With 2021 coming to an end, we have lost many people due to the pandemic or other various reasons. These highly loved celebrities have not been able to make it through the end of the year of 2021 and here’s a list of our beloved ones who’re resting in peace aboard above.
Siddharth Shukla was an Indian television model and actor who was highly appreciated and loved for his appearance and his romantic relationship with co-housemate, Shehnaaz Gill, in Bigg Boss 13.
With his aggressive side, we could see a lovable Siddharth Shukla on the show and he won, fair and square, the title of Bigg Boss 13. With his romantic relationship with Shehnaaz Gill, the internet seemed to go gala over the two and wanted to see more of them.
On September 2, 2021, we found Siddharth Shukla unconscious in his apartment with Shehnaaz Gill by his side and it was ruled to be a heart attack at the age of 40.
He was popular for his various television roles and also took part in Bigg Boss twice for his popularity amongst the audience.
Mohammed Yusuf Khan, who had kept his stage name as Dilip Kumar for the Indian Cinema industry worked as an actor and producer in Hindi Cinema. Referred to as the "Tragedy King" for his portrayal of serious roles, was also known as the "The First Khan" of Bollywood.
He brought into play the concept of method acting which is widely used by today’s Indian actors. Dilip Kumar held the record for most wins for the Filmfare Award for Best Actor which was later equaled by Shah Rukh Khan. In over 5 decades, Dilip Kumar played over 65 films in a variety of roles, which surely is another achievement on the list.
Falling in love with Madhubala didn’t turn out well for Dilip as he had to testify against her father at a certain point in his life. In 1966, Kumar married actress Saira Banu, who was 22 years younger than him. He later married Hyderabad socialite Asma Sahiba, taking her as a second wife in 1981. The second marriage ended shortly, leaving him and Banu living in Bandra.
Sadly, Dilip Kumar never had any children but he had a devoted wife, Saira Banu, who stood by him till the very last breath.
