Veteran actor, Surekha Sikri, won millions of hearts by an Indian dailysoap called ‘Baalika Vadhu’. She also gave a marvellous performance in the movie ‘Badhai Ho’. However, lately luck is not in her fortune as she suffered a brain stroke on Tuesday morning. She was immediately rushed to Criticare Hospital in Mumbai. Yet another problem has developed in this situation. The actress is facing a financial crunch and does not have enough money for treatments. She couldn’t get admitted to big hospitals due to exorbitantly high fees.
Surekha Sikri suffers Brainstroke:
The nurse who looks after the 75 year old told Mumbai Mirror, “I rushed her to the hospital and she is currently being treated. I couldn’t get her admitted to any other hospital because of high fees. We do not have that kind of money.” The financial crisis in her life is majorly due to the suspension of work during the coronavirus induced lockdown. In addition, after the lifting of lockdown, senior actors were prohibited from starting their shooting schedule.
However, the friends that she has earned during her lifetime have come forward to help her financially. ‘Badhai Ho’ co-star Gajraj Rao and the director of the same film are extending support to the best of their abilities. Gajraj said, “Both Amit Sharma, the Badhaai Ho director, and I are in touch with Surekha ji’s secretary Vivek and yes, we are all there with her and we’ll extend all help we can, to her.”
Also, this is not the first time when the actress is suffering from a brain stroke. She went through the same phase in 2018 as well when she slipped in the bathroom and hit her head accidentally. Later she had told Hindustan Times, “I had a brain stroke ten months ago and I have been recovering since then. I fell down and hit my head in the bathroom while shooting in Mahabaleshwar. I have not been able to work due to my illness. The doctors say that I will be alright soon.”
The veteran actor is one of the first few actors in the industry to have won multiple awards for her talent of acting.
