Bollywood actor Neena Gupta remembered her Badhaai Ho co-star late Surekha Sikri in an Instagram video. Gupta said she always wanted to become an actor like Sikri.
Veteran actor Surekha Sikri, who became a household name after playing ‘Dadisa’ in daily soap Balika Vadhu, passed away on Friday.
The 75-year-old as well as three-time National Award winning-actress succumbed to a cardiac arrest on Friday morning.
“We have worked together in two films, Saloni and Badhaai Ho. Even in her 70’s, she was a dedicated actor. I’m sad to know that Surekha Ji is no more; there was so much left to learn from her,” said Gupta.
Remembering the shooting schedules of Badhaai Ho, Gupta said, “I used to observe her silently as he gave her shots; she never got tired of giving retakes.”
