Sidharth recalls his days of Misery; Says I didn't have enough Money to Pay Rent!

Sidharth Malhotra is one of the most successful debutants so far and talking about his struggling he revealed that surviving in Mumbai without a house can be slightly harsh...


Bollywood actor Sidharth Malhotra has been making his way to success. The actor stepped into Bollywood with Student of the Year (2012) that is known to be one of the most beloved films of all time. The young actor also went on to grab a nomination at Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut. 

Although during a recent interaction with Pinkvilla, the Marjaavaan actor revealed about the financial issues he suffered and how he didn't have enough money to pay rent. 

He revealed how difficult it was for him to settle in the new city and fight through the financial troubles he had.

For someone who doesn't have a home in Mumbai, the city, in its initial months, can be slightly harsh. When it comes to simplest things- even renting a house, there are issues. There's so much competition with jobs, plus it's an expensive city. There would be days when I didn't have enough money to pay for two things to eat. So I would order just one.


Sidharth’s journey so far was not a cakewalk and he had to struggle a lot to make it into the showbiz. The sheer hard-work and dedication for his work helped him to become a star today. 

He is one of the most talented stars who was launched by Karan Johar. Talking about his career, he said, "I was called to Mumbai by this production house who auditioned me in Delhi through my modelling agency. They promised me this film and they were supposed to train me for it. But unfortunately, that film never took off. I was prepping for it for about six-eight months. 

"In the initial few days, I stayed in their office and I was staying there when there was office going on. I was sleeping on the sofa for the first few days. But that film never took off and I had to give that place up. Then the real struggle started again. You are finding people to stay with, you can't afford rent."
