It’s been a year that the charismatic presence of Siddharth Shukla is no more found. Although his endeavours and followers have never stopped feeling his presence still his departure has created a void that never can be filled with. Today on Shukla’s 1st Death Anniversary Shebaaz Badesha, the brother of Shehnaaz Gill, the rumoured girlfriend of Sidharth Shukla is found opening up this mournful demise and how they had cope up with this anguish.
Sehbaaz is found expressing immense affection and heartfelt love as he says, ”He is in my heart. I know it. I don’t have to tell anyone. I don’t need a special occasion to remember anyone. We love him and we will continue to love him,’ he said. He spoke about what they tell each other, and themselves in trying to process the loss. ‘Dekho agar koi aadmi gaya hai na yahan se, kehte hain ache logo ki zarurat bhagwan ko hoti hai. Ache logo ki zarurat padi hai bhagwan ko, tabhi gaya hai. (They say that God needs good people. He must need people, that is why he is gone.)”
Earlier, Shehbaz was found also talking about Sidharth as his huge inspiration and to even this very time he thinks of the late actor every time before starting something new.
‘Apni life achi karni hai toh we have to go forward. (We have to move on to make something of our life) Agar hum forward jayenge toh voh bhi humare saath forward jayega, agar hum khatam ho jayenge toh voh bhi khatam ho jayega (If we move towards a brighter future, he moves with us but if we get stuck, so does he.)’
On the other hand, Shehnaaz Gill who was found totally devastated after Sidhharth’s demise, in an interview with the publication, how she has turned herself into a strong woman coping up with this pain. She said, ‘I feel very strong today. Also, I think whatever happened has prepared me for everything. I have a belief that whatever will happen will be for the good for now.’
Reportedly, on the eve of Shukla’s first death anniversary, his family attended a prayer meet with Brahma Kumaris.
