Film actor Salim Diwan: Siddharth Shukla’s sudden death again made us realise that life is not permanent and that death is inevitable

Sidharth Shukla’s untimely demise left the entertainment industry, his friends and fans heartbroken. The actor was 40. He reportedly died of a severe heart attack. His demise has sort of made many of us realise that our life is both uncertain and unpredictable, and therefore we must live every moment to the fullest, feels Salim Diwan. He also expresses shock, grief and hopes that God gives Sidharth’s family strength to deal with this huge loss.

Life is like a test for all of us, you have to be active and stay focused in whatever moment you have with you. You have to enjoy life to the fullest. Siddharth Shukla’s death made us realise once again that life is not permanent and that death is inevitable. We have to follow the right lifestyle for a healthy body, mind and soul. This is the hardest truth but sometimes being involved with something which is not suitable for us leads us to a bad situation,” adds the actor, who done projects like who has been a part of projects like Ankur Arora Murder Case, Bollywood Diaries and Perfect Scream.

He continues, “While making long term planning it should be kept in mind that our present should not get disrupted or compromised for the same. I believe in living in the present. Agar mein future ki fikar karunga aur aaj mein nahi jiyunga to meri kismat bura maan jayegi. I Believe in the philosophy of caring and making others happy as much as possible. That’s what makes our life better and memorable, even if you live for a short period of time, you should make your presence felt with your good behaviour, kindness and work.”

Salim refers to the recently released film Shershaah to explain his emotions, thoughts and realisations further.

I really liked the film Shershaah. PVR (Param Vir Chakra) Captain Vikram Batra and his passion and spirit towards the country is something that gave me goosebumps. We all must learn from him. This is the moment of your life which tells much more of you than anything else. We should avoid complicating life, forgive and not hurt anyone knowingly or unknowingly,” he adds.
