Sahdev Dirdo, the boy who earned viral fame for his Bachpan ka Pyaar video, is doing “better” after meeting with a road accident on Tuesday, according to rapper Badshah.
Badshah, who released a remix version of Bachpan ka Pyaar, featuring Dirdo, in August, took to Twitter to share an update on the young singer’s condition. “Sahdev is better now and has regained consciousness. Will go to Raipur to see a good neurosurgeon. Thank you for your prayers,” he wrote.
On Tuesday, Badshah revealed on his Instagram stories that Dirdo had met with an accident and was taken to a hospital. “Sahdev Dirdo had an accident, injuries on his head, unconscious, on his way to the hospital which is a 100 kms away. In touch with his family and friends. I am there for him. Need your prayers,” the rapper had shared.
According to News18, Dirdo got injured when the motorcycle he was riding pillion on, skidded. The accident took place at around 6.30 pm in Shabri Nagar, Sukma. As he was not wearing a helmet, the 10-year-old suffered a serious head injury, while the rider only sustained minor bruises, said Sukma Superintendent of Police Sunil Sharma.
Dirdo was rushed to the district hospital and after preliminary treatment was shifted to Jagdalpur Medical College hospital, Sharma added.
Both Sharma and Sukma Collector Vineet Nandanwar visited the district hospital and enquired about the boy’s condition after being alerted about the accident. The report further states that Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel instructed Nandanwar to provide the best medical aid at the earliest to Dirdo.
In 2019, Dirdo became an internet sensation after a video of him singing the song Bachpan Ka Pyaar went viral. The video was reportedly shot in 2019 inside his classroom by his school teacher. After his sudden fame, while several content creators used his video to make their own content, Badshah created a remix of the song and included Dirdo in the music video, along with Aastha Gill.
