The unexpected levels of success Mohit Suri۪s Ek Villain۪ (2014) saw has sent actor Sidharth Malhotra to cloud 9. The icing on the cake, for the young star, was when megastar Salman Khan arrived at the success party Malhotra held for the film at his residence.
It was so nice and encouraging of him to come. He didn۪t need to. It۪s rare to find successful people celebrate other people۪s success. He was so warm and supportive. He stayed for hours, chilling in my house, playing with my dog. He gave me advice and we were chatting, laughing_ he has a great sense of humour! I understand his stardom now. It۪s all heart. He makes you realise that there are good people here. Keep all the politics aside, all the conjectures aside, jealousies aside. He was purely there to congratulate us, Malhotra told Filmfare.
When asked about the gift Khan apparently gave him, the actor confirmed the rumour, saying, He gifted me an expensive watch_ it۪s a prized possession, I۪ll cherish forever. I will make him sign it.
Malhotra also went on to say that he hopes he can go on to becoming as gracious as Salman Khan when he is a senior in the industry.
