Sidharth Shukla cremated; Shehnaaz Gill breaks down inconsolably

Actor Sidharth Shukla was cremated on Friday afternoon at the Oshiwara crematorium in Mumbai.

One of the lasting images of the last rites of Shukla was the late TV star’s ‘special friend’ Shehnaaz Gill breaking down inconsolably as she arrived with her brother Shehzaad to pay her last respects to the man with whom she shared incredible chemistry.

The actor’s mortal remains left Cooper Hospital around 1.20 pm in a hearse decorated with marigold flowers— and amid heavy police security and crowds of people hoping to catch a last glimpse of the actor.

Shukla’s mother Rita and his colleagues, including actors Aly Goni, Asim Riaz Paras Chhabra, Mahira Khan, Abhinav Shukla, Jay Bhanushali with wife Mahhi Vij, were among those inside the crematorium.
