Instead of bringing Sidharth’s mortal remains home, the late actor’s family and relatives have arrived directly at Oshiwara crematorium to carry out his last rites.
The viscera samples of the 40-year-old TV and movie actor’s have been sent for a chemical analysis. “A histopathology will be done and only after that the cause of death will be clear,” said the sources.
Sidharth Shukla was brought to Mumbai’s Cooper Hospital around 10:30 am on Thursday by his family. He was brought dead, said the hospital.
According to his friends, Sidharth Shukla had complained of uneasiness on the previous night. He took something to eat and drink and went back to bed. When he did not wake up in the morning, the family doctor was called; the doctor advised the family to take him to hospital immediately.
The actor’s family issued a statement through his public relations team requesting the media to “give his family and loved ones space and let them grieve”.
“We are all in pain. We are as shocked as you are. And all of us knew Sidharth was a private person, so please respect his privacy, his family’s privacy. And please pray for his soul to rest in peace,” it said.
