Television actor Sidharth Shukla’s death came in as a shock to the whole nation. Moreover, it was a huge loss for the television industry too. The late actor Sidharth’s colleague and TV actor Sharad Malhotra opined on his death.
TV actor Sharad Malhotra on Sidharth Shukla’s demise:
Sharad says, “Yesterday I was at work, and this message came as news in one of my friend’s groups. It did not sink in initially. I couldn’t process and started ringing people to clarify thinking this to be a rumour, some lame joke or fake news… It left most of us numb and shocked. I didn’t know him personally but obviously; We are members of the same fraternity.”
He adds, “I bumped into him a couple of times. He came across as a warm and smiling guy. I think all I’ll say right now is that life is very unpredictable, live in the moment, love every moment because you don’t know when is your last moment and till how long we are here or we are supposed to be here on earth. We don’t know what happens after death. Yes, we have goals and things to achieve. I think the main goal of life should not just be earning money, getting fame etc.”
Sharad further says, “I think it’s most important that we celebrate every moment of our life. It could be work, it could be personal. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, just be in the moment, cherish that moment. Remember every second is important with your loved ones. Let’s not hold grudges. I think the concept of long-term planning seems rather meaningless at times.”
Sharad concludes, “When do we get to know about such shocking news you subconsciously ask yourself why do we need long term planning? It’s good to plan for your future and a couple of years in advance, but the most important thing is that you live your today well. This is the moment we need to live, enjoy and be grateful for. Get up every morning. Please show gratitude towards everything you have, your parents, family, house, pets, friends, car… We just hope and pray that there’s love around us, peace and harmony. Om Shanti. Please take care of yourselves”
