Hindi Television star Sidharth Shukla’s unprecedented demise sent shock waves across the entire nation. Fans continue to mourn the actor’s death who suffered a critical heart attack on September 2, 2021. He was just 40-years-old.
Recently, Shukla’s close friend and colleague Vidyut Jammwal took to his Instagram handle and shared his memories with the actor. The two started their modelling careers together and went on to be good buddies.
Remembering the late actor, Vidyut said that Sidharth was always respectful towards women and never spoke about them in his life. In a Instagram video shared on Wednesday, Vidyut said, “Sidharth Shukla is the only man I know who never took a woman's name. When someone asked him if he had a scene with any woman, he would ignore that and not answer. I have never heard him mention a woman's name. This is a great quality of a man.”
For the unversed, Sidharth Shukla was in a relationship with his fellow Bigg Boss 13 contestant Shehnaaz Gill. The actor’s demise left and unfilling void amongst his loved ones and his fans.
Furthermore, Vidyut also spoke about the special bond he had shared with Sidharth and revealed, “Our friendship dates back to 20 years. Sidharth Shukla has been my best friend because I never had that kind of friendship with anyone else. He was my first gym partner in Mumbai.”
He continued, “I remember that in 2004, I had entered the gym and saw this very tall, good-looking guy. My cousin introduced me to him and since then, we became gym partners and eventually, good friends. So when I last met Sidharth, I told him, 'You are the only guy in my life whose clothes I remember when I first met'. I had some of my best training sessions with him. He just had one mantra — 'To be the man, you have to beat the man'.”
Recalling the last meeting with his dear friend and Bigg Boss 13 winner, the Khuda Haafiz actor said, “On July 15, I got a call from him asking to meet. When he reached, he said that there was a lot of media outside. We talked about the pap culture and how actors call up photographers to click them on various locations. However, Sidharth Shukla never once called them. Media loved him a lot. He respected the paps. He was very gracious towards them,” Vidyut had said.
Making an appearance in various soaps, films and reality shows, Sidharth truly had become an inspiration for many. He had won Bigg Boss 13 by a huge and historic margin.
