At an online prayer meeting on Monday, friends, admirers, and many representatives of the entertainment industry reflected on the death of TV star Sidharth Shukla.
The Brahmakumaris led the prayer meeting, which was held virtually from the late actor’s family home in Mumbai. Sidharth, who had a strong spiritual bent, was a member of the religious group.
Sidharth Shukla frequented the Brahmakumari centre and was last seen there on the day of Raksha Bandhan. Tapaswiniji, a well-known Brahmakumari teacher, had previously stated in a media interview: “He came to our Vile Parle centre and our Yoginiji there tied rakhi on him.”
Rita Shukla, Sidharth Shukla’s mother, is a Brahmakumaris adherent as well. Brahmakumari Yogini Didi led the online prayer meeting on Monday, and Sister Shivani blessed the departed soul.
