Actor Akshay Kumar's mother Aruna Bhatia passed away on September 8, two days after she was admitted to a hospital in Mumbai.
Akshay was in the United Kingdom, shooting for his upcoming film Cinderella, when he had to return to India earlier this week.
He had cut short his shoot schedule in UK to be with his ailing mother.
Akshay himself took to his social media accounts in the morning and shared the news of his mother's demise.
Paying an emotional tribute to her, Akshay wrote,
"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.''
Akshay along with his wife Twinkle Khanna and daughter Nitara were photographed at Aruna's funeral. The family was joined by Twinkle's mother Dimple Kapadia, filmmakers Rohit Shetty and Sajid Khan, actors Riteish Deshmukh and Karan Kapadia and producer Ramesh Taurani among others.
Notably, hours after his mother Aruna Bhatia's funeral took place, Akshay Kumar also made his way to attend the funeral of director Aanand L Rai's mother.
The filmmaker's mother also reportedly died on Wednesday morning. The cause of death is still unknown.
Akshay and Aanand are working together on a couple of projects. While Akahsy wrapped the filming of Aanand L Rai's Atrangi Re, with Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush, earlier this year the actor-director duo has Raksha Bandhan in the making.
