Salman Khan Consoles Prince Narula: ‘You’re The Strongest Man I’ve Ever Come Across’

Prince Narula, who shot to fame after his stint on Roadies and Bigg Boss Season 9, lost his 25-year-old brother on July 8. The untimely death came as a shock to the family. Recently, Prince and wife Yuvika were revealed as contestants on Nach Baliye 9. When the topic about Prince’s brother’s untimely death came up on the show, he teared up. Yuvika, too couldn’t help but get emotional.

Salman Khan, who is the producer of the show offered support. He said, “To lose someone this young is the most difficult thing in life. You have come here (on Nach Baliye) despite your brother’s demise... I think you’re the strongest man I have ever come across and now you win this show. You need to win this show and you need to win it for your brother.”

About a month ago, while speaking to an entertainment portal, Prince revealed the details of the tragic accident. He said, “Rupesh had settled in the US. Uski shaadi sirf doh mahine pehle hui thi (It has been just two months since his wedding). He was only 25. Bhabhi was staying with us and her visa etc was being arranged. She would have joined him soon...Bhai was staying with a family in Toronto and they had ventured to a beach spot on Monday. That family went back home after some time, but Rupesh stayed back on the beach with a friend.”


Prince narrated that when the friend left Rupesh to go get his car, he heard a commotion behind him, “The friend also left the beach to pull the car out from the parking lot and Rupesh told him ‘tu chal, main bas aata hoon’ Rupesh’s friend pulled out the car and heard a loud commotion ‘doob gaya, doob gaya’. He ran back inside and they couldn’t find Rupesh for 20 minutes, and when they did, he was no more.”

Prince cleared the air and said that his brother wasn’t depressed and even though the water at the beach wasn’t too deep, it couldn’t have been intentional. Prince said that his brother was, “Not at all (depressed). He was a very happy guy, just married. He was the apple of our eyes.”

Getting back to work after the tragedy takes a strong heart. Hope the family is holding up well.
