Sidharth Shukla’s family issued a statement requesting permission to distribute any unpublished films or to use the late actor’s name in their ventures. According to ETimes, the comment was made because Bigg Boss 15 participant Vishal Kotian wanted to release a song against his family’s wishes. Yes, you read that correctly. According to the article, Sidharth Shukla shot a song a few years back, just after Bigg Boss 13. However, as Vishal Kotian stated in an earlier interview, the song was completed.
Talking about the statement, it said, “We, as a family, come with a request, which we hope everyone will respect. Sidharth has moved on and no longer can he make decisions for himself, but he’s still an integral part of our lives and our memories and we are there to protect his wishes. We request everyone who wants to use Sidharth’s name and/or face in any project, please reach out to us. Please take a moment to ask us. We knew Sidharth’s choices, we knew what he would have wanted and our decisions for him would be keeping all this in mind. And if there are projects that he wasn’t happy with, we are sure he wouldn’t want them released. Anything that did not release when he was with us, did not have his consent or intent for release. So please let’s keep his wishes in mind and let’s remember him with love, with respect, with fond memories, the ones he left us with…. From, The Shukla Family.” (sic).
After suffering a heart attack, Sidharth Shukla died on September 2nd. His death came as a shock to everyone. Meanwhile, Shehnaaz Gill is expected to pay tribute to Sidharth on Bigg Boss 15’s big finale.
