Late actor Sidharth Shukla was among one of the most loved celebrities in today's times. Thus, his demise comes as a major shock to his fans. The actor has, time and again, proven that he is different from the others and his projects, even if limited, are proof that he wasn't among 'jack of all, master of none.'

The actor made quite an impact with his role in Balika Vadhu. He rose to fame with the TV serial that bagged him the role of the second lead Angad Bedi in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. Even if the Karan Johar produced film was all about Varun and Alia's characters Humpty and Vaidehi, Sidharth as Angad also managed to leave quite a mark on people. The role, once again, was just his Bollywood debut.

Sidharth got the opportunity to show his real side on the reality show Bigg Boss, and he immediately took it when he got an offer to be part of season 13 and made the show his own. He was always the person who took a stand in the house, which people loved immensely, to the extent that they made him the winner of the show.

Ever since, Sidharth became a household name that has been constantly associated with Bigg Boss, almost as much as Arjun Kapoor is associated with Koffee With Karan. Sidharth appeared on Bigg Boss 14 as a senior and later, even hosted an episode of the show. More recently, the actor appeared on Bigg Boss OTT with his Bigg Boss 13 co-contestant and friend Shehnaaz Gill.

Of course, Sidharth and Shehnaaz's chemistry has been loved by all fans of the show. It was evident when their music video Bhula Dunga by Darshan Raval was trending for three months straight.

Sidharth also made his web series debut with AltBalaji's Broken But Beautiful 3 in 2021. The actor played the role of Agasthya Rao in the popular web show. The role was tagged as 'Kabir Singh of the web' and with that, Broken But Beautiful 3 became just as successful as the film Kabir Singh.

Thus, it will not be wrong to say that Sidharth gave it all in his film and web series debut, with Karan Johar and Ekta Kapoor respectively. In turn, both the projects ended up becoming massive hits among the audience. The audience adored Broken But Beautiful 3 especially because of Agasthya Rao who was beautifully portrayed by Sidharth Shukla.
