New Delhi: Actor Sidharth Shukla’s untimely demise has left a huge void in the heart of his fans. The late actor passed away in September 2021 after suffering a hear attack.

The late actor’s bond with actor Shehnaaz Gill is known to all. The two became best of friends during their stint in Bigg Boss 13 and grew closer going further. And now, Shehnaaz has taken to her Instagram story to issue a statement by the late actor’s family on not releasing anything related to the actor without the family’s permission.

The statement read, “To all of Sidharth’s well wishers. 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 were 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…..”, the statement concluded.

A few days ago, Shehnaaz surprised her fans after collaborating with Internet sensation Yashraj Mukhate for a video. For the unversed, last year Yashraj took to Instagram and made an edit by using Shehnaaz’s clip from her Bigg Boss days and remixed it to make a song called ‘Twada Kutta Tommy’. The song became a raging success and made him a household name.

In the new song, The Bigg Boss alumni made an appearance towards the end of the video, singing and dancing along with Yashraj.
