Sidharth Shukla's sudden passing away came as a shocker to the entire entertainment industry. He gained immense popularity right before his demise due to Bigg Boss 13. The actor won the hearts of the audience with his persona and often made headlines over his fights with Asim Riaz and love angle with Shehnaaz Gill. While his fans are yet to come to terms with his demise, Asim in his new interview claimed that he was aware of Sidharth's demise much before the news broke out.
In an interview with Siddharth Kannan, Asim revealed that Sidharth came in his dreams and he saw his demise before it happened. The model chose to not share it publicly back then. He said in the interview, "He (Sidharth) came in my dream bro, I swear. I knew it before (it happened). I had a call from one of my cousins, Ruhaan called me up, usne mujhe bola bhai news on karna (He asked me to switch on the news), he didn’t tell me because he knows how emotional and how sensitive I am."
Asim was among the first to reach the hospital after the news of Sidharth's demise broke out on September 2, 2021. The Bigg Boss 13 winner suffered a heart attack on the night of September 1, 2021. He was with his rumoured girlfriend Shehnaaz Gill at his residence. Asim was with the Shukla family throughout the rituals.
While Asim and Sidharth shared a bitter-sweet relationship on Bigg Boss 13, they went on to mend their relationship post the show. After Sidharth's demise, Asim shared pictures with him from the show and wrote, "I m gonna meet you in heaven brother… R I P sidharthshukla (sic)."
