Sidharth Shukla’s sudden demise shook the entire nation as well as his friends and colleagues from the industry. His co-contestants from Bigg Boss 13, Asim Riaz and Paras Chhabra too were in a state of shock and though they were at loggerheads in the show they have mended their differences and are friends again post Sidharth’s demise.
Talking to a leading daily, Paras shared about how they buried the hatchet and said, “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."
He further added, “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’. 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. 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."
