His first film Student Of The Year (SOTY) hasn't even released but newcomer Sidharth Malhotra is already getting noticed by big banners. The buzz is that Ekta Kapoor has roped in Sidharth for a two-film deal with her production house Balaji Motion Pictures.
It's a known fact that Ekta and Karan Johar are good friends and Ekta immediately approached Karan after she was impressed with Sidharth Malhotra's screen presence and acting prowess in SOTY. While Sidharth is in a contract with Dharma Productions, it's a non-exclusive contract which allows him to work outside of the banner as well.
Looks like this 'Student' has already passed the test with flying colours!
