Shortly after its publication, several fans began to express their condolences and even agreed to pray for his soul. Many even asked their mother and close girlfriend Shahnaz to stay strong.
The winner of Bigg Boss 13 was cremated on Friday at the Oshiwara crematorium this afternoon. His remains were taken from Cooper Hospital-Mumbai in a flower-decorated ambulance. Siddharth's mother, Rita Shukla, and sisters and alleged girlfriend Shahnaz Kaur Gill, who was accompanied by his brother Shahbaz, were present at the crematorium.
The funeral was attended by members of the television industry, friends, and family. Jay Bhanushali, Mahi Vij, Ali Goni, Asim Riaz, Rahul Mahajan, Vikas Gupta, Abhinav Shukla, Karanvir Bohra, Shefali Gariwala, and Darshan Raval, among others, have come to the crematorium to pay their last respects to Siddharth. Several other stars, including Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan, Rajkumar Rao, Manish Paul, and others, arrived at the late Siddharth's residence to pay their last respects on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Karanvir took to Instagram and shared a video and wrote: "Ciaz gadi mein aye hai, gareeb lag rahe hai!" So sad, are we here to appear 5 stars? We come to meet a mother you just lost, son. Is this what some journalists notice during such a sad moment? That is exactly what gives the press a bad name. "
Siddharth, who was a huge figure, started his career as a model. He made his acting debut with a lead role in the TV series 'Babul Ka Aangann Chootey Na' in 2008 and has never looked back since. With the TV show 'Balika Vadhu' and his Bollywood debut with 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania', Sidharth is gaining more popularity. He has skyrocketed on the racing chart since he won Bigg Boss 13 in February 2020.
