Sidharth Shukla was a gentle giant: ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’ co-star Sahil Vaid – Eagles Vine

Sidharth Shukla might have done only one film in his career, ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’, but he was a well-established name in television and was soon carving his niche on OTT too. However, with his sudden demise due to a heart attack today, he has left a void, and friends and past co-stars are mourning his loss.

His ‘HSKD’ co-star Sahil Vaid says he is ‘simply unable to digest the fact that he is no more’. “We worked together in one of my most successful films ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’ and those scenes–be it the Sanjay National Park running scene or the ones in Chandigarh– are still fresh in my mind. I can tell you that he was a very accommodating actor,” says Sahil in a chat with ETimes.

The actor went on to add how the timing of it all is ‘weird’. “His success had just begun with ‘Bigg Boss’, this shouldn’t have happened; this is really so weird. He could have become a hero for sure, but, for me, in a way, he was a hero; it was just a matter of opportunity which he was about to get. His time was here. After ‘Bigg Boss’ people had started becoming his fan and loving him for who he was; it is really so strange that things were looking up for him and then this happened,” rues the actor.

Sahil also reveals that contrary to his image and appearances, the late actor was all heart. He adds, “His heart was completely the opposite of his personality; he looked aggressive and was projected very differently in ‘Bigg Boss’. But he wasn’t like that at all; he was sweet to everyone. I used to call him the Gentle Giant and had some fun times with him”.
