Koffee With Karan has been running for about 15 years and it still has people interested. Though we get daily updates about our favourite Bollywood stars every now and then, about their upcoming movies, their personal lives, their fights, everything, because of the paps who do not leave a chance to miss out on a story, Koffee With Karan still manages to bring out the gossip which is unheard of, which is still relevant. One of the most publicised affairs of Bollywood was Siddharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt’s, who also debuted together with their first movie, Student of The Year.
Siddharth and Alia looked pretty well together and after dating for a couple of years, the two parted ways. On a recent episode of Koffee With Karan 6, Siddharth Malhotra graced the couch with his gym buddy, Aditya Roy Kapur. It was then that Karan Johar asked how things have been between him and his ex since their breakup, something which he has never spoken about, to the media, per se, and he revealed that things are cordial between the two but they haven’t met ever since. This is what he exactly said,
“We haven’t met after it. Our relationship is civil. I don’t think it’s bitter. It’s been a while. I have known her for much longer even before we dated. I gave my first ever shot with her in SOTY, I was crazy, and there is so much history”
Taking the discussion further, Johar asked whether he had any difficulty dealing with emotions and to remove the emotional dynamic which the two previously shared, Malhotra said,
“There is a reason why two people decide not to be together. There were lots of ups and downs. When you take yourself from a situation, you look at all the happy and good memories.”
Siddharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt dating rumors rose to surface in 2016 around the time when their second movie released, Kapoor and Sons which was a huge hit. They parted ways later. Now, Alia Bhatt is dating Ranbir Kapoor and are often seen hanging out together.
Ever since Kapoor and Sons, Malhotra hasn’t delivered an impactful hit. His previous four movies, Baar Baar Dekho, A Gentleman, Ittefaq, and Aiyaary, all went to receive a lukewarm response from the audience. When he was asked about it, he said,

“I just become quiet and aggressive. For me, I have come pretty far from where I grew up. So if I didn’t have the drive and the aggression, I wouldn’t have made it because there are millions of kids just like us who want to become leading actors. So my first reaction to something that I can’t get is aggression. Like kyun nahi(why not)?”
It has been a long journey for the man and he asserted that he lets his aggression drive him. On the work front, he will be next seen in Jabariya Jodi opposite Parineeti Chopra soon this year. It will be a romantic comedy based on forced marriages in India, highlighting the groom kidnapping tradition in Bihar to evade dowry. The movie is slated to hit the theatres on 17 May 2019 tentatively.
