Late Sidharth Shukla saying goodbye with a smile in Broken But Beautiful 3 BTS video leaves fans in tears; watch
Fans of late actor Sidharth Shukla were brought to tears when they saw behind-the-scenes footage of him from Broken But Beautiful 3. Sarita Tanwar, the clip’s creator, posted it on her Instagram page and dedicated it to all “Sidhearts,” as Sidharth’s followers are known. Sidharth died of a sudden heart attack on September 2. His last show was Broken But Beautiful 3, which debuted on ALTBalaji in May. He played the part of Agastya Rao, a writer-director.
Posting the video, Sarita wrote, “When an actor passes, everyone talks about the loss of friends and family. No one talks about the loss that the fans experience. Their grief isn’t acknowledged. Almost every actor has an army of fans but Sidhearts are something else. We experienced that love first hand during the making of our show, Broken But Beautiful 3.”
“The Sidhearts’ love and adoration of SS is (I won’t say ‘was’ because that love will never be a thing of the past) something special. They celebrated everything about him. They inundated us with requests for BTS; they formed the #AgMi; they followed all the actors, directors and producers of the show for any tidbit of information to promote the show. They resolved to get record subscriptions to the platform for the show, and made it happen. They made BBB3 one of the most watched shows of the year. That’s pure unadulterated love, the kind that isn’t paid promotion,” she added.

Sarita said that the team of Broken But Beautiful 3 was devastated and ‘felt the pain of Sidhearts’. “If it were possible, the team of BBB3 would like to give his fans a collective hug. And since they had been asking here is a BTS clip of the climax scene. It’s where #Agmi says goodbye to Rumi. Sidharth decided to lighten the mood and planned to do this. I was on the monitor and filmed this. In different circumstances, this would have remained in my phone forever… Here he says ‘Bye’ with a smile. And that’s how I always want to remember him,” she wrote.
Sidharth rose to fame with Balika Vadhu after appearing in programmes like Babul Ka Aangann Chootey Na, Love U Zindagi, and Dil Se Dil Tak. He was a contestant on Bigg Boss 13 and won the programme last year. In 2014, he made his Bollywood debut as a supporting actor in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania.
