Sidharth Shukla's untimely demise came as a shock to many. The actor became a big name post his Bigg Boss win and now, the show has paid their respect to the much-loved personality.
Bigg Boss OTT, which currently streams on Voot, began their latest episode by remembering the actor. They added a white slate at the beginning of the show, in which they paid a tribute to the actor.
"In loving memory of Sidharth Shukla. A born winner… You will always be missed," it read. His year of birth and death (1980-2021) was also mentioned in the slate.
See it here:
The actor was 40-year-old. He died after a heart attack. According to reports, the actor died after taking some medicines on the night of September 1.
Co-incidentally, Bigg Boss OTT was among one of Sidharth's last public appearances. The actor had come on the show with his Bigg Boss 13 co-contestant Shehnaaz Gill. Together, they tested the contestants through some tasks and also motivated them to perform better on the show. It was the week when Ridhima Pandit, Karan Nath and Zeeshan Khan were still a part of the house.
