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.

Bollywood’s most eligible bachelor Shahid Kapoor Weds!

The most eligible bachelor of Bollywood HYDER actor Shahid Kapoor got married to the Delhi-based Mira Rajput in the traditional Punjabi Style on Tuesday July 7, 2015.

According to reports the wedding ritual ceremony was held at a Gurudwara in Chhatarpur farm located on the outskirts of New Delhi in the morning at 11 a.m. according to auspicious mahurat 

The marriage was solely a close knit family affair that was attended by about 40 guests within the family, minus any celebrity from Bollywood. 

The couple Shahid Kapoor, 34 and Mira Rajput, 21, was dressed in the typical conventional Punjabi outfits and looked bewitching.

Shahid wore a cream color sherwani designed by Kunal Rawal. The yellow safa (turban) on his head gave him a real imperial look. 

On the other hand, Mira wore light pink and silver embroidered lehenga with a veil over her head designed by Anamika Khanna. What added to the splendor of Mira’s beauty was an elaborate Navratna neckpiece and earrings set. In addition the ‘maang-tika’ and a ‘jhoomar’ on the side of her head made her look a characteristic Indian bride. 

After the wedding rituals the newly wedded couple came outside the Gurudwara hand-in-hand and posed for a few minutes for the paparazzi desperately seeking their couple’s pictures. Addressing the media Shahid Kapoor said, “Thank you,” and drove away. 

Those spotted included Shahid's dad Pankaj Kapur, step-mother Supriya Pathak, and step-siblings Sanaah and Ruhaan. Surprisingly Shahid Kapoor’s biological mother Neelima Azeem was not spotted!! 

Though Neelima Azeem was present at the sangeet ceremony held on Monday night. 

After the wedding ritual a lavish party was arranged at The Oberoi in Gurgaon in the evening. The ballroom was booked for 500-odd guests; all invitees were mostly family memebers, some friends and members of the Radha Soami Satsang to which both families belong.

A star studded reception is apparently scheduled in Mumbai for July 12.
