Tiku Talsania was last seen on SAB TV’s sitcom Sajan Re Phir Jhooth Mat Bolo. His last silver screen outing was the 2017 release Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi.

On the family front, his daughter Shikha Talsania has appeared in several films, the latest being Coolie No.1.

In an interview, Shikha tagged her father Tiku Talsania as a star. “He had his journey and I’m very proud of him.” When asked if he helped her to realise her Bollywood dream, the actor said, “We were very clear from the beginning that you have to create your own way. My growing up was very regular. I would never hide or tell people (about my father). Who goes and says all that? I’ve always been like that.”

“After giving my last paper in my third year, I went back home and said I think I want to act, but I’m not too sure. They (my parents) had a very real conversation, something I needed at that point of time. They said you’ve seen it is not the most stable thing ever, and as much as you want to get into it, why don’t you explore other options as well. And if it comes along the way and you still want to work at it, then work at it. And I did explore my options,” she told indianexpress.com in an earlier interview.
