Fresh from the success of 'Brothers', actor Sidharth Malhotra says he takes it as a compliment that not even a single woman has offered to make him her 'rakhi brother'.

It's no secret that girls are enamoured with Sidharth's good looks, and so, this comes as no surprise that no woman has offered to tie a rakhi on his wrist.
With Raksha Bandhan, a Hindu festival that celebrates love between brothers and sisters, approaching on August 29 this year, Sidharth, unlike other men, won't be busy getting his wrist filled with colourful sacred strings.
Asked about any fond memory of the festival, Sidharth, who has an older brother, told IANS: "In school, no girl offered to tie me a rakhi. So, it was a compliment. In my family also, we don't follow that. We do Tika, a Punjabi festival which involves a sister applying 'tika' (on the forehead)."
For now, he's soaking in the success of 'Brothers', and geared up for more films.
