Karan Johar's find Sidharth Malhotra is going great guns and there is no second thought about it! He is rare lucky young actor to have worked with the three most sought-after actresses of B-town currently, Alia Bhatt, Parineeti Chopra and Shraddha Kapoor right at the beginning of his career!


While he made his debut with Alia Bhatt in STUDENT OF THE YEAR, his second film was with Parineeti Chopra HASEE TOH PHASEE and now Sidharth will be seen sharing screen space with Shraddha Kapoor in EK VILLAIN.

Ask him how it feels romancing the three lovely ladies of Bollywood, who are highly in demand, and Sidharth swiftly says, ''Alia and we started together so there is no luck factor involved there. We both were nobody, when we began our journey. So, I would say only Parineeti and Shraddha have been the choices. Shraddha was on board because of Mohit Suri. And I think she was very apt and has done great job. She has done unique and different work muck like her earlier film AASHIQUI 2.''

However, poke Sidharth to rate each of them according to their talent, sensibility and sensuality respectively and he gets diplomatic, ''I am nobody to rate them. I can just talk about the experiences,'' and adds with a pause, ''...Alia and I met as unaware and lost kids. We were new and discovering everything about the industry. So there is a great bond which I share as she has been my first co-star and that will never change. It's the history we'll share for the rest of the life. It's been an emotional bond and I feel protective of Alia at times. While Parineeti is a different actor, a go-getter, always focused and ambitious. She's always on the toes what to do next and spunky energetic. It was great working with her in HASEE TOH PHASEE. We had goofy scenes and funny content.''

''Shraddha came across to me as an intense actor. Since EK VILLAIN was a heavy film and emotionally exhausting, so we needed to be in the characters all the time. I think we performed for each other. With Shraddha, it was slightly more professional environment,'' adds the heartthrob further.

Also starring Riteish Deshmukh, EK VILLAIN, made under Balaji Motion Pictures banner, is set to hit the screens on June 27, 2014
