Actor Akshay Kumar’s mother Aruna Bhatia passed away on Wednesday morning. He took to Twitter to share the news and expressed his grief.
“She was my heart. Today I feel unbearable pain at the core of my being. Mai Smit Aruna Bhatia peacefully left this world this morning and met my father in the other world. I respect your prayers as I and my family are going through this period. Om Shanti,” he wrote.
On Tuesday, Akshay said it was a “difficult hour” for his family and asked fans to pray for his mother. “I am touched beyond words in your concern for my mother’s health. This is a very difficult hour for me and my family. Every prayer for you will greatly help,” he wrote on Twitter.
