Bollywood actress Madhuri Dixit's mother Snehalata Dixist passed away on Sunday at the age of 91 in Mumbai. Her cremation will reportedly take place at the Worli crematorium at 3 pm.
"Our beloved Aai, Snehalata Dixit, passed away peacefully this morning surrounded by her loved ones," read a joint statement by Madhuri Dixit and her husband Shriram Nene.
Madhuri always used to address her mother as 'aai' and posts pictures with her in the social media.
A heartfelt note was penned by Madhuri during her mother's birthday last year.
"Happy Birthday, Aai! They say a mother is a daughter's bestfriend. They couldn't be any more right. From everything that you've done for me, the lessons that you've taught have been the biggest gift for me from you. I wish you only good health and happiness," read the post.
On Mothers Day, Madhuri has posted her picture with her mother and two sisters.
Filmaker Anubhav Sinha narrated an incident back in 2013 when her mother had joined to record a song for 'Gulab Gang'.
"When we approached Madhuri to sing a song in the film, she happily agreed to do so. When she came for the recording, she came with her mom and we discovered her mom is a very good singer. So we asked her mom if she could sing a song. Eventually, we got both Madhuri and her mom to sing a song in the film," Sinha told IANS.
