Popular ITV actor and Bigg Boss 13 winner Sidharth Shukla has made his digital debut with Ekta Kapoor‘s much awaited web series Broken But Beautiful 3. The third installment of the web series is now streaming on ALTBalaji. The handsome hunk is seen opposite Sonia Rathee in the web series.
The actor has essayed the role of Agastya Rao (a theatre director) whereas Sonia played the character of Rumi Desai (Agastya‘s love interest). The web series has received a great response from viewers so far. While the audience is now watching Broken But Beautiful 3, Sidharth‘s family saw a few glimpses of the show in advance.
In an interaction with Times Now Digital, Sidharth spoke about his family’s reaction and revealed why he took up Broken But Beautiful 3. He also opened up on his equation with Sonia Rathee. Speaking about his mother and family’s reaction to the series, Sidharth said, “My mom, my sisters and our entire family have loved the glimpses they have seen so far.”
The actor further revealed the reason why he decided to take up Broken But Beautiful 3 as his first OTT project. Sidharth said, “When I first read the script, I could relate to Agastya a lot. There have been times when I have gone through similar situations or felt similarly emotionally. And hence, for me, one of the main reasons I loved Agastya’s character is that he’s very real, very relatable. He isn’t perfect but I don’t think any of us are and he’s on a journey like many of us in our respective careers and fields, to accomplish his vision in life.”
Talking about his equation with co-star Sonia Rathee, Sidharth went on to add that it was great. He stated that he tried to ensure that the atmosphere was fun so that Sonia would feel comfortable as it was her first show. Sidharth said, “And two people working together shouldn’t feel like strangers, hence it’s always good to joke around and break the ice.”
