Pankaj Tripathi was disturbed by this fact about Surekha Sikri

On 16th of July, the acting fraternity mourned the loss of a great artist. Seasoned actress Surekha Sikri, who was primarily known for her work in the television industry passed away after a cardiac arrest. Actor Pankaj Tripathi was deeply saddened by her demise as he was an admirer of Surekha ji since his NSD days. He also shared a fact about her that disturbed him to the core. Surekha Sikri's last performance was in the film 'Badhaai Ho' where she played Ayushmann Khurrana's grandmother.

Apparently, the actress had to audition for the role. Pankaj was disturbed by this. He shared, "I believe she had to audition for her last role in Badhaai Ho. To hear this was heart-breaking. Imagine a stalwart like Surekhaji having to audition like a newcomer. And yet she did it like a thorough professional. I salute her passion."

He further explained why he didn't put out a social media message on her demise. He said, "When Surekhaji died I didn’t put my sorrow on social media. Aaj kal toh agar aap apne jazbaat ko social media pe nahin daalte toh unka koi matlab hi nahin (nowadays if you don’t put your emotions on social media they don’t mean anything). But I didn’t want my feelings for Surekhaji to be put on display. I don’t need that kind of legitimacy."
