Sidharth Shukla won the Popular Actor (Male) in Web Originals in Hindi and Regional Award in Adgully’s SCREENXX 2021 award summit.
The late actor was awarded for his role in Broken but Beautiful Season 3. Sidharth Shukla starred opposite Sonia Rathee in the show. Broken but Beautiful also bagged Best Marketing for a Web Original- Digital Only Award. After the first two seasons, the production house came forward with the third one, a slightly different plot. Instead of exploring the beauty of unrequited love, it showcased a toxic relationship between its leads. The show is available on Alt Balaji.
Apart from Broken but Beautiful, Alt Balaji was felicitated with two more awards at the summit. Ekta Kapoor received the ‘Entrepreneur of the Year Award. While ‘Best Marketing for a Web Original- Across Platforms’ was won by The Married Women. It starred Ridhi Dogra and Monica Dogra. The plot takes the audience through the life of a married woman and her journey of self-discovery when she meets Peeplika, an independent and unconventional artist.
Alt Balaji took to Twitter to share the joyous moment with ” Time for celebration! Thank you #SCREENXX for honouring us with so many awards. We’re overwhelmed. #SCREENXX2021 @ektarkapoor #SidharthShukIa @iRidhiDogra @MonicaSDogra @realsoniarathee @divyenndu @anshul14chauhan @adgully .”
