Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt never publicly admitted or denied to being in a relationship, but fans were smart enough to understand that something was cooking between the two. However, the recent buzz is that the "Kapoor and Sons" pair has parted ways and have not been on talking terms for a long time.

According to a Mumbai Mirror report, Alia and Sidharth called it quits a month ago and are barely speaking to each other. Several reports hinted at various reasons behind their break-up. From Sid-Alia's fight over the actress' ex-boyfriend to their tiffs over Shraddha Kapoor, many speculations have been doing the rounds regarding the actors' split.

Sidharth and Alia used to gush about each other at events, thus, making their relationship evident to publicly. But now the duo is hardly spotted together and also, they were supposed to do "Aashiqui 3" together as confirmed by Sidharth earlier. Later, Alia rubbished the reports and denied having signed the film.

In fact, in an interview with a leading daily, Alia confessed that she is single and Sidharth is just a friend. "I am single and Sid is a supportive and extremely important friend in my life and will always be that. As a friend, rather than asking him not to do films with any actress, I keep telling Sid to work with every person because I think he has all the charm, talent and sexiness in the world and the potential to become the biggest superstar of this country! Never in my life, will we ever tell each other what we should or should not do," Alia told DNA.

Meanwhile, Alia and Sidharth are busy with their respective projects. Alia will be seen in "Udta Punjab," "Badrinath Ki Dulhania" and Gauri Shinde's untitled film. And, Sidharth will appear in "Baar Baar Dekho" opposite Katrina Kaif. He has also been roped in for the remake of Rajesh Khanna's "Ittefaq."
