The YOUNGISTAAN team including Jackky Bhagnani, Neha Sharma, Kayoze Irani, director Syed Ahmad Afzal, producers Vashu Bhagnani and N.P. Singh started off the event with a small video as a tribute to the late actor. The video captured Farooq Sheikh's last few moments while shooting for the film before the tragedy occurred.
While everybody present at the event controlled their emotions, his wife Rupa broke down after watching the video. ''I miss him. But I know that wherever he is, he is in peace and bliss. I thank the entire team of YOUNGISTAAN for this effort. While shooting for the film, he (Farooq Sheikh) had only two things to tell me - One that the production house is good and second that Jackky (Bhagnani) doesn't eat anything. I am emotional but I will not cry because I know he is happy up there,'' shared an emotional Rupa.
YOUNGISTAAN will be Farooq Sheikh's last appearance on the celluloid and is slated to release on March 28, 2014.
