Actor Sidharth Shukla’s sudden demise left everyone across the country shocked. The actor passed away at the age of 40 from a heart attack on Thursday.
The late actor was very close to his mother and described her as his 'best friend' and said that he never keeps any secrets from her.
Also, she was the reason behind Sidharth entering the entertainment world.
In an interview, he said, “People know me as a man with a rough exterior. But I’ll always melt for my mom. Right from the time I was born, she’s been the most important person in my life. I was the youngest of 3 kids & too small to play with my sisters, so I was always around mom. Back when I was a toddler, I’d cry if I had to go a second without her–so even while making rotis, she’d hold me in one hand & the roller in another! As I grew older, she became my best friend.”View this post on Instagram
When the actor was heartbroken after his father’s demise, he said that his mother was the only one who kept the three siblings together.
He said, “When dad passed away 15 years ago, it felt like the umbrella over us had been taken away. But my mom was our rock–she never showed any signs of vulnerability. Despite our poor finances, she ran the house, looked after 3 kids & fulfilled all our demands! I know now that she must’ve had to sacrifice so much to give us what we wanted.”View this post on Instagram
It was Sidharth’s mother who persuaded him to model and made him enter the acting profession.
He said, “She even played a pivotal role in helping me find my passion. I used to act like the ‘cool guy’–so to ‘teach me a lesson, she sent me for a modelling contest thinking I’d be put in my place! Funnily enough, I actually won! So, even on a subconscious level, she’s been a guiding force in my life.”
