Sidharth Malhotra on marriage: Love or arranged, I believe in the institution and haven’t ruled out the possibility of it
Actor Sidharth Malhotra has been linked to multiple actresses including Alia Bhatt. While he did face pressure from his parents back in the day, the 34-year-old actor is free to live life his way now. Fair enough, he just hasn’t found the ‘right one’ yet!
There was a time actor Sidharth Malhotra was linked to every actress he worked with including his longtime bestie and starlet Alia Bhatt. However, he never admitted to having dated any of them. While many assumed he is not interested in tying the knot ever, the actor has now revealed that he never ruled out the possibility of marriage and strongly believes in the institution. Fair enough, he just hasn’t found the ‘right one’ yet! Sidharth’s recent revelations were very much needed to be heard by his fans and critics alike. While he did face pressure from his parents back in the day, the 34-year-old actor is free to live life his way now.
In a recent interview, the Student of the Year actor said, “My parents had a love marriage and they have been living together for almost 40 years now. My brother is happily married and living with his wife. My uncles are happily sharing blissful married lives,” He added, “My parents would emotionally blackmail me earlier but not anymore. There is no pressure about marriage. I have not planned whether it will be a love or an arranged marriage. Whatever has to happen will happen. I am open to anything, be it love or arranged marriage. I believe in the institution of marriage.”
On another note, Sidharth opened up about his sartorial preferences and his obsession with shoes. “I love collecting shoes, of all different styles and colours. Perhaps my love for shoes pushes me to buy more and more. But lately, I have developed a habit: I do like to give my old shoes to charity or people who are in need of shoes,” he revealed, adding he does not know the exact number of pairs he has. “I have a new house. And though I have not counted the number of shoes I own, I have a room where I have three cupboards full of shoes. This room is especially for my shoes and clothes,” Sidharth concluded.
