Asim and Sidharth shared a close bond in the initial days of Bigg Boss 13. However, towards the end of the show, they turned against each other as their friendship went sour. The finale of Bigg Boss 13 had both Asim and Sidharth standing beside Salman Khan. While Sidharth won the show, Asim became the first runner-up. However, after the show, the two men ended their rivalry as Sidharth congratulated Asim for being in the list of ‘most desirable men in India’.

Sidharth’s other Bigg Boss 13 co-contestants, Arti Singh and Shefali Jariwala reached the late actor’s house to be with his mother and support her in this tough time. Rahul Mahajan also reached the hospital to condole the death of the late actor.
