Rakhi Sawant, who was last seen in Bigg Boss 14 as a challenger, reacted to Sidharth Shukla’s untimely demise. In an interaction with ETimes TV, Rakhi mourned his death and shared her thoughts about the late actor.
“Oh my god, I am shocked. I just woke up, I cannot believe that this has happened. I am shocked. We met during ‘Bigg Boss’. Whenever he used to anything, he used to tell me. When he did ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’, he asked me if he should do it. Even before he did ‘Balika Vadhu’ he used to ask me for advice; I used to always support him. Life is so unpredictable. This is beyond shocking,” said Rakhi.
