On Wednesday morning, actor Akshay Kumar’s mother Aruna Bhatia took her last breath at Hiranandani hospital in Mumbai. The actor expressed his grief by tweeting, “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.
A day before Akshay had tweeted that ‘This is a tough time for me and my family in regards to her mother’s deteriorating health condition. Aruna Bhatia was admitted to Hiranandani’s ICU ward in Mumbai. “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,” Akshay wrote on Twitter earlier.
Akshay was in UK, shooting for his upcoming film Cinderella. The actor immediately flew down to India from the UK, after learning about his mother’s health and also told his team to continue shooting for the parts which do not require him, “The actor’s mom has been unwell for a few days and is in the ICU at Mumbai’s Hiranandani Hospital. Akshay is extremely attached to his mother and could not stay away from her while she’s not well, so he decided to fly back to India in a sudden decision. Even as he has flown back to be with mom, he has told his producers to carry on shooting with scenes that do not require his presence. All other work commitments of his also continue,” a source told to Hindustan Times.
