In a candid chat with his brother Umar Riaz, he revealed how Sidharth Shukla’s untimely demise affected Asim. Umar has entered the Bigg Boss 15 house.
Speaking about Sidharth Shukla’s demise, Umar said, “We we’re all shocked. I remember Asim was so shocked that he cried and couldn’t speak and was very low. He rushed to the hospital hence in the morning. Though there was beef between them, they shared a bond of friendship. Unfortunately, they couldn’t meet after BB due to work commitments. In the morning, he saw Sidharth’s clip and the same day he heard of his demise, maybe Sidharth wanted to say goodbye to him. It was very emotional for Asim and family and of course, the fans.”
Asim had shared many emotional post after Siddharth’s demise and had remembered the actor for all the courage he showcased.
On the work front, Asim is currently working on his music videos while Umar has entered the BB house alongside many contestants including Karan Kundrra, Jay Bhanushali, Shamita Shetty, Donal Bisht.
