He was last seen in Raj & DK’s web series ‘Farzi’ starring Shahid Kapoor in the lead role. The filmmakers took to their Twitter handle to fond memories of working with the late actor.
They wrote, “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.”
Further, they added, “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!”
Sameer’s brother Ganesh Khakhar confirmed the news of his death. According to a report, the 71-year-old also suffered from respiratory issues and urinary issues.
