The tragic news of Sidharth Shukla’s demise rocked the industry. While many expressed heartfelt condolences, others were called out for being insensitive and vlogging Shukla’s funeral. This time around it is actor Vidyut Jammwal who shared a video on Instagram where he opened up about his friendship with Sidharth and revealed that he’s known Shukla since the past 15 years.
“He was my first gym friend and I saw him at the gym for the first time in 2004. The last time we met I told him, you are the only guy in my life about whom I know what you were wearing when we met for the first time. Usually, we know about girls. He was wearing a white t-shirt and beige trousers and shoes,” he reveals.
Speaking of the kind of friend and son Shukla was, he says, “I felt I was the best son, but Sidharth Shukla proved me wrong I want to tell aunty the last time I met him at your house, I actually got a complex, as I always thought I was the best son. But he proved me wrong. Mujhe lagta tha main apni maa ko sabse zyaada pyaar karta hoon par Usko aap ke saath dekh ke Mujhe sharam aagayi..

“His mother is so strong. He has been raised by three strong women. I always say this when you are raised by a woman you are going to be a different man. ‘Ek asli mard ko auratein hee raise kar sakti hain’,” says Jammwal.
“I always say this for him ‘Mard toh Aise he hote hain’. He would respect everyone kids, women, watchman everyone,” he adds.
