Sidharth Shukla, one of the biggest stars of the Indian TV, has passed away in Mumbai at the age of 40. A heart attack is said to be the reason behind his death. He worked in TV shows like Balika Vadhu and Bigg Boss, and films like Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. He is survived by his mother and two sisters.
“He was brought dead to the hospital some time ago,” confirmed the officials at the Cooper Hospital in Mumbai.
Shukla began his career in showbiz as a model and made his acting debut with a lead role in the television show Babul Ka Aangann Chootey Na. He later appeared on shows such as Jaane Pehchaane Se… Ye Ajnabbi, Love U Zindagi, and a household name with Balika Vadhu.
He also participated in reality shows, including Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6, Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi 7 and Bigg Boss 13.
In 2014, Shukla made his Bollywood debut with the Karan Johar-produced Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania where he had a supporting role.
