Actor Rakesh Bedi, who has worked with Farooq Sheikh in the films like SAATH SAATH, CHASHME BUDDOOR and plays and moreover both being part of IPTA, says it's a huge loss as Farooq Sheikh passed away this morning.

He expressed, ''It's such a big loss. We were about to do a play and even had a word day before yesterday. As we (director Raman Kumar, Farooq and I) are all members of IPTA, we have been constantly in touch.''

Rakesh further says it's a loss for the film industry as a whole, though Farooq is known as parallel cinema's icon.

''It's a biggest shock for the industry as a whole. Yes he was one of the pioneers in parallel cinema but he equally contributed for entertaining & non-commercial films.''

Farooq, who was holidaying with his family in Dubai, breathed his last due to a massive heart attack.

He adds, ''It is unbelievable because as I know he was the healthiest man of our industry. He never indulged in any sort of addiction, not even smoking. On the contrary, he was a fitness freak and had a great physique. Though he had a soft image & persona, he was a tough man within.''

The veteran actor Farooq is survived by his wife and two daughters.
