Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda paid an emotional tribute to Sarabjit Singh's sister, Dalbir Kaur, after she left for heavenly abode.
Expressing his disbelief to the news of her death, the actor wrote, "Not in the wildest dream could one imagine that Dalbir Kaur ji would leave us so soon. A fighter, child like, sharp and devoted to all that she touched."
"She fought a system, a country, it’s people and her own to try save her beloved brother Sarbjit. I was so fortunate to have her love and blessings and never to be missed Rakhi in this life time. Ironically, the last time we met was when I was shooting in thr fields of Punjabi where we had created an Indo-Pak border. It was a chilly and foggy late November night but she didn’t care about all that. She was happy we were on the same side of the border. ‘Khush reh, jug jug jeeye’, she often ended most conversations with. I do feel truly blessed indeed. There wasn’t enough time Dalbir ji. I love you, I miss you and I shall always cherish your love and blessings. Om Shanti,” he mentioned in the note.
