Shabana Azmi distraught over news of Farooq Sheikh’s death

The actor who has been Farooq’s co-star for 21 years in the popular play Tumari Amrita, is devastated with the news of his sudden death

One of Indian cinema’s finest actors, Farooq Sheikh was on a holiday in Dubai when he suddenly died of a massive heart attack.

Devastated by the sudden tragedy, Shabana said: “I can’t believe he’s gone so suddenly and so cruelly! Farooq was in Dubai with his wife and daughters when he suddenly suffered a massive heart attack. He just collapsed! Just like that. Is that any way to go?”

Shabana did some of her best films with Farooq. These include Sagar Sarhadi’s Lorie, Kalpana Lajmi’s Ek Pal and Muzaffar Ali’s Anjuman. Not to mention the play Tumhari Amrita, directed by Feroz Abbas Khan. “We were close friends from before we worked together. We were in college together. I can’t believe he’s gone,” she said.

Farooq began his illustrious film career with MS Sathyu’s Garam Hawa. He went on to do some of the most iconic Hindi films including Sai Paranjpye’s Chashme Buddoor and Sagar Sarhadi’s Bazaar. He was last seen last month in Sanjay Tripathy’s Club 60.
