Veteran actress Surekha Sikri was rushed to Mumbai’s Criticare hospital after she suffered a brain stroke earlier today. Unfortunately, the actress had already suffered a brain stroke in 2018 following which she also had a minor paralysis. Ever since then, a nurse has been appointed to take care of the ‘Badhai Ho’ actress.

According to a report in Navbharat Times, Surekha’s nurse has appealed to the members of the film industry to help the actress financially during these testing times.


The nurse who looks after Surekha told the tabloid that earlier today, the actress suffered a stroke around 11 am.

“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 actress’ nurse told the daily.

The veteran actress has recently expressed her displeasure over the government’s restrictions on senior actors resuming shoot amidst the Coronavirus scare. The National Award-winning actress was last seen in the sleeper hit ‘Badhaai Ho’.

A few months back, Surekha reacting on reports of seeking financial aid amidst the Covid-19 crisis, had told Hindustan Times, “I don’t want any wrong impression to be created among people that I am going around begging people for money. I don’t want charity. Yes, many have reached out to me, which is very kind of them. I really feel grateful. But I’ve not taken anything from anyone. Give me work and I want to earn respectfully.”

We are praying for Surekha’s speedy recovery. And for more updates on this story stay tuned to this space.
