Sidharth Malhotra, an actor by chance?

While talking to a daily, Sidharth Malhotra shared about his ticket to Bollywood, and what made him become an actor?  A lot of young aspiring actors come to the city of dreams in search of that one opportunity which could transform their career. But for the Marjaavaan actor, it was totally different.
