Fact Check

The claim that the video was shot just before his death is false.

NewsMeter performed a Google reverse image search with a screenshot of the video and was directed to a report by Celebrity Tadka published on 3 March 2020. The report was titled 'Bigg Boss 13 Winner Siddharth Shukla's Message For His Fans-Watch'

According to the report, Siddharth talks about the love and support he received from his fans throughout his BB13 journey. He expresses his gratitude for them and thanks them for the support they have showered on him throughout his journey on Bigg Boss13. Siddharth adds that the trophy he won is because of his fans and it wouldn't be possible without them. He hopes to never disappoint his fans in any way and keep them all in good spirits. Siddharth gives his best wishes to his supporters.

The actor had also shared the video on his Instagram account on the same day.

He had also shared a similar video on his Twitter account.

It is therefore evident that the claim made through the viral post is false as the video being shared is from 2020, when the late actor thanked his fans for supporting and loving him.
