Bollywood couple Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani are currently the talk of the town. The Shershaah co-stars, who have always remained hush-hush about their relationship, are reportedly tying the knot in the first week of February. For those of you who adored the couple's on-screen chemistry, may rest assured that their off-screen relationship is just as endearing!
Here's a detailed timeline of Sidharth and Kiara's adorable love story:
How It All Started...
Kiara and Sidharth have always kept their relationship a secret. While you may think that they first met on the sets of Shershaah, that's not the case. The couple first met at the wrap up party of Kiara's 2018 film Lust Stories.
Kiara herself confirmed it in Koffee With Karan Season 7, where she shared, "We started talking at the wrap-up party of Lust Stories, which we crashed. We casually met. I’ll never forget that night."
The Kabir Singh actor also confessed that she and Sidharth are definitely more than "close friends."
Their First Vacation Together
Kiara and Sidharth's relationship rumours first started doing the rounds when the pair was spotted flying to South Africa for their first New Year's vacation together in 2019. This was after the pair signed their first film together, producer Karan Johar's Shershaah.
Although the two refrained from sharing any photos of themselves together on social media, it was easy for fans to deduce that they were together.
The individual pictures that they posted on their Instagram accounts were not only captured in the same location, but their captions were also strikingly similar.
Sharing her sun-kissed pictures from the adventurous safari in South Africa, Kiara captioned them, "Walking safari. #OneWithNature.
Whereas, Sidharth also shared similar pictures on his Instagram account, captioning them, "Starting the year with soaking up the morning sun. Mother Nature at its best!"
During the shoot of Shershaah, the two spent a lot of time together and grew closer.
Their On & Off Screen Chemistry
Kiara and Sidharth began promoting the release of Shershaah, their first film together. The duo kept their fans glued to their social media handles with romantic reels and pictures that featured themselves. Given their natural chemistry, many fans claimed that the two weren't being as low-key about their relationship as they were trying to be.
Before the premiere of their film in 2021, Kiara also celebrated her 29th birthday with Sidharth. The Student of the Year actor was also spotted in a reel that Kiara posted from the celebration. While her caption suggested that the celebration comprised her "oldest and goldest crew," Sidharth was undoubtedly the new addition.

The Frequent Public Appearances
After the release of Shershaah, the couple made frequent public appearances together. In January 2021, they were spotted at the airport returning from their second New Year's vacation in the Maldives. As per reports, Kiara also met Sidharth's parents following their return to Mumbai.
In August 2022, Kiara and Sidharth appeared on Koffee With Karan Season 7 separately, but Karan made sure they spilled the beans about their relationship. When Karan asked the actor about his wedding plans with Kiara, without denying or accepting the rumours, he said that he is manifesting "a bright future" with her.
Besides, the couple also celebrated one year of Shershaah's release together in the same month. Sidharth also took to Instagram to share another reel featuring himself and Kiara getting all lovey-dovey. He captioned it, "#1YearOfShershaah #SameFeelDifferentReel Yeh Dil Maange More (This heart wants more)."
