Badshah said that he is on his way to the hospital to meet Sahdev Dirdo in a recent Twitter tweet on Tuesday night.
In his post after Sahdev Dirdo’s accident, Badshah said, “In touch with Sahdev’s family and friends. He is unconscious, on his way to the hospital. I’m there for him. Need your prayers.”
