Bollywood in tears at Farooq Sheikh’s funeral: Photos

Bollywood celebrities were in tears as they bid a final farewell to veteran actor Farooq Sheikh, who was laid to rest in Andheri on Monday evening.

The body of the 65-year-old actor was earlier in the day brought to Mumbai from Dubai, where he died after a cardiac arrest Friday.

Farooque’s close friends and family members were inconsolable and shared their memories about him.

Deepti Naval: I will never meet a person like him. His friendship matters a lot to me. I was lucky to find a co-star like him. He never did any film for money but only if he liked the script.

Sonali Bendre: I was shocked when I heard the news. I cannot eat biryani without him… whenever I will eat biryani, I will always remember him. He was so gentle and so humble

Shabana Azmi: Parda gir gaya hai. This was our last play which we performed together on Dec 14 in Agra. There will be no show without Farooque. My last interaction with Farooque was when we did our play on Dec 14. I said it’s been 21 years and we should stop this play. And he said ‘Why are you saying this? In fact, we will continue this play for the next 21 years’

Other Bollywood celebs who attended the funeral included Javed Akhtar, Tabu, Farhan and Adhuna Akhtar, Shekhar Suman, Zoya Akhtar, Swara Bhaskar, Ila Arun and Rahul Bose

May your soul rest in Peace Sir- you will always be in my thoughts whenever I watch one of your old school movies- so humble and endearing both on and off screen. Just the other day I saw Toofan with family- we all found your dosti act in it exemplary- love your body of work and you will sincerely be missed Sir…
