After suffering a heart attack, Sidharth Shukla died in September. Everyone, including his fans, friends, and family, was stunned. Shehnaaz Gill recently broke her silence for the first time in years and dedicated a song to her late pal. Actor Amit Tandon has also designed a cover, for which he is being brutally chastised.
Many superstars from the television world have paid respect to Sidharth in recent days. Jaan Kumar Sanu, a Bigg Boss participant, has also launched a song in remembrance of SidNaaz. Fans, on the other hand, were not pleased, believing that everything was being done to gain exposure and make money.
Now, Amit Tandon is facing controversy after announcing a cover as a tribute to Sidharth Shukla. Haters have not only targeted him, but also his young daughter and family. The hashtag #DONTUSESIDHARTHSHUKLA is now trending on Twitter.
Reacting to it all, Amit Tandon told Hindustan Times, “My cover of Dil Ko Karaar Aaya was never meant to be a tribute. It was ready four-five months back, but after Sidharth passed away, it would have been insensitive to put it out. I genuinely liked the song, it has been sung well. People started messaging me, ‘You are trying to profit off of him’. These are the same kind of fools who were talking negatively about Shehnaaz, a girl who was literally so close to Sid. Then dude, who am I? Main toh kuchh bhi nahi hoon.”
Amit continued, “If I start responding to each one of them, then God forbid. Some people say, ‘Main tujhe aisa kar dunga’ I said ‘Theek hai, aakar munh pe bolo, dekhta hoon kitne mard ke bacche ho’ because I know they won’t. I have covered Rishi Kapoor ji and Rajesh Khanna ji’s songs also. Am I trying to profit off of them? These stupid people don’t deserve a response, frankly bolun toh inke kaan ke neeche bajana chahiye. Tab samajh mein aayegi.”
