After listening to the news and looking at the atmosphere in their house, meeting Shehnaaz and aunty (Sidharth’s mother), when I came home, I read messages such as ‘Tum bhi mar jao’. This was the first time in my life I was so affected by such messages. I thought to myself – how unpredictable life is, everything feels so strange. I don’t know what happened but I had a temperature (103 degrees) yesterday and I had to be hospitalised. Take care of yourself and pray that I, too, get well soon.”
Meanwhile, Sidharth’s family released a statement wherein they expressed gratitude to those who have been a part of the actor’s journey. They requested everyone to respect the family’s privacy. The note also extended a thank you to the Mumbai police.
