From Sidharth Shukla to Pratyusha Banerjee: ‘Balika Vadhu’ Actors Who Have Passed Away And We Will Miss Them On Screen
Balika Vadhu was an iconic show and extremely popular among Indian audiences. The show depicted child marriage in a very realistic way where the parents are forced to get their daughters married at a very young age. More than the writing and direction, the show became popular because of its extremely talented cast too. Whether it was veteran actor Surekha Sikri, adorable Pratyusha Baneerji, or our very own dashing stud Sidharth Shukla the whole cast forced the viewers to stick to their television screens.
The show became such a hit that the makers were getting a huge demand for creating a second season of the show. The second season has begun to air on the television but things are not the same as the audiences are going to miss the old iconic cast.
With the passing away of Sidharth Shukla at an age of 40 due to cardiac arrest, the television industry is in deep shock. According to the forensic department, the actor was brought dead at the Cooper Hospital. Sidharth Shukla was best known for his character in Balika Vadhu and the star had risen to fame after winning the 13th season of the popular reality show Bigg Boss.
Before the demise of Sidharth Shukla, actress Surekha Sikri too had breathed her last in July at the age of 75. The legendary actress was a three-time national award winner and was known for her brilliant acting skills and talent. “Three-time national award-winning actress, Surekha Sikri has passed away following a cardiac arrest earlier this morning at the age of 75. She had been suffering from complications arising from a second brain stroke. She was surrounded by family and her caregivers. The family asks for privacy at this time. Om Sai Ram,” the actor’s manager Vivek Sidhwani had told in a media statement.”
Actress Pratyush Baneerji had died by suicide in April 2016 where her body was found hanging from a ceiling fan at her house.
