Actor Akshay Kumar posted a video of himself on Instagram, revealing that he was missing his late mother Aruna Bhatia. In the 20 second video, Akshay was seen staring into the abyss, without any words. In the background, religious music, Namastasye Namo Namah was playing.
Akshay captioned the video, “Yunhe aaj ma bohot yaad aa rahi hai (Today I am missing my mother a lot). Akshay Kumar lost his mother recently, on September 8 this year.
In a post informing about the same the actor said, “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.”
Reportedly, Adhuna Bhatia was unwell and was admitted to Hiranandani Hospital. Akshay Kumar took a break from work as at the time he was in the UK, shooting for a film, and returned to Mumbai to be with her. A day prior to her death Akshay thanked all his fans and supporters who sent prayers for his mother. He wrote on Twitter, “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.”
In an old interview, Akshay had said that his relationship with his mother is strong and yet gentle. He said that nothing could come between a son and his mother and no distance could stop him from letting his mother know that he amounts to nothing without her.
