Though his official entry to Bollywood might be SOTY, Sid and showbiz go way back. Before becoming a heartthrob actor, Siddharth had made it to the industry by appearing on the ramp as well as behind the cameras. Sid started his career as a model at the age of 18. Though he was pretty successful, he decided to quit modeling after for years, being dissatisfied with his profession. He later began to pursue a career in films and thus successfully auditioned for an Anubhav Sinha film, which later got shelved. This gave Sid an opportunity to work as a trainee assistant art director to Karan Johar on My Name is Khan (2010). Two years later, SOTY happened and the rest is history. So, on Sid’s 36th birthday, here are ten of his wildest, weirdest and coolest modeling pictures that will make you go Baar Baar Dekho!
