Popular TV and film actor Sidharth Shukla passed away on September 2, leaving his gazillion fans heartbroken. Sidharth was cremated on September 3 in presence of his family, friends and rumoured girlfriend Shehnaaz Gill. His Dil Se Dil Tak co-star Rashami Desai had also attended his funeral. She was also seen with him and Shehnaaz on Bigg Boss 13, but the two apparently fought a lot on the show.
In a recent interview now, Rashami has opened up about her bond with the late actor. The actress revealed that she cancelled all the promotions of her song 'Subhanallah' when she heard the news of his death.
Speaking to ETimes, Rashami said, "I have experienced a lot of hard times in my life but I have never compromised my professional commitment. But this time I was seriously left broken. Sidharth was special, no doubt we fought, we had our issues but at the end of the day there was a good friendship and we cared for each other. I can say much but this time I couldn't keep going. I planned to not be part of any promotion activities for the song. I am lucky that our producer Shahzeb Azad understood my situaton and allowed me to grieve."

She told Bollywood Hungama, "I remember he called me when dad's thing happened. And I did not answer. And then he messaged me, and I started chatting with him for two-three minutes. He cheered me up. I had a smile on my face. I can't really share the chat with you, but I still go through that chat. And I'm going to share that with his family so that they get a smile on their face. Because they are definitely speaking to people and looking for an instance or a side of him probably which they don't know."
