Television actor Sidharth Shukla, best remembered as Bigg Boss 13 winner, passed away at age 40 on September 2, 2021. According to reports, he died of a heart attack in Cooper hospital, Mumbai.

The actor joined the TV industry in 2008. He first appeared on the TV show Babul Ka Aangann Chootey Na. However, Sidharth gained popularity after working on Balika Vadhu in 2012.

While still working on the show, he participated in Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa season 6 and by 2013, Sidharth Shukla joined the popular Bollywood film Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania as the second lead. The movie, produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and directed by Shashank Khaitan, starred Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles.

Sidharth worked on various reality shows after his film stint. He hosted India's Got Talent and also participated and won Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi 7 in 2016.

A year later, the actor was part of Dil Se Dil Tak with Rashami Desai and Jasmin Bhasin. After Sidharth and Rashami's fallout on the show, the actor did not take up many projects.

However, Bigg Boss 13 happened to him in 2019. The show brought Sidharth back into the limelight. Sidharth Shukla's chemistry with Shehnaaz Gill (SidNaaz) was much appreciated. Thanks to the love they got, Sidharth ended up picking the trophy at the beginning of 2020.

The actor's association with the show went on for two more seasons. He had entered the Bigg Boss 14 house as a senior, who made decisions for the inmates. Sidharth also hosted an episode of the show. More recently, Sidharth and Shehnaaz became a part of Bigg Boss OTT, hosted by Karan.

Sidharth also worked with Shehnaaz in two music videos. Soon after winning Bigg Boss 13, Sidharth and Shehnaaz appeared in Darshan Raval's video titled Bhula Dunga. The video came out around the same time when Sidharth's Bigg Boss competitor Asim Riaz and his girlfriend Himanshi Khurrana's Kalla Sohna Hai. Later in 2020, Sidharth and Shehnaaz flew to Punjab to shoot for Tony Kakkar and Neha Kakkar's Shona Shona.

Sidharth also played a lead role in AltBalaji's web series Broken But Beautiful 3. He played the role of Agasthya Rao aka Kabir Singh on the web series. The show also starred Sonia Rathee as the female lead. This was his last acting gig followed by a stint on Bigg Boss OTT where he made an appearance with Shehnaaz to test the contestants and boost their morale. He later appeared on Dance Deewane 3. Little did we know that this would be the last time we get to see him on the screen.
