In an interview with a daily, Alia while talking about her current relationship with ex-boyfriend Sidharth Malhotra, said, “I have a lot of love and respect for Sid. We started off together in the industry. I have known him for a long time and there’s too much history between us. Honestly, there will never be issues. I have nothing but just positivity in my heart for him. I’m sure he wishes the same as well. We have witnessed several milestones of our lives together. He spoke about meeting and chatting and we were fine. There are no bad vibes,”
On being asked whether she is on friendly terms with Sidharth , Alia said, “Yes, absolutely, why not? If two individuals can come to terms with whatever has happened and don’t keep things in their heart, it’s definitely possible.”
For those unaware, Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra dated each other for a brief period. However things went kaput and both decided to part ways. Interestingly, the duo never admitted of being in a relationship. However recently on Koffee with Karan season 6 when Sidharth was asked his equation with Alia, post their split, the actor said, “I don’t think it is bitter. I think we haven’t really met after that, to be honest. It’s civil. It has been a while. It happens, it’s like any other relationship. I have known her for much longer. I knew her from even before we were dating. So it’s not like we met as girlfriend-boyfriend. I think it will remain… It’s just a matter of us coming back, whether it is work or whether it is just socialising,”
While Alia is now in a serious relationship with Ranbir Kapoor, Sidharth’s name is often linked to Kiara Advani and Jacqueline Fernandez.
