While he was still pretty popular, Bigg Boss 13 proved to be super-beneficial for Sidharth Shukla. He ended up winning the show and fans got to see a different side of him. But did you know he was not keen to be a part of the show? That’s right.
In an interview to TOI, he said, “I wasn’t keen on it. I remember that one day I was just sitting by myself and thinking, ‘What is it that scares you about entering the house?’ I asked myself, ‘Is there something that you are ashamed of? Is there a side to you that you don’t want the world to see?’ And my answers were ‘No’ to all these thoughts in my head.” He added that it was at that time when he told himself that he was very comfortable with himself and there was no problem in doing the show. He told himself to have a good time and come back.
He added that the show was quite different from the characters he played in shows like Balika Vadhu and Dil Se Dil Tak. He said that the drawback was that those characters were so good and larger than life and people saw him like that, but he knew he was not like them. He was a different person altogether. He also knew that for people to see him the way he was would be a bit of a jolt, given the image that they had of him. But he was comfortable with himself.
“None of us is trying to be perfect either or even if we are trying to be, we are not. It’s about dealing with your imperfections perfectly and I try and do that every day. So yes, I’m absolutely fine with the world knowing the real me,” the actor stated.
The actor was also asked about his relationship status. He was asked about his participation in Nach Baliye. He replied, "No. Isn't Nach Baliye only for couples?" When probed further if he is seeing someone, the actor said, "I think I just answered that."
On the work front, Sidharth wrapped up the shoot of Broken But Beautiful 3 some time back.
