Akshay Kumar’s mother Aruna Bhatia is no more. He mourned her death and wrote on Twitter that he feels ‘unbearable pain’.
“She was my core. And today I feel an unbearable pain at the very core of my existence. My maa Smt Aruna Bhatia peacefully left this world today morning and got reunited with my dad in the other world. I respect your prayers as I and my family go through this period. Om Shanti,” he wrote.
On Tuesday, Akshay had said that it was a ‘tough hour’ for his family and asked fans to pray for his mother. “Touched beyond words at your concern for my mom’s health. This is a very tough hour for me and my family. Every single prayer of yours would greatly help,” he wrote on Twitter.
Akshay, who was shooting for his upcoming film Cinderella in the UK, returned to Mumbai on Monday morning to be with his ailing mother. She was said to be unwell for a few days and was admitted to the Hiranandani Hospital.
In 2015, Akshay talked about his relationship with his mother. “The bond between a mother and her son is so strong yet so gentle…nothing could come between us, no amount of miles or continents can keep us from letting each other know every day that I would be nothing and no one without her.”
