Oh, my God! Today we lost one more queen of big screens, Surekha Sikri, the Dadisa of television. Early in the morning the actor’s manager confirmed the news in his statement, “Three-time national award-winning actress, Surekha Sikri, has passed away following a cardiac arrest earlier this morning at the age of 75. She had been suffering from complications arising from a second brain stroke. She was surrounded by her family and her caregivers. The family asks for privacy at this time. Om Sai Ram.”
The Surekha Sikri’s career extended theatre, films, and television. She made her debut with the 1978 film Kissa Kursi Ka. She received three National Awards in her career for Best Supporting Actress for her performances in Tamas (1988), Mammo (1995), and Badhaai Ho (2018).
