From telly world to big Bollywood screens, Sidharth Shukla had made his presence felt with his acting talent and charming looks. He was the first Asian model to win Best Model Of The World in Turkey in the year 2005. This was a stepping stone for him. He then auditioned for a tv commercial and bagged his first-ever advertisement.
Though it wasn’t an easy journey for him, he kept on trying till he made it to the top. He debuted in the telly world with Babul Ka Aangann Chootey Na and then went on to do Jaane Pehchaane Se Ye Ajnabbi, after which he started getting a lot of offers. This was when he starred in Balika Vadhu and turned into a household name. This show got him a lot of fan following. Let me tell you, this was just the beginning for him.
He even participated in the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa in the year 2013, though he didn’t win the show, he won hearts for sure. His next aim was to make a name for himself on the big screen. And 2014, turned out to be the year he got to live that dream. As per sources, he signed a 3 film deal with Dharma productions and his first film was Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania.
The same year he even hosted a crime show Savdhaan India. Then followed the time of reality shows. He participated in Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi 7 and emerged as the winner. This unstoppable man went on to host a show India’s Got Talent along with Bharti Singh.
After having stayed away from the limelight for a while, he made an amazing comeback with the controversial reality show Bigg Boss. His performance in the show was appreciated and he was loved by millions. This reality show just skyrocketed his fame. No doubt he won the season.
Other than just winning the show, his chemistry with Shehnaaz Gill was much talked about. #Sidnaaz was a popular trend that went viral each time they were seen together. They both appeared in two music videos together and as expected it garnered a lot of love. ‘Bhula Dunga’ by Darshan Raval and ‘Shona Shona’ sung by Tony Kakkar became quite famous mainly because of the duo.
Well, he had reentered the Bigg Boss 14 house the next year as the ‘Toofani Seniors’ along with Gauahar Khan and Hina Khan. And each time he was just loved and appreciated.
This man who had millions of followers was also a fitness icon and inspiration and hence this news of the actor has made the entire nation upset.
It is shocking and saddening that a young star who still had a long way to go left us all of a sudden. May his soul rest in peace.
