Last year, Balika Vadhu actor Sidharth Shukla passed away. His untimely death caused a huge stir. Now, his family issued a statement for the late actor, urging everyone to consult with them before announcing any projects using Shukla’s name. Sidharth Shukla’s close friend and actor Shehnaaz Gill shared the statement on Tuesday. “We, as a family, come with a request, which we hope everyone will respect. Sidharth has moved on and no longer can he make decisions for himself, but he’s still an integral part of our lives and our memories and we are there to protect his wishes. We request everyone who wants to use Sidharth’s name and/or face in any project, please reach out to us. Please take a moment to ask us,” read the statement.
“We knew Sidharth’s choices, we knew what he would have wanted and our decisions for him would be keeping all this in mind. And if there were projects that he wasn’t happy with, we are sure he wouldn’t want them released. Anything that did not release when he was with us, did not have his consent or intent for release,” continued the statement.
“So please let’s keep his wishes in mind and let’s remember him with love, with respect, with fond memories, the ones he left us with,” the statement concluded.
Meanwhile, Shehnaaz Gill will pay tribute to Sidharth Shukla on Bigg Boss 15 finale episode. In the latest promo released of the reality show, the makers have revealed that Shehnaaz will grace the finale and will be paying tribute to Sidharth Shukla. Sidharth and Shehnaaz, fondly known as SidNaaz, were one of the most popular contestants on Bigg Boss 13. Sidharth succeeded in the 13th edition of Bigg Boss as the winner.
