Is Sidharth Malhotra the Amitabh Bachchan of contemporary cinema?

Well it may sound strange to compare a new comer with the legendary actor like Amitabh Bachchan but a close look between the two does reveals there is much common between the two! Don’t believe? Read on….

Both hail from New Delhi and from respected and learned family. While Amitabh Bachchan’s father was a note poet and an author, Sidharth Malhotra’s father was a respected officer in Merchant Navy. 

Both are tall and above 6 feet, both graduate from New Delhi and quite studies for passion in acting. And last but not the least both made their presence in Bollywood solely on their talent minus any Godfather!


And that’s not all like Amiatbh Bachchan who dominated the 70’s and the 80’s daringly doing multi star movies like acting opposite bigger stars Dharmendra in SHOLAY or Shashi Kapoor in DEEWAR or Vinod Khanna in AMAR AKBAR ANTHONY or Shatrughan Sinha in DOSTANA etc. Likewise Sidharth Malhotra has become a specialist in doing multi star movies. 

In fact in his debut film Karan Johar's STUDENT OF THE YEAR, he was pitted against new comer Varun Dhawan. 

In his latest film BROTHERS he will be at loggerheads against the talented superstar Akshay Kumar, while in another forthcoming films KAPOOR & SONS, Sidharth Malhotra will locking horns with yet another enterprising actor Fawad Khan. 

Another interesting feature that Sidharth Malhotra shares with Big B is that unlike Bachchan he has no reservation doing negative roles. In the beginning Amitabh Bachchan did many negative roles like in PARWANA, he played the jilted lover, who murders the heroine’s father to win her love. 

Likewise Sidharth Malhotra will be playing a jilted lover in KAPOOR & SONS, where he loves the heroine (Alia Bhatt), but she is in love with his younger brother Fawad Khan.
