He said, "I can't understand how this happened. I considered him to be my son. During Balika Vadhu, Sidharth and Pratyusha had become close friends. He used to come home as well."
Sidharth used to visit Pratyusha's parents often but had stopped after people started linking the two.

He often used to chat with me through messages on WhatsApp."
Shankar further revealed that Sidharth Shukla used to keep asking about their well-being. He added, "During this lockdown, he used constantly message me. I got his last message a couple of months ago. He used to ask in the message Uncle, aunty do you need help?' 'Are you guys fine?' 'Can I help in any way?' He had forcibly sent Rs 20,000."
While Pratyusha Banerjee began her acting career with Balika Vadhu, Sidharth Shukla made his TV debut with Babul Ka Aangann Chootey Na. However, just like Pratyusha, Sidharth also gained popularity after appearing on Balika Vadhu. Sidharth played Shivraj Shekhar, while Pratyusha was seen as Anandi on the show.
