Akshay Kumar’s mother Aruna Bhatia left for a heavenly abode this morning. The actor had left his shoot schedule in the morning and had returned because of his mother deteriorating health condition. His ailing mother was admitted to the ICU of Mumbai’s Hiranandani hospital.

Earlier this morning, Akshay Kumar took to his IG handle to share the tragic news of his mother’s demise and wrote, “She was my core. And today, I feel an unbearable pain at the 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.”

A few moments back, Akshay Kumar and his wife, Twinkle Khanna arrived for the last rites of his mother, Aruna Bhatia. An emotional Twinkle was seen teary-eyed, while Akshay was seen grief-stricken. Their daughter, Nitara too was seen at the last rites of her grandmother. Bollywood celebs like Rohit Shetty, R Balki, Bhushan Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Ramesh Taurani and Sajid Khan arrived for paying last respects to the departed soul.

We wish the family finds the strength to overcome this unbearable loss.
