In his twenties, he was detected with a serious mental disorder named schizophrenia. After suffering from the disorder for a few years, he committed suicide in 1997. [4]Hindustan Times In an interview, while talking about Siddharth, his father, Kabir Bedi said,

Siddharth was a very brilliant young man… He was exceptional in his abilities, and then suddenly, one day, he couldn’t think. We tried so hard to first figure out what was wrong, and for three years, we battled these unknown ghosts, and eventually he had this extremely violent breakout in the streets of Montreal, and it took eight policemen to nail him down. And then, the doctors in Montreal finally diagnosed him as schizophrenic.”

In a blog, Pooja Bedi shared her memories with her brother. She wrote,

I miss my brother Siddharth deeply. We were inseparable as kids. Same school, same friends, same room. We travelled together, fought, laughed and loved each other madly. His being diagnosed with schizophrenia and his suicide in 1997 left my life changed forever. He was a, sensitive, caring, gentle and witty person.. The void of his death and subsequently my mother’s death in 1998 is something I can never fill.”
