends that I have signed a movie and that too under Dharma Productions banner. My friends and I had gone to Pune to meet another friend who stays there. One evening, when I told them about my debut film, they were shocked. They asked me to treat them and we ended up getting a bill of Rs 50, 000. I told them that half the salary of my first paycheck has already blown up.” Sidharth mentions about his friends being still close to him.
Adding further Siddharth said, “Before signing my first film, I used to work as an assistant editor and used to get Rs 18,000 as salary but I never received such an amount when I was modelling. Spending such a big amount for my big break is definitely justified.”
Directed by Raj and DK, Sidharth will star along with Jacqueline Fernandes in A Gentleman which is produced under the banner of Fox Star studios. The film is scheduled to release on August 25th, 2017.
