Mumbai, October 9 - Late actor Sidharth Shukla has won the best actor award for his role in "Broken But Beautiful 3". The actor, who marked his digital debut with Ekta Kapoor's show, won Popular Actor (Male) in Web Originals by SCREENXX for his portrayal of Agastya Rao in the series.
"Broken But Beautiful 3" was the last project Sidharth Shukla worked in before he died of a heart attack on September 2. The Dil Se Dil Tak actor was praised for his performance in the ALTBalaji web series and won the hearts of his fans.
Apart from Sidharth, "Broken But Beautiful 3" also bagged awards for Best Marketing and Best Use of Social Media. Ex Bigg Boss contestant Vikas Gupta took to Twitter and congratulate the late actor and the BBB3 team for their respective awards. "Congratulations Bhai a very well deserved one @sidharth_shukla and to the whole team of #BrokenButBeautiful3 @ektarkapoor @SaritaTanwar @TweetBaljit @altbalaji @realsoniarathee and his loved ones", Vikas wrote.
Broken But Beautiful 3 revolved around Agastya Rao (Sidharth Shukla) and Rumi Desai (Sonia Rathee), who are very different from each other. While Agastya is a theatre director, Rumi comes from an affluent family. Eventually, they both experienced love and heartbreak. The web series shows how it is hard to fall out of love than to fall in it.
The web show is created and developed by Ekta Kapoor. The series is directed by Priyanka Ghose. While the first two seasons had Vikrant Massey and Harleen Sethi in the lead roles, season 3 starred Sidharth Shukla and Sonia Rathee as Agastya and Rumi Desai respectively. The show premiered on May 29 on ALTBalaji and MX Player.
