Surekha Sikri started her career in theater by sharpening her acting edge at the National School of Drama.
Surekha Sikri may have worked in any number of films, but she got a door-to-door recognition from the character of Kalyani of the show ‘Balika Vadhu’, which entertained the audience for a long time. This character brought him to a place that every actor-actress wants. Kalyani Devi, the grandmother of the serial ‘Balika Vadhu’, showed such a mixed form of awe and love with her status that everyone became happy with Surekha.
On one hand, his love for Jagya and the strictness for Anandi made him a villain. However, he does not find Aziz any later than Anandi. The entire village used to fall at his feet as soon as he heard a voice of Kalyani Devi. No human in the entire village could have avoided the talk of Kalyani Devi. Even after getting old, Kalyani Devi used to rule her entire area. Surekha’s unmatched acting was that children and women used to fear their domination in many homes. It was the acting of Dadi Sa that this serial made under the direction of Siddharth Sengupta and Pradeep Yadav became the first show to run for a long time.
Surekha Sikri has come a long way in dramas, serials and films after completing her studies at NSD in Delhi. Apart from ‘Kissa Kursi Ka’, ‘Tamas’, ‘Salim Langde Ke Mat Ro’, ‘Little Buddha’, ‘Sarfarosh’, ‘Kali Salwar’, ‘Raincoat’, ‘Tumsa Nahin Dekha’, ‘Humko Deewana Dee Gaya’, Apart from ‘Dev D’, he also worked in super hit films like Ayushman Khurana’s ‘Badhaai Ho’ as well as social film ‘Sheer Korma’. Surekha has not been healthy for a long time. But she is still working.
