For the unversed, Bhatia was admitted to Hiranandani Hospital in Mumbai in critical condition a few days back. Upon hearing this, the superstar had flown in from the United Kingdom, where he was shooting for Cinderella, a remake of Ratsasan. Calling her his "core," the 54-year-old had written how he felt "an unbearable pain at the very core of my existence" upon losing her.

Condolences: 'So sorry for your loss,' Emraan Hashmi had written

As soon as the news was shared, Kumar's friends reached out to offer their condolences. "Dear Akki, Heartfelt condolences on your mother's passing away. May Arunaji's soul find eternal peace. Condolences to you & your family," Ajay Devgn had written. Emraan Hashmi had said, "So sorry for your loss." Similar messages came from Pankaj Tripathi, Renuka Shahane, Hansal Mehta, Pooja Bhatt, and Ali Asgar.

Work: Meanwhile, Kumar has 'Raksha Bandhan', 'Atrangi Re', 'Bachchan Pandey' coming
