Bigg Boss OTT: Karan Johar gets emotional during a tribute to Sidharth Shukla, says ‘you shall be missed forever’
During the Sunday Ka Vaar episode of Bigg Boss OTT, Karan Johar paid tribute to late actor Sidharth Shukla. Bigg Boss 13 winner, Sidharth, died on Thursday. Karan Johar deeply moved, spoke about Sidharth’s sudden death and how he was still ‘numb’ from the news. As a montage of the late actor’s Bigg Boss 13 moments aired on the screen, Karan called Sidharth the “beloved member” of the Bigg Boss family.
“Sidharth Shukla, ek aisa chehra, ek aisa naam jo hum sabki zindagi ka ek ahem hissa ban gaya tha. Bigg Boss family ke favourite member, jo mere hi nahi balki humari industry ke anginat logon ke dost, achanak hum sab ko chhod ke chale gaye (Sidharth Shukla, a name that became an important part of our lives. The favourite member of the Bigg Boss family, and friend to me as well as countless others from our industry, suddenly left us).”
“This is something we are all still finding hard to believe. It is like I am numb, I can’t even breathe. Sid was a good son, a great friend and just an amazing guy to be around and be with. His positive vibe and that smile won so many millions of hearts,” he added.

Karan said that the love of fans is proof of how ‘popular’ and ‘lovable’ Sidharth was. “Rest in peace, Sid Shukla, you shall be missed forever,” Karan said that he and the audience will need a lot of strength to continue the show. “But if you think about it, and this is what I am sure Sid even wanted because as we all know, the show must go on,” he said.
Sidharth made his Bollywood debut in 2014 with Karan Johar’s production, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, starring Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt. Last month, Sidharth joined Karan on the Bigg Boss OTT stage. Sidharth appeared as a guest on the show, along with Shehnaaz Gill.
