A cardiac arrest took his soul away on 2nd September this year at the age of 40 and his loyal fan base is still carrying on its love towards the beloved TV star and Big Boss 13 winner Sidharth Shukla. This initiated a trend called ‘Stop Using Sidharth Shukla’ on Twitter by his loyal fan base. Affected by his sudden demise, actress Shehnaaz Gill took a sabbatical from social media and after resuming her work, she released her musical debut to pay tribute to her best friend Sidharth Shukla through her song ‘Tu Yaheen Hai’. On that, a trend ‘Stop Using Sidharth Shukla’ is trending on social media, to which another actor Aly Goni has reacted to the fans to extend his support to the actor friend Shehnaaz Gill.
Aly had reacted to a tweet that criticised music artists including Amit Tandon and Jaan Kumar Sanu for paying tributes to the late actor. According to the tweet, “Here we are still mourning this unfortunate event n people who claim to be his close friends are selling emotions on the name of a Tribute. Asking us to make REELS on someone’s death, counting views n likes! How low will they stoop? Stop the mockery! STOP USING SIDHARTH SHUKLA.” On which Aly Goni responded, “Stop it guys seriously.”
Then Aly shared another tweet while clarifying his stand and defending Shehnaaz. He tweeted, “I think there is misunderstanding in my last tweet.. first of all Shehnaz ka poora Haq banta hai to tribute and I loved that song (Shehnaaz has all the right to pay tribute to Sidharth).. secondly that tweet was for those people who drag Sid in the name of cover songs reels and all. Jo uss tweet mein mention tha (which was mentioned in the tweet).. #peaceout”
Alongside, Amit Tandon, who also was getting trolled for using Sidharth and Shehnaaz’s names to announce his ‘Dil Ko Karaar Aaya’ song responded through Instagram stories, saying that it’s not a tribute to the late actor. Also, he said, “Just to make this clear to the trollers out there this isn’t a tribute and I tagged sid and shenaz fans fully knowing that she wasn’t a part of the song thinking it may bring a smile on their faces. This was recorded before sids untimely demise and is a song I like that was sung amazingly by @yasserdesai Bas baaki jisko hateful hona hai ho mjhe ghanta farak padhta hai! #tandontalks #sayitlikeitis”
However, Tu Yaheen Hai song depicts Shehnaaz is living an alone life in remembrance of his friend. The video largely consists of footages from BB13 life and appearance on other TV appearances.
