Sidharth Shukla has been a well-known name in the industry and the actor recently got talking about the ongoing pandemic, keeping his cool, and trying to help others, among other things. He also spoke about how Bigg Boss 13 has been quite the changer in many ways, right from him being active on social media to all the love he has received.
Sidharth, in an interview with The Times of India, mentioned how the pandemic has made everyone realize how fragile life is and it is good to see some people rise beyond their call of duty and help others. He added how the pandemic has made everyone value relationships more as they cannot take them for granted. He said that this is a great leveler as it does not distinguish between caste, class, sex, or creed. About the stress that comes along, the actor says that no one can be immune to the pain, suffering, and horrific stories that we are seeing. However, he says he tries to use this constructively by trying to help in his own way and create awareness.
Sidharth won Bigg Boss 13 and he continues to have that winner aura around him, and about that, the actor feels wonderful that people still feel connected to him, and with so much happening, they still invest their time, which makes him feel blessed. While the actor does not know the reason of it, he feels his fans are in a better position to answer that. The actor feels glad that he changed his decision to be a part of the show and how he changed his mind. He revealed that he was thinking to himself as to what scares him about the house and when he questioned if he is ashamed of something or has something to hide and when his answer to these thoughts was no, he decided to go out there and have a good time and come back.
Ask him if he feels he's missed out on work post Bigg Boss due to COVID-19, he says he is happy with the work that is coming in. He says that the times that the world is going through, he sees himself from where he was before and he sees it is better and he is happy with that. He adds how he is not someone who feels 'I could have done so much more since there is no limit to that. However, he did mention how he wants to do more and do better, but he does not have anything to crib about.
Sidharth also got talking about how he kept a low profile until Bigg Boss, but after the show, he saw the love that poured in and how he was overwhelmed and that is what one works for. He says that he feels indebted and tries to communicate with his socal media family as often as he can and he loves reading what they have to say about him, which is both good and bad. He mentioned that he tried to see if he can pick up even from negative comments, or else, he lets them go.
Since Sidharth has worked in all major reality shows, including Khatron Ke Khiladi, Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa, and Bigg Boss, on being asked about Nach Baliye, he quickly highlighted how that is a show for couples. He also addressed link-up rumours to Shehnaaz Gill, and other co-stars, and said, ''When we play characters on TV shows, people get so connected to the characters that they feel this is their life even beyond the show. On reality shows, they see the camaraderie and that’s why they think there's more to it.''
Sidharth is going to be seen in Broken But Beautiful season 3, as he is gearing up for a digital debut.
