Just minutes after news reports emerged that actor Sidharth Shukla died due to a heart attack, some social media users took to Twitter to post a video claiming that the footage of the actor’s death was captured on CCTV.
A social media user identified as @HalkutManus posted CCTV footage to claim that Sidharth Shukla’s tragic death due to a heart attack was captured on a CCTV camera.
In the viral video, a young man in his workout gear can be seen climbing steps, who suddenly stops as he faces discomfort. He sits on the steps to take a bit of rest. The young man can be seen in massive pain, who presses his chest and arms. A minute later, the young man, who is being claimed as Sidharth Shukla, tries to climb the steps, however, he suffers further discomfort again.
As he sits on the steps, he loses his consciousness and collapses onto the floor.
The purported video that has gone viral on the internet is not connected to the deceased actor Sidharth Shukla.
The viral video has been doing rounds on the internet for over a week now. The CCTV footage was captured from an apartment in Bengaluru. The video pertains to an incident in which a 33-year-old young man from Bengaluru could be seen falling unconscious on staircase.
The young man collapsed due to a heart attack after a gym session. Incidentally, there is a time stamp on the CCTV footage that clearly shows that the incident was recorded on 25-August-2021, almost a week before Sidharth Shukla’s death.
33 years young man died due to #HeartAttack, after workout in #gym in Bangalore. His final moments captured on CCTV. Youngsters should be careful about excessive workout. They should do gyming only after a thorough #Heart checkup and advice from doctor👇 pic.twitter.com/iFOKBf5WVq— Arun Deshpande 🇮🇳 75🇮🇳 (@ArunDeshpande20) September 1, 2021
Hence, the video has no connection to Sidharth Shukla’s death whatsoever.
