Alia, Siddharth and Varun celebrate 10 years in the film industry
Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt, and Varun Dhawan completed 10 years in the film industry on. A decade ago, the three entered Bollywood with Dharma Production's movie 'Student of the Year', where they became instantly famous for their portrayals of quirky love-struck college students.
On the occasion, Sidharth Malhotra posted a video with a heartfelt note on his verified social media profile.
The film's director, Karan Johar, wrote in his note: "SOTY started off as me making a "holiday film"... A film that certainly wasn't intended to move any cinematic mountains but a film that was young, fun and entertaining... What I didn't realise then that this film would give me so much more than memories or a commercial success... would give so much more than a film in my directorial archives... this film gave me three of my most defining relationships."
In today's industry, Alia, Varun and Sidharth have enjoyed successful careers in Bollywood.
Alia Bhatt had three back-to-back box office hits in 2022 —"RRR", "Gangubai Kathiawadi" and "Brahmastra" — she is one of the youngest actresses to achieve this milestone.
Interestingly, both Varun and Alia were branded as 'products of nepotism' at first, but Alia was able to prove her worth. Even Varun went to star in successful projects like "Dilwale", "Judwaa 2" and "Badlapur". Varun's capability as an actor shone through in Shoojit Sircar's critically acclaimed October.
Sidharth's career had its ups and downs, but his work in "Shershaah", "Ek Villain" and "Ittefaq" speak for themselves.
