Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixits father, Shankar R Dixit, died on Friday morning after a prolonged illness. He was 91.
Apparently, the doctors had informed the family yesterday that his health has taken a turn for the worse.
“We’ll miss him but we know he lived a full life. We thank all those who have offered their condolences and prayers,” Madhuri said. The funeral was at 12.30 p.m at a crematorium in Oshiwada.
Madhuri was scheduled to shoot the season finale of the Jhalak Dikhla Jaa, which will have its finale this weekend. She will now understandably not be able to do so.
According to Sources Priyanka Chopra was set to fill in for Madhuri as a judge for Thursday’s shoot of the JDJ, but since Mads was present producers went ahead with the actress.
