Throughout the movie, it was endearing to watch Guru breaking boundaries to fulfil his wife’s last wishes and finding a home in her.

Sidharth’s Bollywood debut with ‘Student Of The Year’ made him an overnight sensation, being every girl’s heartthrob.

He was also seen stuck in a love triangle when he got smitten by Rohan’s girlfriend (Alia Bhatt). Helmed by Karan Johar, the movie was a fresh take on love and friendships.
04/6Arjun – Kapoor and Sons
Not all families are perfect, and that’s what helped in waving the craft in ‘Kapoor & Sons’.

He is often compared with his brother (Fawad Khan) who is a successful author which upsets him.
05/6Nikhil – Hasee Toh Phasee
Back in 2017, Vinil Mathew’s ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ taught us a very important lesson about relationships back then.

Things take a turn when he ends up falling in love with her smart, geeky and quirky sister, Meeta (Parineeti Chopra).
06/6Raghu – Marjaavan
For movie buffs who can bear with the intensity of 80’s cinema in this generation, Marjaavan consists of the right element of violence, drama and love to make it remarkable. Helmed by Milap Zaveri, the movie portrayed Sidharth Malhotra as Raghu – a loyal goon to a local thug controlling the water mafia, who falls in love with a charming muted lady (Tara Sutaria) which helps him come to terms with his softer side.
