Since 2015, Sidharth Malhotra has struggled to find commercial success. While big projects like Brothers and Baar Baar Dekho tanked at the box office, his critically-acclaimed films like Ittefaq too failed to make a dent. His last success came in 2016 with the popular film Kapoor & Sons.
During the promotions for Aiyyary on Big Boss 11, Sidharth seemingly insulted Bhojpuri language that caused outrage among many celebs of Bhojpuri descent.
