Her co-stars are saddened by the demise of well-known Bollywood and television actress Surekha Sikri. Many stars who have worked with Surekha have remembered her on social media. Ayushmann Khurrana, Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta, who worked with her in the film Badhaai Ho, have also paid tribute to Surekha Sikri by writing a long post on social media. Let us inform that Surekha Sikri received the National Award for Best Supporting Actress for Badhaai Ho in 2018.
Was told to Ayushman – ‘I wish I could get more work’
Sharing two pictures of himself with Surekha Sikri, Ayushmann wrote, In every film we have a family with whom we spend more time than our family. Congratulations to such a beautiful family. It was a perfect family whose head was Surekha Sikri, who was a great man and had a young heart. I remember when we were returning from the screening of Badhaai Ho, I told him – Ma’am, you are the real star of our film and he said, I wish I could get more work. Hearing this, Tahira and I were stunned. You were a legend and will always be missed surekha ma’am.
Surekha ji was a child at heart
Gajraj Rao wrote, Making a film is like traveling in a train where the journey itself becomes a halt. You meet a variety of co-travellers. Some open their box and their heart for you, some look at you with suspicion while guarding their belongings. Congratulations, it must have been the same special train journey for me that brought me a new station of life. I am happy that we got the support of Surekha ji. She was a child at heart and had no pride in her stature and endless experience as an actress. Her riyaaz and childlike enthusiasm as an actress made her the best.
Wanted to be an actress like Surekha ji: Neena
Badhaai Ho actress Neena Gupta also said in a video remembering Surekha on social media, “This morning I got bad news that Surekha is no more. When I was a student at the National School of Drama, I used to see her and think that I want to be an actress like her. This is a long time ago. Then we got a chance to work in Badhaai Ho and before that we worked together in Saloni. I used to watch how she works on her scenes. I learned a lot from him and there was much to learn from him.
