Television actor Sidharth Shukla’s sudden dying on September 2 left his household, mates and mates quite shattered. His Bigg Boss 13 co-contestants Asim Riaz and Paras Chhabra had been rattled by his demise as nicely. The two, who had been at loggerheads throughout their Bigg Boss stint, have now mended bridges and are mates once more.
Speaking to Times Of India, Paras stated, “When I heard the news of Sidharth’s demise, I was already anxious and depressed since morning. In fact, I had posted a picture with my mother at 6 am that morning. By 12, I started getting calls about what had happened with Sidharth and I began having a lot of anxiety. What had happened was shocking. I immediately decided to go to Sidharth’s house, where I met Asim for the first time after coming out of the Bigg Boss house last year.”
Paras added that he and Asim had an emotional reunion, and got here to the conclusion that the previous animosity must be buried. Believing that Sidharth had someway managed to reunite them, Paras stated, “The moment Asim and I saw each other, we couldn’t control our emotions and hugged each other. Asim in fact said ki milna toh tha but aise nahi milna tha humein. (If we had to meet, it shouldn’t have been like this) It is at that very moment that we decided that we shouldn’t be keeping any animosity against each other and should be back to being friends. We also vowed to be in touch and to meet each other often.”
He added, “We both realized that no issue is so big in life that it cannot be resolved. Both of us took the first step towards each other at Sidharth’s place. It was as if Sidharth reunited us from up there. We have learnt a big lesson from his loss and the lesson is that life is really short to keep grudges with one another and not talk to each other. Asim and I have spent a good time inside the Bigg Boss house together and both of us were close to Sidharth.”
Sidharth died attributable to a suspected coronary heart assault on September 2.
