Kushal Tandon quits social media; apologises to late actor Sidharth Shukla
Kushal Tandon has quit social media. He explained why, in an Instagram post on Friday morning. He wrote, “Off this so-called social media… Until then stay human in social and in your family.” Kushal Tandon also expressed regret to the late actor Sidharth Shukla in an interview. On Friday, Sidharth was cremated at Mumbai’s Oshiwara crematorium. The actor died at the young age of 40. He suffered a cardiac arrest. Sidharth Shukla passed away on September 2.
According to a Zoom TV report, he added, “Hang your head in shame. Disgusted with everything that is going on. If u really wanna pay respect say a lil prayer for the departed soul, rather than making this an opportunity to be clicked! #Youknowwhoyouare #Sad I am sorry sid! rest in peach super star.” Kushal Tandon uploaded a video with the Bigg Boss 13 winner after his death, writing, “And what we leave behind? Love, warmth, passion, conduct and deep compassion for each other. Why is it difficult to follow when we are alive?

Life is unpredictable, love more, judge less , love and remember people more often when they are around you not when they are gone ….gone to soon my brother , see you on the other side , give my love to sushant , see you on the other side , chill with angels happiness and more peace afterlife.”
A few other actors are similarly disturbed by the circumstances that have unfolded since Sidharth Shukla’s sudden death. Puja Banerjee also declared her withdrawal from social media in order to “avoid seeing stupid photos and videos of someone’s death and their close ones being troubled by media.” Suyyash Rai and Rahul Vaidya have both expressed their disappointment with the situation.
Taking to Twitter, Gauahar wrote late Thursday, “Any one who has met a grieving family, should not give out details. Really sad to see people giving interviews about family members and sharing details. Stop! Please stop! If you have gone to pay your respect don’t come out and become a khabri (informer) and add to the low standard of journalism.”
