In 2019, Sidharth participated in Bigg Boss 13 and quickly became a fan favourite. He won the show but later fought allegations that the makers and host Salman Khan were biased towards him.

Talking to SpotboyE, Sidharth had said that he ‘wasn’t the one who started’ the fights but only retaliated when provoked. “If you see that someone else is initiating the fight and you still nominate me twice for eviction... I was in the danger zone,” he said, adding, “I should talk about bias. People had their support systems coming into the Bigg Boss 13 house and staying with them. I was all alone.”
