Popular actor, late Sidharth Shukla had won hearts with his roles in movies and series like Humpy Sharma Ki Dulhania, Balika Vadhu and many more. The handsome hunk had become a household name after his stint in the reality show, Bigg Boss 13. However, apart from his war of words with then-co-contestant, Asim Riaz, one more highlight of the show was his romance with singer, Shehnaaz Gill and television actress, Rashami Desai.
Rashami and Siddharth had known each other even before Bigg Boss 13, and reportedly, they were even dating each other in the past. The alleged couple had featured in Colours Tv’s daily soap, Dil Se Dil Tak and their magical on-screen chemistry was hailed by many. However, the duo had never acknowledged or denied the rumours about their romantic affair. On September 2, 2021, Sidharth Shukla had faced a major heart attack and had left for his heavenly abode at the young age of 40. Now, the actress broke down in an interview while addressing her special relationship with Sidharth Shukla.
In a recent interaction with BBC Hindi, Rashami Desai opened up about her rumoured ex-boyfriend, Sidharth Shukla and talked about their close bond. She shared that whenever she used to fight with Sidharth, she told him that he had a muscular body but the mind of a 10-year-old kid. In her words:
“Tab tak maine apne aapko bohot strong bana chuki thi or maybe heartless bana chuki thi, I will be very honest kyuki meri neeji zindagi mein bhi bohot kuch chal raha tha aur Sidharth ke saath jab maine show kiya tha, usne mujhe bohot kareeb se jaana hai aur main usse kareeb se jaanti thi toh hame ek dusre ko kaafi sari cheezein pata thi. Hamari ladai alag wajah se hoti thi. Maine usse hamesha ek baat bolti thi ki badi body ek das saal ka baccha hai aur wo aisa hi tha aur apni terms and condition pe wo jeeya hai.”
Further, in the conversation, Rashmi mentioned that even after the sweet and sour journey of Bigg Boss 13, they had met each other outside the BB house. However, they were not in constant touch. She also said that people had showered their love and hate equally on them because people were not aware of her and Sidharth’s personal journey. Rashmi can be quoted as saying:
“Aisa nahi tha ki BB13 ke baad bhi hamari baat nahi hui thi, hamari baat hui thi like on and off. But jab main dekhti thi ki he was doing good and all toh acha lagta tha, we were connected. Work wise bhi uska acha tha and mera alag tarikese chal raha tha, toh ek daariye hum apne liye set kar chuke mature level pe. Logon ne bohot pyaar diya and utna hi hate bhi kiya hai kyuki jo hamari beech ki journey thi wo hamare tak hi seemit thi jo hamne baat hi nahi ki aur mujhe bhi nahi chahiye tha aur usse bhi nahi tha.”
For those who don’t know, earlier, Rashmi was married to her Uttaran co-star, Nandish Singh Sandhu, and the couple had parted after four years of marriage in 2016. After a few years, Rashami had found love again when she had met businessman, Arhaan Khan, but this time around as well, things did not go well, and she had broken up with him.
