Actor Akshay Kumar returned to Mumbai early Monday morning from the United Kingdom to meet his sick mother, Aruna Bhatia.
“The actor’s mom has been unwell for a few days and is in the ICU at Mumbai’s Hiranandani Hospital. Akshay is extremely attached to his mother and could not stay away from her while she’s not well, so he decided to fly back to India in a sudden decision.”
The actor was filming for a forthcoming film since a couple of weeks, tentatively titled Cinderella, produced by Vashu Bhagnani.
“Even as he has flown back to be with mom, he has told his producers to carry on shooting with scenes that do not require his presence. All other work commitments of his also continue. He has always believed that work must go on, despite any personal challenges,” the source adds.
‘Prithviraj,’ ‘Atrangi Re,’ ‘Bachchan Pandey,’ and ‘Sooryavanshi’ are among Akshay’s next films.
