On International Women’s Day, Sidharth once spoke about his mom. He told Humans of Bombay, "People know me as a man with a rough exterior. But I’ll always melt for my mom. Right from the time I was born, she’s been the most important person in my life. I was the youngest of 3 kids and too small to play with my sisters, so I was always around mom. Back when I was a toddler, I’d cry if I had to go a second without her–so even while making rotis, she’d hold me in one hand & the roller in another!"

“When dad passed away 15 years ago, it felt like the umbrella over us had been taken away. But my mom was our rock–she never showed any signs of vulnerability. Despite our poor finances, she ran the house, looked after 3 kids and fulfilled all our demands! I know now that she must’ve had to sacrifice so much to give us what we wanted,” he added. The actor also said his mother used to tell him that she was proud of him. He called himself happiest for being able to make his mother smile. To him, she was the woman who meant everything.
