When Karan Johar launches you as a hero in a movie, the world takes notice. And when Karan Johar launches two newbies, the world watches avidly to see who is better. As ‘Students’ Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan take small and steady steps in Bollywood firmament, they are still very much neck and neck.
Their hit ratio is almost the same — Sidharth has scored with ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ and ‘Ek Villain’ while Varun has ‘Main Tera Hero’ to his credit and his upcoming ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’ looks equally promising.
In just a year and a half since their debut, they have built a credible fanbase. Magazine covers, brand endorsements, social media traction, hit songs – Sidharth and Varun have taken to stardom just like their mentor would have hoped.
On screen they are carving their own niche. If Sidharth is dreamy then Varun is all energy, if Sidharth exudes good boy charm then Varun plays the loveable bad boy to the hilt. Both of them impress us in their own way. But there has to be a way to judge the strength of their popularity, right? Surely by now we should know who is the lambi race ka ghoda?
Salman Khan’s recent comment that “Sidharth didn’t get credit for his first film,” once again set us thinking about the vital question that still remains unanswered – who is better between the two? So, we invite you to solve this mystery.
