The actor had promised her to perform the last rites hence he left immediately for Bhikhiwind after learning about the unfortunate news.
Randeep Hooda kept his promise to Dalbir who saw Sarabjit in him. The biopic movie narrated the story of Dalbir Kaur’s fight to get justice for her brother Sarabjit Singh. The lead characters were played by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Randeep Hooda respectively. Sarabjit Singh was a farmer from Bhikhiwind town in Punjab.

Remembering the departed soul, Randeep took to Twitter to share a picture of him with Dalbir. He penned a heartfelt note that read: “Ghar zaroor aana” was the last thing she said. I went, only she left. 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, its 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.”
He further reminisced the time shooting with her. He wrote: “Ironically the last time we met was when I was shooting in the fields of Punjab 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 raho, jai jai jai’ she ended most conversations with. I do feel truly blessed indeed. There just wasn’t enough time Dalbir Ji.”
“I love you, I miss you and I shall always cherish your love and blessings.” He concluded the note on Om Shanti with folded hands emoji. Randeep received praises for his intense character of the late Sarabjit in the 2016 biographical drama.
