The hardest thing to go through is losing your mother. Madhuri Dixit is also going through a difficult moment as well because she lost her mother Snehalata Dixit on March 12 on Sunday. She passed away at her home in Mumbai at the age of 91. It has not yet been discovered what caused her death.
Today at around 3:00 pm, Snehalata Dixit's funeral ceremonies will take place in the Worli crematorium. Madhuri Dixit and her husband Shriram Nene announced the sad news in a joint statement. The statement read, "Our beloved Aai, Snehalata Dikshit, passed away peacefully this morning surrounded by her loved ones."
Madhuri Dixit wrote a sweet birthday message for her mother last year on the occasion of her 90th birthday. Sharing some unseen photos, the actress wrote, "Happy Birthday, Aai! They say a mother is a daughter’s befriend. 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 & happiness (sic)."
2013 saw Madhuri's mother record a song with her for "Gulaab Gang". Narrating the incident, filmmaker Anubhav Sinha told IANS, “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.”
