Siddharth Malhotra shares his experience of coming to Bollywood with no insider connections

Siddharth Malhotra has given many successful films in Bollywood since he made his Bollywood debut many years ago. The actor first appeared in Student of the Year where Karan Johar also introduced Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt. Now in a recent interview Siddharth Malhotra has confessed that his entry into the industry was very difficult. Siddharth also said that he did not think he could become an actor as he did not have insider connections.
 
During a virtual session, Malhotra said, "I never thought when I was a teenager that it was possible to become a Bollywood actor coming from Delhi with no connections to the films. They were not shaping me up to an actor but to become a good human being I would say. And I mean this with utmost humility and not saying that I am a perfect example, But just to say that there are some basic qualities, I think I have inherited from my family and that's what I keep giving to people."
 
Siddharth also said that he has learnt a lot from his father which later helped him succeed. "Whenever people talk about various issues within the country, starting with women's safety or security, it is something that the society has to fix and that stems from fixing the boys first. Having to give all the men in the world especially in India a good example starting from their fathers, because coming from experience I think subconsciously I have picked up so much from my father, even though he was traveling since he was in the merchant navy. He worked really hard to bring us up and give us a good lifestyle. That's when I realised that's where the key is," he added.
