Several Bollywood stars took to social media to share their condolences, among them were Parineeti Chopra, Ayushmannh Khurrana, Raj, and DK to name a few.
Parineeti and Ayushmann had worked with him in Meri Pyaari Bindu. Parineeti shared, “An absolute legend and my favourite co-star. Your love, wisdom, and humour made Hasee Toh Phasee and Meri Pyari Bindu my most special. Will never forget your laugh, your straight-faced jokes, and most importantly, the invaluable life lessons. Goodbye Sameer Sir will never forget you.” Ayushmann said, “RIP #SameerKhakhar JI.”
Raj and DK too shared a post and captioned it saying, “Khopdi from Nukkad had made such an impact on us as kids! He was different and quirky. He was inebriated, but always spoke the truth. Then decades later we read his interview, where he mentioned how he longed to get back in front of the camera. And we jumped to get him to do a cameo in #Farzi. The original elan and improv was intact! With each take, he tried to do something fun. Just the outtakes were so hilarious. We were lucky to have worked with this maverick actor, even if for one day! May his soul rest in peace! Always in our hearts #SameerKhakhar.”
