Actor Sidharth Malhotra forgot to pay his phone bill for the month of October and, as a result, his outgoing calls were barred for a day.
“Since he hails from Delhi, and lives alone in Mumbai, Sidharth looks into the ­payment of phone bills and other ­utilities himself. He doesn’t have an assistant to run his errands, and finds it convenient to take time out at night — usually post pack-up — to finish these chores,” said a source.
However, a busy schedule for his upcoming film kept the actor busy, and he missed out on his bill payment. “Due to the delay, the service provider barred his outgoing calls,” says the source.
It was quite embarrassing for the actor, as he had no way of returning calls all day. When contacted, Sidharth says, “Because of a hectic shooting schedule, I got late in paying my phone bill and my outgoing calls were barred. I could not return calls for a day.”
