"Whatever is going on inside the house with Sidharth Shukla is absurd. He is being taunted and things are being said to him, in relation to a few past incidents, which are below the belt. He doesn't want to speak out loud about those things, and hence his frustration is coming out in the form of extreme anger. I am Sidharth's close friend and I am disturbed about how he is the chosen one for obnoxious comments," said actress-model Natasha Singh (of TV shows like Dekh Bhai Dekh, Milan, Oh Daddy and the play Four Play)), a close friend of Sidharth Shukla, when we called her this evening.
Natasha did not mince words to support Sidharth Shukla, with whom she sorted out her issues last year, when their friendship had gone awry. "Sidharth's image is coming out as that of a playboy- but he isn't one. Nobody is speaking for him except a few people from the industry, none of this friends actually- which is why I really want to talk for him. Good that you called me. Frankly speaking, he has been very close to me and we have played a very important part in each other's life. He is like a soul friend to me."
We chose the opportunity to ask Natasha if what we had heard was right. A little birdie had told us last week that Sidharth was in a very disturbed state of mind when his car met with an accident, last year. "Well, I don't know where he was coming from. But I know certain things for sure- he had not eaten, his BP went low, and he blacked out. That's why the accident happened but it was reported in a very careless manner- road rage, aaiyash and all that. I am shocked that the mention of the accident was done in a very shoddy manner in Bigg Boss 13 too."
We were not going to hold back from asking Natasha about Rashami Desai who had a very rocky relationship with Sidharth and it ended on the point when her mistrust issues multiplied beyond limit. About Rashami, Natasha said, " I don't know their personal life details but I know for a fact that they were very close even after Sidharth exited Dill Se Dill Tak. Paras Chhabra and Rashami keep saying in the show 'poore Mumbai ko pata hai that he is a haivaan', toh i want to ask why that woman (Read: Rashami) 'why was she close to him after he exited Dil Se Dil Tak?'. It's a shame that she's talking like this about him despite having been close to him."
You know what, said Natasha. What. we asked? Said Natasha, "One by one people were turning against him in Dill Se Dill Tak, and the last person who turned against him was a very close friend (Read: Jasmin Bhasin). This shattered him.
Trust me, he has not spoken ill about Rashami to me, till date. Even when they were fighting in the show, he never spoke badly about her." Natasha added, "Therefore, I was livid the most when Rashami called him 'namard' on the show, amongst other s**t. Rashami apologized to him later, but I am shocked beyond words by that comment. Who talks like that?"
The next thing in line to ask Natasha was about Paras' behaviour- the BIG STORY that we broke when Paras hit Sidharth below the belt, telling him that because he didn't 'under' 'stand', teriwali mere paas hai. The name though not taken, clearly meant Akanksha Puri. While Akanksha confirmed with us that Paras was taking out his grudges against Sidharth in the show because Sidharth and she were linked-up (but not dating each other in the past, in 2016 to be precise), Natasha has a question for her, "I know for a fact Sidharth did not date her, but why didn't she come out to declare this for 3 full years that she and Sidharth were never involved with each other?" Natasha further said, "As for Paras venting out ire against Sidharth, his girlfriend is now saying in the media that Sidharth was just a friend. So, isn't it strange that Paras doesn't know that? Didn't she ever tell him? Doesn't he believe her? Or, was this also told to him by his driver, as he claimed about a few other things (to Devoleena Bhattacharjee) in the show?"
Natasha, please describe Sidharth. Elaborated Natasha, "He is balanced, he is sensible but if you're his friend, he expects you to understand and trust him. People have spoken s**t about him and cried that they are sorry they spoke that way. I have learnt over the years, that he never lies. He does have anger issues, but he is working on that. He goes to Brahma Kumaris with his mother. It is not very easy to describe him because frankly he isn't very simple. But who on earth is perfect?"
Mahira Sharma called him a '40 years ka buddha'. Natasha retorted, "Oh, that was pits. First of all 40 is not buddha and Sidharth is not yet 40, moreover Sidharth doesn't look buddha from any angle.
It's not only Mahira who has a family. Others, including Sidharth, have one too. And, such things perturb them."
Has Sidharth made wrong choices when it comes to women, or has he been plain unlucky in love, or scared of commitment? Pat came the reply, "Sidharth and I are very similar in many ways. We both are Sagittarians- frank and outspoken. We don't think much before talking. We are idealistic. We seek positive vibes and when we see negativity, we get perturbed."
The 64-million dollar question: Has Natasha been asked to join Bigg Boss 13? "Not at all. Friends tell me that if I ever go, I won't last in the game for more than 3 days," Natasha concluded.
