Actor Shah Rukh Khan had once called late actor Sidharth Shukla a gentleman after he danced with his on-screen daughter, actor Sana Saeed. In 2013, Shah Rukh had appeared as a guest on the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa season 6, where Sidharth Shukla was a participant.
A video from the show surfaced online in which Shah Rukh Khan teased Sidharth and interacted with Sana Saeed, who essayed the role of his daughter in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. In the video, Shah Rukh went to the stage after Sana's performance with Sidharth.
He separated Sidharth and Sana and looked at them with surprise. After hugging Sana, Shah Rukh told Sidharth, "Tum shareef ho maine note karliya hai. Tumne zada mere saamne toh badtameezi nahi ki (You are a gentleman that I have noted. You have not resorted to any insolent behaviour in front of me)."
Sidharth made a brief bow as he acknowledged the compliment. He participated in the show but was eliminated in the 11th week.+
Sidharth Shukla died on Thursday at the age of 40. He was brought to Cooper Hospital, whose dean Dr Shailesh Mohite told news agency PTI, "He was brought dead to the hospital. The cause of the death will be known after the post-mortem is conducted... it will take some time." Sidharth is survived by his mother and two sisters.
Apart from Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, he participated and also won the reality shows Bigg Boss 13 and Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi 7. He started his career as a model and also won the title of World's Best Model in 2005.
