The untimely death of Sidharth Shukla on September 2, 2021, due to a heart attack left everyone numb. Back then many shared pictures and videos of the actor on social media platforms. However, actress Kamya Panjabi did not follow suit. The Shakti actress now in conversation with ETimes TV spoke about why she chose not to post anything on social media platforms. The actress mentioned she did not believe in showcasing the bond she shared with the late actor on the social media platform.
She said, “I was very close to Sidharth. Humne bohot saari parties kee hain. But unlike other actors, I didn’t post stories on Instagram to show ki hum kitne close the ya humne last kab baat kari. Jab sab khatam hua, I went to his house, but I didn’t post my conversations with his mother on social media.” Kamya was introduced to the late actor by Balika Vadhu actress actor Pratyusha Banerjee back in 2013 and two instantly struck chords.
The actress states who is yet to come to terms with his death wishes if she wouldn’t have met him, she won’t be in pain with his untimely death. “Mujhe kahiin na kahiin aisa lagta hai ki kyu hui woh dosti. Agar nahi hoti toh itna dukh aur itni takleef nahi hota aaj. His untimely and unfortunate demise has hit me so hard that I haven’t recovered from the shock yet. I still can’t accept that he is not there. Mujhe abhi bhi lagta hai woh kabhi bhi phone karega aur hum ghanto baat karenge,” said Kamya.
Regretting not meeting Sidharth Shukla post BB13, she is now making sure to spend time with her family, friends, as she feels life is unpredictable. She said, “Sidharth would make me laugh, call me after watching a scene from my show, or whenever I visited the Bigg Boss house to ask me maine ye kyu kiya, woh kyu kiya. We used to laugh so much. I regret ki hum phone par hi hasse, mil kar nahi hasse. I got so busy with work that I neglected my friends. But this incident has shaken me to an extent that I want to do that right now.” ALSO READ: SidNaaz Throwback: Look At Sidharth Shukla And Shehnaaz Gill's Fairy Tale Moments, Most Popular Love Story Of Indian Television
She added, “I am meeting my friends and spending time with them ever since Shakti has wrapped up. I want to watch films with my daughter, Aara, and have meals with my mother. I don’t want to regret anything in life. I have realised that life is unpredictable. One has to live in the moment.”
Kamya feels it took a huge loss to make one realize the importance of spending time with our loved ones. She added, “Pehle mujhe aisa lagta tha ki main aaj kaam karungi toh meri beti ka future secure hoga. Tomorrow if anything happens to me, mere gharwalon aur doston ko aisa na lage ki yeh toh kaam hi karti reh gayi, isko toh time hi nahi mila. Now, I will make sure that I get time to spend with my loved ones. I have understood that apart from money and security, we need some time, too. I am planning to spend my time wisely rather than thinking about what my next show will be. Ek bohot bada nuksaan hua hai ye realisation hone ke liye.” ALSO READ: Pavitra Punia Has A Sweet Message For Shehnaaz Gill After Sidharth Shukla's Untimely Demise: 'He Must Be Wishing She Gets Back To Normal Life'
