In 2019, Sidharth participated in and won Bigg Boss 13, which was hosted by Salman. Sidharth had to fight off allegations that he was favoured by Salman and the makers of the show.

Speaking with SpotboyE last year, Sidharth had said, “I really don’t think so. If you see, I was nominated twice as punishment. Even if you see the fights, I wasn’t the one who started it. Only when I was nudged or provoked, did I retaliate. Show me one video of mine in which I initiated a fight. Never!” he said, adding that he was nominated for eviction despite not being the aggressor.
