Sidharth Shukla’s untimely demise was a major blow to the industry, as he was just 40 and had so much to do. His massive fan following still cannot come to terms with the fact that the actor is no more. Be it his stint on Bigg Boss 13, Balika Vadhu or Broken But Beautiful 3, the actor always managed to win hearts - especially with the latter as he played the angry young man, Agastya Rao in his OTT debut.
Sidharth's performance as Agastya Rao was loved by many, so much so that he has now been honoured with a posthumous award - Adgully’s Editor Choice Popular Actor (Male) In Web-Originals (Hindi/Regionals).
Shortly after the awards were announced, wishes from his fans and followers flooded the social media. In no time, #SidharthShukla started trending on Twitter, as it did earlier when he was alive. Well, Sidharth’s fan-following - SidHearts - proves he definitely deserved to win that award!
A fanpage penned a heartfelt note for the late actor and congratulated him on his big win, “His respect and dedication towards his job are simply commendable.He puts his heart and soul into it.The fame, the acclamation and the love, he has earned it all…CONGRATS SIDHARTH SHUKLA."
Another fan wrote, “CONGRATS SIDHARTH SHUKLA for your first OTT Award #BrokenButBeautiful3 will always remain special for me bcoz this is your first OTT and became last OTT Till today our king is ruling the twitter trendlist! Check at No 2 he is trending.”
For the unversed, Sidharth gave over 15 years of his life to the industry, and his journey has surely been a memorable one. He found unprecedented success as he won Bigg Boss 13. He breathed his last in the wee hours of September 2, reportedly in his lady love Shehnaaz Gill's lap. The two met on BB13 and were reportedly planning to get married in December this year. Shehnaaz has since kept away from media glare.
