The recent news of Ashraf Sinclair’s passing has left a significant mark not only on fans and friends of the talented heartthrob, but particularly his family members including his one and only sister Aishah Sinclair.

It’s revealed that the MIX fm announcer was informed about the shocking news 10 minutes before she went on air. As a result, Aishah – along with her parents – had to book the earliest flight tickets to Jakarta.

Soon after his funeral took place, the 39-year-old took to her Instagram, thanking everyone “who reached out, called, and flew all the way (to Indonesia).” Aishah added, “This has been one of the toughest days my family has ever gone through, your love and support means a lot to us.” She further expressed her gratitude knowing that her elder brother had received tremendous loves from everyone.

One of Ashraf’s closest friends in the entertainment scene, Sazzy Falak also came down to the neighbouring country to bid her last farewell to her “Gol & Gincu” co-star. The actress-TV host posted a series of heartfelt statements on her Instagram Stories, recalling on the time when she visited Ashraf in Jakarta last year to the moment when she first received the unfortunate news.

Other celebrities who had the honour to work with Ashraf in the past – namely Zul Ariffin and Fazura – also took to their official social media accounts to pay their tributes to the Malaysian-British figure. Zul first met Ashraf back in 2004 for a commercial ad shoot. On the other hand, the award-winning actress starred together with Ashraf and Sazzy in “Gol & Gincu”.

Zul was also seen in attendance during the funeral ceremony. As at time of writing (Wednesday, 19th February), the “Sangkar” actor is still in Jakarta and even took some time to visit his graveyard. Feel free to check out their posts here:

The minute I got the news from Indonesia this morning, I immediately thought it was a hoax. No way I thought. Then, I was told it was confirmed by Doddy (Bunga’s manager). I sat down in disbelief with tears and all the memories of Ash came flashing by my eyes. Ash, It took me the entire day to digest the fact that you’re gone. It still doesn’t seem real. But I want to put my feelings out there because u mean so much to me. We grew up together in the early days of our career. Those many years and late nights of filming “Gol dan Gincu” has turn us all into a family. Ashraf was not only a co-star, the guy that changed Putri’s life from a cheerleader to a striker – but most importantly he was such a dear friend and brother who always wanted to protect me, cheering for me to succeed in life and be happy. We even became business partners for awhile when he then met the love of his life and decided to get married. I’ll never forget the light in his eyes when he spoke Bunga, how he was so in love and his excitement to propose. Ashraf was truly a person with pure heart of gold who only had empathy for others with immense positivity that would light up the whole room. Remembering him as someone who loved to laugh, loves his family, friends, his work, helping others and making people happy. And for that, I will miss him and our conversations dearly. I am forever grateful for our friendship and the fact that you managed to see get married. My heart bleeds for Bunga, Noah, Pak Mat, Ummi, Adam, Aisyah, Yuna and the entire family. My pain is only a fraction compared to what each of them are going through – especially Bunga. The memories of you two loving each other just makes me cry. I took comfort knowing that Allah SWT loves our Ashraf more than we all do and that he is at peace. I pray for you Husnul Khatimah and may Allah SWT grant you a beautiful place in Jannah.. Amin. To Bunga sayang, I wish to give u space at this most trying time of your life surrounded by your beloved family – away from your phone. Reaching out to you in a few days. I pray that may Allah SWT always bless you with HIS strength, rest-assured that you and Noah will always be watched over. Al Fatihah. 💐
