Sidharth Malhotra, currently shooting for his next film with Jacqueline Fernandez, is set to fly to New Zealand for a quick getaway. The actor says this will be his time off from the busy schedule.

Amidst the gruelling shoot schedule, the actor has decided to escape to New Zealand and he can’t wait for the trip to start as this will be his second time to the country. He plans to double the indulgence that he had during his first trip in 2005.

“Taking some time off from my hectic schedule helps me focus my energies. Travelling to new places and exploring new cultures are enriching for an actor.

“I visited New Zealand last year, and the experience stayed with me. Surrounded by such incredible natural beauty, coupled with exhilarating experiences – it makes for the perfect escape into a different world altogether. I’m looking forward to an amazing getaway soon,” Sidharth said in a statement.

During his last journey, the actor participated in a traditional Maori war dance, did sky diving from 1500 ft and even played cricket on glacier with cricketer Stephen Fleming.

Reminiscing about his last visit, Sidharth said: “I am an adventure and fitness junkie, food and nature lover and my last trip gave me all of it. From the warm and welcoming people, fascinating culture to the stunning views, I couldn’t get enough of it. I knew I had to plan another trip to explore everything that New Zealand has to offer!”

He also suggested that there are a number of new activities planned for his upcoming trip.
