Stand-up comedian Sidharth Sagar, who was doing well for himself after coming out of drugs in 2018 is again in a bad state. He has been admitted to a rehab facility after reportedly suffering a relapse. Sources close to Sidharth Sagar informed us that he was found in a very unfortunate state. The cops found him on 26th August’s night and called up his mother immediately and they decided to send him to rehab.
This 29-year-old comedian already has a history of drug abuse, and according to his mother, was undergoing treatment for bipolar disorder. Sagar was seen in Zee TV’s ‘Comedy Show’ judged by Farah Khan. However, As Sidharth recently went missing from the shoot, he was replaced with Jamie Lever to keep the show on-air.
When inquired with his mother about him getting into drugs again she said, “I was with Sidharth all this while and had recently come to Delhi because my 12-year-old pet was very unwell and I had to rush back home. After I came here I learned about Sidharth and I was devastated to know and it was a big setback for me. But as I am out of Mumbai I have no clarity on what exactly happened to him. I have got him admitted to rehab but I haven’t got a chance to know what exactly went wrong. I am travelling to Mumbai today and will be meeting him, only after that I will have clarity. I got a call from the police station that Sidharth Sagar was found in a bad state and he only remembered my name and number and they called me up.”
“They asked me to take him from there. The tragic part is whenever he has got into such a situation none of his friends, well wishes or anyone has come forward to help him. It has always been his parents but he has never understood to value his family. I am a mother and I want him to get out of the situation. I have always been around him and never let him be alone, but unfortunately, I had to travel to Delhi for my pet who was unwell and later passed away. We came here and we got a call about Sidharth. I am yet to figure out what exactly went wrong.” She also added that “Not many are aware that he was undergoing treatment for bipolar and he used to have hallucinations. I tried to balance his life and got him here. I had always told him that the more popular you get, the more enemies you will make in the industry. I had always taught him to lead a balanced life and not to run behind money. For me, peace is the most important thing and I had told him that. We can feed you your entire life but don’t want to see you again in a bad state. I will fight for my son till my last breath and not let anyone come in between. If it would not have been urgent I would have never travelled to Delhi. I am not sure if it is because of drugs or because he had stopped his treatment for bipolar. That I will only get to know him when I speak to him when I come back to Mumbai”, Alka Sagar said.
