News Verification In the viral video, a young man in his workout outfit can be seen climbing the stairs, but he suddenly stops and sits on the stairs to take a rest. Seeing the video, it seems that there is some problem in his chest, as he constantly presses his chest while sitting on the ladder. A minute later, the young man, said to be Siddharth Shukla, tries to climb the stairs again. However, he can be seen again in trouble, after which he sits down on the stairs. Soon after, he loses his senses and falls to the floor. Let us tell you that the alleged video that went viral on the internet is not of actor Siddharth Shukla.

The viral video has been doing the rounds on the internet for more than a week now. This CCTV footage is of an apartment in Bangalore. The video is of a 33-year-old Bangalore youth who died of a heart attack after exercising.

The young man died of a heart attack after a gym session. Incidentally, there is a time stamp on the CCTV footage which clearly shows that the incident was recorded on 25 August 2021, almost a week before the death of Sidharth Shukla. Hence, the video has nothing to do with Siddharth Shukla's death. Actor Siddharth Shukla gained popularity with his role in serials like 'Balika Vadhu' and also became the winner, in reality, show Bigg Boss 13. He also starred in 'Dil Se Dil Tak' and hosted the crime drama series 'Savdhaan India' and the reality show 'India's Got Talent. She made her Bollywood debut in 2014 with the film Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. According to reports, he took medicine last night but did not wake up in the morning. However, at the moment it is not clear what kind of medicine he had taken.
