‘We are great friends’

MUMBAI: Amid rumours of his romance with Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt, actor Sidharth Malhotra insists they are “great friends”.

“We are great friends and colleagues, and soon we have a film coming up called Kapoor and Sons,” Malhotra told PTI.

“We (Alia and I) have a great working relationship. I know her since my first film, so there is an emotional connect. We have always been there for each other’s films. We knew each other before we did films so

that bond never changes,” the 31-year-old actor said.

On various occasions, from film screenings to parties and events, Malhotra and Bhatt have been often seen together.

Initially, media reports used to affect Malhotra’s family, but now the Indian actor says they are getting used to it. “We all are professionals and we know how to work for the film or a scene. Initially it used to affect my family, they are in Delhi...they were not aware about all this...how and what is written. They used to question. We are getting trained and used to it,” he said.
