Paras Chhabra shared a video on Instagram from the virtual prayer meeting where sister Shivani of Brahma Kumaris talks about Sidharth’s mother, Rita Shukla, and the strength she showed after his death. She says, “When I spoke to Rita aunty on September 2, she just said ‘Om Shanti’. There was so much strength in that ‘Om Shanti’. I kept thinking where did she get this strength from. When I asked her how she is doing, she told me ‘I just have one wish from the Almighty, he should stay happy wherever he is.’” The prayer meet was conducted virtually by the sisters of Brahma Kumaris and fans and friends of the late actor were requested to join it.

Sharing this video, Paras Chhabra wrote, “Rita aunty more power to you aur Ye sunne ke baad i got some power Thank you for this beautiful satsang #RIPsidharthshukla (sic).”
