Sidharth Shukla's mother saw him at 7 am, he was lying there but she thought he must be asleep: Rahul Mahajan


Sidharth Shukla left a void in the hearts of all his fans, family members and friends as he passed away on Thursday morning. The actor's last rites were performed this noon at Oshiwara crematorium. Soon after, Rahul Mahajna, who was also present at the funeral, gave an update on Sidharth Shukla's mother Rita Shukla and how she told him the chronology of events on Wednesday night. 

He told a leading news channel in Hindi, "His mother is quite a spiritual person. She told me... And this might not be in line with what the police has said, but it's what I remember. He came back around 10:30-11 pm, after having had food outside. Normally he eats at home. He then went to bed, she said, and woke up around 3:30 am, complaining of discomfort. He asked for a glass of water, but didn't wake up."

He continued, "His mother saw him at 7 am, he was lying there. But she thought he must be asleep. After some time, she felt that it was a bit unnatural the way he was sleeping, so she called a doctor, and the doctor took him to the hospital in an ambulance."

According to PeepingMoon sources, Sidharth was found unresponsive in his bedroom by his mother and reported girlfriend, actress Shehnaaz Gill. Soon after, he was rushed to Cooper Hospital and declared dead.
