Actor Ayushmann Khurrana paid tribute to Sureka Sikri, a three-time National Award-winning actor who suffered a heart attack on Friday at the age of 75.
Ayushmann posted a video clip of Sikri on Instagram Story. In the clip, Sikri Faiz is seen reciting some lines written by Ahmed Faiz. In the monochrome video, Sikri wears a white bird-printed shirt with the lines of “Mujh Se Pehli Si Mohabbat” on his mouth.
“RIP Surekha Sikri,” Ayushmann Khurrana wrote, along with the video.
Ayushmann Khurrana and Surekha worked together on the 2018 hit “Badhaai Ho,” where the former actor played his grandmother as a singer. The film also features Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta.
