National Film Award winner Surekha Sikri is recovering from a brain stroke
Surekha Sikri has been making the rounds of the internet for her big win at the National Film Awards for her character in the film ‘Badhaai Ho’. She has played some really impactful roles in both television and films. But the actress seems to have hit a little speed bump along the way as she is currently recovering from a brain stroke.
According to a report by SpotboyE, Surekha spoke about her current condition and said, “I had a brain stroke in November last year and I fell down when I was shooting. Since then, I’m recovering from a medical situation and my condition is improving. ‘Badhaai Ho’ released in October and within a month I faced this due to which I got minor paralysis. I am unable to eat much and that’s why I have lost a lot of weight. I have my family around to take care of me and I also have a wonderful physiotherapist who comes and helps me out with my movements.” It is good to know that Surekha’s condition is getting better and that her health is improving.
Shashank Vyas aka ‘Jagya’ who starred alongside Surekha where she played the evergreen ‘Kalyani Devi’ in the hit show ‘Balika Vadhu’ also paid the ailing actress a visit to congratulate her for her big win. He took to his Instagram to share snaps from his visit.

In the report, Surekha also spoke about her future projects as she said, “I have signed a short film which will be directed by Zoya Akhtar and it’s a very exciting project for which I will soon start shooting.”
When she was asked if there is a sequel in the making of ‘Bhadai Ho’, she said, “For that, you have to ask the writers and director Amit Sharma as to what do they feel about it. But if you ask me, then there are a lot of possibilities in the story that could propel a sequel and something interesting can be made. If it happens, I would just love to be a part of the same. After winning the award, I have received many calls and even the director of this team congratulated me. Also, our screenplay writer, other than my co-actors Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao also called and congratulated me. It’s a great feeling as everyone seemed to be so happy about it.”
Well, we hope and pray that the actress recovers completely and is back on her feet healthy and hearty soon. For more updates stay tuned to this space.
