The unpredictable, ghastly shortness of life remains baffling... Await to meet you on the other side," tweeted The Lunchbox star Nimrat Kaur.
Sharing an old video with Seher, Swara Bhasker wrote, “Seher, I teased you because I didn't know how to tell you how much I like you- for your warmth, for your cheer, for your gentle goodness, for your kindness to strugglers, for your fun, for your beliefs, for standing up for me, for unwittingly helping me out of a dark place. I wish we'd met this last month Seher. I wish I'd referred to u as ‘Seth ji'... If we are wishing, what I really wish is this cruel accident of fate be reversed and you threaten not to sign my cheques again. I can't say goodbye Seher Aly Latif... Not yet, not yet…”
