On May 29, late actor Sidharth Shukla’s hit streaming show Broken But Beautiful 3 clocked one year of its premiere. Bankrolled by Ekta Kapoor for her streaming media platform ALTBalaji, the show marked the digital debut of Shukla and received an overwhelming response upon its release last year.
Shukla played the role of Agastya in the show while actress Sonia Rathee was seen as Rumi. The show revolved around the theme of a toxic relationship. Agastya happened to be an alcoholic theatre director who was a foul-mouthed bully. Rumi, on the other hand, was a rich spoilt brat who had only one purpose to make her childhood crush fall in love with her. Shukla won multiple awards posthumously for his portrayal of Agastya.
