Farooq Sheik was Big B’s best friend .Big B said, “Just up to the news of Farooq Sheikh passing away! Cannot believe that he has gone! A wonderful colleague, a gentle presence about him, no pretense of any kind. His work and his demeanor breathed a certain honesty, hard to find in most. Farooq Sheikh was the only one to congratulate him when the Swedish Investigator in the Bofors scandal revealed that Big B’s name had been ‘deviously planted’.”
“Honesty and an absence of pretense does not need to know. They show up and get recognized, without provocation!! Prayers and condolences,” Big B added. He has done his best performance in films like ‘Garm Hava’, ‘Shatranj Ke Khiladi’, ‘Chashme Buddoor’ and ‘Kissi Se.
