The Indian movie and television industry got a rude shock this morning when people came to know about the news of actor Sidharth Shukla’s departure unexpectedly. Sidharth Shukla who was just 40 years old was one of the most popular actors of the television world and he enjoyed a huge following on the social media networks.
The fans of the actor are not even able to believe that he is not with them now and they won’t be able to see more of him anymore. As per the reports, Sidharth suffered from cardiac arrest and he took his last breath even before reaching the hospital. Police has started an investigation into this matter but as per the initial reports, no sign of any injury has been found on the actor’s body.
Sidharth Shukla had a bachelor degree in interior designing and he started his showbiz career with modeling. What’s more, he became the first Indian as well as the first Asian to win the World’s Best Model contest held in Turkey in the year 2005. He competed against 40 models from different countries to win this title and it gave a boost to his modeling career as he got many endorsements and music videos after that.
In 2008, Sidharth Shukla made his TV debut with Babul Ka Aangann Chootey Na and although he worked in many serials, his most popular show was Balika Vadhu which was based on child marriage custom. Sidharth also worked in “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania” which was his debut movie, it also starred Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt in lead roles and was bankrolled by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions.
Sidharth Shukla also participated in reality shows; he won the Fear Factor: Khatron Ka Khiladi in 2016 and in the year 2019, he created history by winning Bigg Boss which is one of the most watched and controversial Indian TV reality shows and is hosted by Bollywood superstar Salman Khan.
Sidharth was the most popular contestant of the show and people loved his chemistry with actress Shehnaaz Kaur Gill. Some time ago, Sidharth made his OTT debut with Broken But Beautiful 3 and his acting was loved and praised by the audiences.
Not just Sidharth Shukla’s fans but many celebs also took to Twitter to express their disbelief and grief over this unfortunate incident. Here are some reactions:
