Malhotra returned to the big screen after a year apart, starring alongside Parineeti Chopra in the 2014 romantic comedy Hasee Toh Phasee, which portrays the love story of a scientist and an insecure ambitious businessman. The film was a commercial success, grossing more than 1.7 billion (US$21 million) worldwide. The film’s box office success positioned him as one of the most promising new actors in Hindi cinema. Malhotra then starred in Brothers, a 2015 remake of the 2011 American film Warrior directed by  Karan Malhotra and co-starring Akshay Kumar. The film received mixed reviews and performed poorly at the box office.

Career fluctuations (2016–2020)

Sidharth Malhotra (Actor) Born, Height, Weight, Wife, Career & MoreFollowing the success of Kapoor & Sons, Malhotra starred alongside Katrina Kaif in the romantic comedy Baar Baar Dekho as a time-traveling mathematician. The film, directed by Nitya Mehra, was met with critical acclaim. Later that year, he co-starred in the action comedy A Gentleman with Jacqueline Fernandez from writer-director combo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K., which was produced by Fox Star Studios; while being highly anticipated, it had a lukewarm reaction. Both films were flops at the box office.

Malhotra co-starred with Sonakshi Sinha in a 2017 remake of the 1969 mystery film  Ittefaq. The film, which was released in 2017, was well acclaimed by reviewers but bombed at the box office, earning only $500 million in total. Malhotra appeared in Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary (2018) alongside Manoj Bajpayee and Rakul Preet Singh. The picture debuted at 30 million and grossed 183.1 million dollars. In a bad review, Bollywood Hungama stated, “On the whole, Aiyaary misses the mark and is a huge letdown due to its flawed script and the lengthy run time.”

Malhotra’s two 2019 films were critically panned and termed box office flops. His second collaboration with Parineeti Chopra was the romantic comedy Jabariya Jodi. The film received terrible reviews and was deemed a disaster. Milap was his second appearance. Marjaavaan, an action film directed by Milan Zaveri and starring Ritesh Deshmukh and Tara Sutaria.

Shershaah and beyond (2021–present)

Malhotra starred in the biographical war film Shershaah, based on the life of Indian army soldier  Vikram Batra, in 2021. The film premiered on Amazon Prime Video after multiple delays due to the COVID-19 epidemic. Critics had conflicting feelings about it. Malhotra’s portrayal in particular received praise, with Saibal Chatterjee saying that he “has what it takes to flesh out a real-life martyr who has left behind a larger-than-life aura”. At the time of its release, Shershaah was the most-watched film on Prime Video in India.

The fantasy comedy Thank God, co-starring Ajay Devgn, was Malhotra’s sole feature release in 2022, and it failed commercially. In the thriller Mission Majnu the next year, he played an Indian spy stationed in Pakistan before to the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. The film was eventually released on Netflix after multiple delays from its planned theatrical premiere.
