Bengaluru Football Club player Gurpreet Singh Sandhu is often mistaken to be actor Sidharth Malhotra on social media. One of his fans tagged Gurpreet in an image where someone again confused him with the Bollywood actor. On Gurpreet’s image, the person commented that he is a big fan and has watched the movie Student of the Year (SOTY), which is actually Sidharth’s debut film.
Tagging Gurpreet, his fan Manju said, “Check this one paaji.”

To this hilarious picture, the footballer replied with a GIF and said, “In parallel universe @SidMalhotra must be a goalkeeper.” Gurpreet is a goalkeeper himself so his tweet indicates that like he is mistaken for an actor, Sidharth must be a goalkeeper in the parallel universe.
Pointing towards an interesting thing, a Twitter user jokingly said that the confusion might be happening because Sidharth played a football match in the movie SOTY.
In SOTY, Sid played a football match
May be that's why 😂😂😂😂
