The actor made headlines last year after he was arrested by the Delhi Police in connection with a tractor rally by farmers on Republic Day that spiralled into violence after protesters came to the Red Fort and attacked policemen. He was in jail for two months before being released on bail.
Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi tweeted his condolences on the actor's death. He wrote, "Deeply saddened to learn about the unfortunate demise of renowned actor and social activist, Deep Sidhu. My thoughts and prayers are with the bereaved family and fans."
