Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra no more buddies, is Varun’s career upswing the reason?

Bollywood actors Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra started their acting career at the same time. And even before they did ‘Student of the Year’ (SOTY), the two worked as assistants to Karan Johar.

So it comes as a surprise that the two one-time buddies are no longer on talking terms with each other, and even avoid getting clicked together at events and award functions.

  • At the recently held HT Most Stylish Awards 2017, the two actors, although present at the venue, refused to get clicked together.
  • During Badrinath Ki Dulhania’s movie screenings, Sid was nowhere to be seen.
  • Varun skipped Alia Bhatt’s birthday party recently (probably because Sidharth was attending the bash)

Now these instances cannot be coincidences. It clearly suggests that all is not well between the two.

So is it because career insecurity on Sidharth Malhotra’s part?


Alia, Varun & Sidharth made their debut together in ‘Student of the Year’ (SOTY). While Alia Bhatt is already moving towards super stardom, Varun Dhawan has managed to feature in all successful movies (even as a solo hero). However, Sidharth has not yet been able to click as a solo hero yet.

Varun has already done several good films, with many more in the pipeline, but Sidharth’s movies have done poorly at the box-office.

While Varun Dhawan is getting stronger with every film and proving himself to be a bankable solo lead, Sidharth Malhotra has failed to do that.

So is this the real reason for their rift? What do you guys think?
