My closest friends from the time still call me Khopdi. But I guess it’s time to say goodbye to the OG. Goodbye, Sameer Khakhar. Thank you for the memories.”

Sameer Khakhar was known for his roles in Nukkad and Shrimaan Shrimati. He made appearances in Bollywood films such as Hasee Toh Phasee, starring Parineeti Chopra and Sidharth Malhotra, Vikas Bahl’s web series Sunflower, Sudhir Mishra’s Serious Men, and Salman Khan’s Jai Ho.
