Randeep and Dalbir formed a bond when the actor played her late brother in the film. She told Randeep that she sees Sarabjit Singh in him and asked him to give her “kandha” (offering his shoulder before taking the body to cremation) when she dies.

Randeep accepted and immediately left Mumbai for her home village when he heard the news of her death. Dalbir died of a heart attack in Bhikhiwind near Amritsar, Punjab, on Sunday, June 26. Randeep soon arrived in the village to pay his last respects and also lit the pyre during the last rites.

Sarbjit, a film by Omung Kumar, starring Richa Chadha and Darshan Kumaar, was a box office success and received mixed reviews from critics. It was released more than three years after Sarbjit died in Lahore after being attacked by his fellow inmates at Kot Lakhpat prison.

At an event that marked three years after her brother’s death, Dalbir had said of Randeep, “I’d like to tell Randeep that I really saw Sarabjit in him. I have a wish and I would like to make a promise to him that if I die he will definitely give me ‘kandha’ (shoulder). My soul will receive the peace that Sarabjit gave me ‘kandha’.’ She had also said, “It was a matter of great joy that I found my brother Randeep. In the film, he is not only a hero, but also my brother.”
