Actor and Bigg Boss winner Sidharth Shukla took his last breathe on September 2nd, as he succumbed to a heart attack at Cooper Hospital. His last rites were conducted in the Oshiwara crematorium. Many of his co-contestants, like Rashami Desai, Asim Riaz, Paras Chhabra, Mahira Sharma, Arti Singh, Shefali Jariwali, Dalljeit Kaur had shown up. Rumoured girlfriend Shehnaaz Gill was also there, in a very inconsolable state.
Asim and Paras were always at loggerheads in Bigg Boss. It would be fair to say that they were always looking for opportunities to lock horns. However, the demise of their co-contestant seems to have brought them quite close. During an interview, Paras revealed that as soon as he got to know about the ill-fated news, he rushed to Sidharth’s place and saw Asim was there too. It was the first time they saw each other after Bigg Boss. Both hugged each other.
He also said that while they had planned to meet, this wasn’t the occasion they wanted it to be. They’ve started following each other on Instagram and also decided to keep in contact. He added, “It was as if Sidharth reunited us from up there. We have learnt a big lesson from his loss and the lesson is that life is really short to keep grudges with one another and not talk to each other.”
