However, after a long battle with substance abuse, the 29-year-old comedian had managed to come out of the dark phase and started doing comedy shows. He is currently winning hearts with his performances on ‘Comedy show‘ which is judged by Farah Khan. However, Sidharth recently went missing from the shoot and ETimes TV has exclusively learnt that on August 26th night, cops found him in a very bad state and they called his mother, who was in Delhi at that time. Sidharth’s mother Alka Sagar got him admitted to a rehab and currently he is getting treated there.
Sources close to Sidharth Sagar informed us that he was found in a very unfortunate state. The cops found him and called up his mother immediately and they decided to send him to a rehab.
Sidharth’s parents were always around him as they feared of him going into drugs again.
Sidharth, who was doing the ‘Comedy Show’, was in a terrible condition on Thursday night when the cops found him. He is not part of the Comedy Show at present and Jamie Lever has replaced him.
We asked if Sidharth has again got into drugs, his mother 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 learnt 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 what exactly happened to him. I have got him admitted to a 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 a clarity. I had 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 further shared that Sidharth is bipolar and he had stopped his treatment, “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 till 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 revealed that Sidharth had stopped his treatment for bipolar, “We had started his medication for bipolar but he abruptly quit in between. He stops taking the medicine. I feel something somewhere is not right because of which all these things are happening again and again. He was doing so well in his career. The last time people duped him so badly, they had not even left clothes on his body. He had stopped the treatment for bipolar. He needs to be cured at this moment,” she said.
She feels relieved that something very extreme did not happen to Sidharth and requests the Government to stope the illegal sale of drugs, “I just want to request the Government to ban drugs completely. Doing raids at various places and arresting a few drug peddlers will not help anyone. The drug substance that is available should be banned completely. I am a mother and it breaks my heart. We make movies on drug menace but we are not banning. I am just relieved that nothing like Sushant Singh Rajput happened to him. It was Sidharth’s will power that he got out of drugs last time. Two years he stayed with me and then he started working.”
For the uninitiated, four years ago, Sidharth Sagar had accused his parents, and especially his mother, Alka Sagar, of drawing money from his bank accounts and forcefully keeping him in an asylum. However, last year in an interview to Bombay Times, Sidharth gave credit to his mother for supporting him and getting him out of the dark phase. He reunited with his parents. He even claimed to be clean and out of drugs and that his relationship with his parents was back to what it was three years ago.
