Veteran actress Surekha Sikri who plays Indermati Mehra in Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil opposite Arjun Bijlani and Drashti Dhami, fainted on the sets recently. The 71-years-old actress said in a statement,” I did faint on set while shooting. It was due to weakness and I happened to skip lunch that day as I was engrossed in shooting. My doctor has advised me to eat at regular intervals and keep eating healthy food.” The entire cast and crew of the show has been having an erratic work schedule for the last few weeks since people might want to take few days off for the New Year and this was one of the reasons why the actress skipped her meal.
The actress is also seen in Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani as Badi Rani Maa opposite Eisha Singh, Sartaj Gill and Iqbal Khan. Surekha plays a positive role in Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil as opposed to her negative role in Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani. People are loving her as Indu Mehra since she is doing a positive role in this one. She was a popular household name after portraying the role of Dadisa in Balika Vadhu. In fact, she won an award for her role in Balika Vadhu. The actress has done a series of negative roles over the years and with Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil we get to see her in a totally different avatar.

In the show, Indu Mehra is desperately waiting to see her grandson Veer’s child ever since Sanjana announced that she is pregnant with Veer’s child. Though Naina (Drashti Dhami) knows about Sanjana’s fake pregnancy, she cannot tell Daadi (Surekha Sikri) about it since it might affect her health. Sanjana also challenges Naina that Raghav (Arjun Bijlani) won’t trust her if she tries to tell him anything. It will be interesting to watch Naina expose Sanjana without affecting Daadi’s health and after gaining Raghav’s trust. What do you think?
