Akshay Kumar, who returned back to London with his wife Twinkle Khanna and daughter Nitara on Sunday, lost his mother Aruna Bhatia recently. Soon after the news of his mother’s demise broke, social media was flooded with condolences messages from his fans and friends from the industry. Amongst everyone, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi also penned a long note and offered condolences to Akshay and his family.

The actor took to social media and shared PM Modi’s letter. He even thanked him for his ‘amazing gesture’ that he took out time and expressed his thoughts.

Sharing the letter on his Instagram handle, Akshay wrote, “Humbled by condolence messages on mom’s passing, thankful to all🙏🏻Grateful to hon’ble PM for this amazing gesture to take out time and express warm feelings for me and my late parents. These comforting words will stay with me forever. Jai Ambe.”

PM Modi’s letter read, “My dear Akshay, It was best if I would never have written such a letter. In an ideal world, such a time should never have come. I was saddened by the demise of your Mother, Smt. Aruna Bhatia. When I spoke to you that fateful morning, you were crestfallen and you encapsulated it emotionally when you wrote, “She was my core. And today I feel an unbreakable pain at the very core of my existence.” You tasted success after much hard work and struggle. You have built a name and achieved fame for yourself through your determination and tenacity. Through your journey, you retained the right values and moral strength due to which you could easily turn adversities into opportunities. And these learnings came from your parents. When you began your career, I am sure people on the way would have been sceptical, even outright condescending. But, your Mother stood with you like a rock. At the peak of success and the lows of failure, she was there as an anchor. She ensured you remained kind, compassionate and humble at all times. She also instilled a spirit of service in you, seen repeatedly through your philanthropic initiatives and eagerness to give back to society. What is heartening is that during her life, she saw you scale new heights of success and stardom. The manner in which you took care of her is deeply inspiring. She left the world knowing fully well that her beloved son is one of India’s most admired and versatile actors. In such times of grief, words seldom do justice. Preserve her memories and legacy, and keep making her proud. In this tragic hour, my thoughts are with you and your family. Om Shanti.”

Akshay had tweeted and informed about his mother’s unfortunate demise. He had tweeted, “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 is currently shooting for ‘Cinderella’ which is being directed by Ranjit Tewari in London.
