BIGG BOSS 13

Be it strategizing tasks or being aggressive, Sid has been one of the toughest contestants in the house and that’s exactly why his fans love him so much. Sid started off his BB journey with trying to be cordial with his alleged ex-girlfriend Rashami Desai who happened to be on the show as well. But things took an ugly turn when the actor had massive fallout with her. But Sid found the calm to his storm in co-contestant Asim Riaz who became his brother from another mother on the show. Unfortunately, his journey took a U-turn when he got into a massive fight with his Asim. Sid grabbed headlines for his split with Asim and constant violent and aggressive fights with him. His relationship from being friends to enemies with Asim got him several fans that stood by him like a pillar of strength each time he was targeted inside the house. Sidharth also found love inside the house. What kind of love, even we don’t know. But he found his strength and weakness both in Shehnaaz Gill, who happens to be his biggest cheerleader. His sweet chemistry with Shehnaaz and even dramatic fights melted the heart of several fans on the show. But one negative comment and Sid had to face a severe backlash. Yes, we are talking about his ‘aisi ladki’ comment on Rahsami which boiled her blood and got Sid severe criticism. But all is well that ends well. Rashami and Sid now share a cordial relationship inside the house and enjoy the love of both their fans. Sidharth became the talk of the town for his love angle with Shehnaaz and their cute friendship. He is always seen standing up for his friends and being overprotective for them.
