Bigg Boss 13 winner Sidharth Shukla celebrated his 40th birthday on December 12. However, this birthday was a tough one for him. On that day, a video of Sidharth Shukla had gone viral which showed the birthday boy in a bad light. In the video we saw, Sidharth having an argument with a man, who is claiming that the actor is drunk and has beaten a poor guy. We also saw the Dil Se Dil Tak actor giving clarification for his behaviour in the video, where he is stating what exactly happened. Now, in an interview with ETimes, Sidharth Shukla spoke about the viral video and revealed the truth behind it.
He said, "Whatever happened is all out there; I think there have been a couple of video clips of the incident that people have seen. I just have one thing to say that with the online space being so vast, some of these platforms are really starved for news. Somebody said that I was drunk and that was the headline put out without any verification. It’s really sad that you have gone out to help someone and they make you out to be the wrong one. Of course, major part of the media got it right. They went on to see the videos the following day and put out correct information. It’s not like a person needs validation or recognition when he happens to do something good or he helps someone, but when it’s turned around and the person is accused of something, it leaves a bitter feeling in the heart. But I guess that’s life, so it’s okay. "
Sidharth Shukla shared that this incident did not spoil his birthday as his fans made it the best birthday. He said, "The number of cakes, gifts, wishes and blessings that I have got from people was amazing. Since childhood, one is made to feel special on one’s birthday, but this was something else. There were countdowns online going on a month prior to my birthday. Then the best part was that many celebrated the day with people in old age homes, at orphanages, some fed the hungry, some planted trees... it was all so beautiful."
