“Sidharth on the other hand could not sleep so he asked Shehnaaz to be with him and just pat his back,” the report quoted a source close to the late actor. It is also believed that both his mom and Shehnaaz first offer him Nimbu Paani and later ice cream to make him feel better but Sidharth kept complaining of anxiety. The report added, “Around 1:30 am, Sidharth slept in Shehnaaz’s lap and the latter then slowly moved away. She too slept and around 7 am when she woke up, she saw Sidharth sleeping in the same position without any movement and when she tried to wake him up, he did not move.” Also Read - Shehnaaz Gill Took Sidharth Shukla to Hospital in Morning- Report
