Karan’s post left many confused as to if he was talking to Sidharth, or talking about him last night. He clarified and told ETimes, “Everyone just jumped on to the conclusion. In the post, I was talking about my conversation with my friends about Sidharth Shukla. I wrote last night that we were talking about how well he was doing in his career. And with that I meant, me having a conversation with my friends that I was sitting with. Every time we talk about success stories, somehow Sidharth’s name pops up.”
He added, “So people just jumped to the conclusion that I meant the conversation I was having with my friends about him and not with him. Maybe it was just another way of reading it, sometimes you want to read something that comforts you.”
The 40-year-old actor was a much-loved personality who became a household name after participating in Bigg Boss 13. Sidharth went on to win the show and later appeared in other Bigg Boss seasons as well as a guest. He was also seen in a few music videos with Shehnaaz Gill and appeared in Dance Deewane 3 just weeks ago.
Sidharth Shukla was brought dead to Cooper Hospital on Thursday morning. His cause of death is yet to be ascertained as the police are currently investigating the matter.
