The "Student Of The Year" actor, who has been named the first Indian ambassador for Tourism New Zealand, landed here on Sunday morning to a warm welcome by his fans at the airport.
And just about an hour later, he was on his way to walk on the edge of the 1.2 metre-wide walkway around the world famous SkyTower, which stands tall at 325 metres.

"Surreal" is the word that came to Sidharth's mind right after he finished his walk.

"My experience was amazing. It is a one-of-its-kind activity, and so you don't even really know what you should expect, because you're walking outside one of the tallest building (325 metres) in the southern hemisphere," Sidharth said.

Would he recommend it to any of his Bollywood friends?

"Akshay paaji (Akshay Kumar) would want to do it definitely, and he would do it easily! He will jump off (SkyJump). I would surely tell him, 'Akshay sir, please check this out'."

It was a windy day, but a clear blue sky and a little sunshine made it perfect for Sidharth to soak in a bird's eye view of the city, known for its picturesque landscape.

He admits the thought of walking without handrails is scary at first, but said: "After a point, it becomes such a surreal experience to lean back and let's so on the edge."

Sidharth said that while he has no phobia of heights, he feels if people who are scared of heights could attempt this "safe adventure", the experience could help them let go of it.

"It's a great mix of adventure sport and taking in a view of the city," he added.
