Sidhartha, the son of industrialist Vijay Mallya, was born and brought up in London. He made the headlines ever since he started being seen with Deepika Padukone. She has nearly always been seen cheering for his IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore that is owned by his dad. He has also featured on Simi Garewal's show 'India's Most Desirable' which began airing in June 2011. Around the same time Sidhartha and Deepika were also spotted together in Bali where they attended his step-sister Laila's wedding.
