Mumbai, July 16: ‘Boho’, ‘chiller’ and ‘young at heart’ — actor Ayushmann Khurrana outpoured his love for veteran actor Surekha Sikri, who died on Friday morning after suffering a heart attack. RIP Surekha Sikri: Like Avika Gor in Balika Vadhu, Even Vatsal Sheth in Just Mohabbat Started His Acting Career Working Alongside the Acclaimed Actress.
The demise of Surekha Sikri has made Ayushmann emotional. He took to Instagram and recalled his experience of working with the late iconic actor in the 2018 released film ‘Badhaai Ho’.
“In every film we have a family and we end up spending more time with the film family than our own families. One such beautiful family was in ‘Badhaai Ho‘. Out of all my films, it was the perfect family with a perfect cast. Surekha Sikri was the head of our family, who was more progressive than the entire family tree. You know what, that was her in real life too. A complete boho. A chiller. Young at heart,” he wrote.

Ayushmann also shared an anecdote from his last conversation with Surekha Sikri. “I remember when she was boarding an auto-rickshaw after the screening of our film, Tahira and I gave her a lift back home and we said “ma’am you are the real star of our film” and she replied ‘wish I get more work’. Tahira and I were speechless. We watched her frail demeanour walking towards her building. That’s my last memory of her,” he added, urging people to “watch her recite Faiz Ahmed Faiz’s nazm ‘Mujhse Pehli Si Mohabbat Mere Mehboob Na Maang’.”
“Aapko unse our mohabbat ho jaayegi. An impeccable performer. A consummate artiste. A legend,” he wrote. “You’ll be missed Surekha ma’am. Thank you for the beautiful memories. #RIPSurekhaSikri,” Ayushmann concluded. RIP Surekha Sikri: From Manoj Bajpayee to Randeep Hooda, Celebs Mourn the Loss of National Award-Winning Actress.
