Friday (June 19) morning brought up one of the most tragic news for the television industry, as ‘Sasural Simar Ka’ fame child actor Shivlekh Singh was killed in a car accident. His parent’s and another person were injured after their car collided with a truck. While several television actors are mourning for the great loss, Barkha Sengupta who had worked with Shivlekh remembers the talented child artist.


Barkha and Shivlekh have shared the screen space in ‘Shrimaan Shrimati Phir Se’. While remembering the late actor, Barkha in a recent interaction with Times Of India said, “I am shocked and I don’t know how to react on this. A co-star of mine called me last night and gave me this tragic news. She told me Chintu is no more, we called him Chintu as he played that role. I couldn’t react for the next few minutes and I am still unable to come to terms with the news of his death. He was such a bright and cute boy. He always had a smile on his face whenever we met him. I remember he was a very good dancer and used to entertain us on the sets with his performances. I am still shocked.”

Apparently, Shivlekh’s parents who gained consciousness on Friday morning, a day after the accident, and have not been informed about their child’s demise. Reportedly the doctors are waiting until their condition gets stable.

Barkha who is a mother too added, “Honestly, I don’t have the courage to talk to his parents. I am a parent myself and I know there’s no greater loss than losing a child. I will definitely speak to them but not now, I think this is not the right time. This is a very difficult time for them. I will speak to them by next week.” 

We offer our heartfelt condolence to the child actor’s family and friends.
