New Delhi: Kunal Kemmu penned an emotional and heartfelt note after he lost his maternal grandmother. On Sunday, the Golmaal star took to his social media account and wrote about his memories with his beloved “Maaji”.
“I lost my naani today. We all called her Maaji. She truly earned that name in each one of our lives. She loved us all like a mother and worked so hard to make us all comfortable and happy every time we were in her company,” read Kunal’s Instagram post.
“I have such special and amazing memories of her telling me stories, feeding me, looking after me, buying me things that my parents wouldn’t allow sometimes and always telling me to believe in myself and not get bogged down by anything or anyone,” he wrote.
“My biggest cheerleader always. She lived a full life filled with happiness, joy, laughter, sadness, struggles and pains. She symbolises strength, compassion and love for me. Can’t remember if I ever saw her cry. Always saw her busy with something or the other. Creating things out of nothing and always making sure everyone was looked after and well fed specially me. I will always miss you Maaji,” wrote Kunal.
Kunal also dropped a picture in which his daughter Inaaya is seen sharing an adorable moment with ‘maaji’.
After learning about the unfortunate news, fans and members of the film industry paid their heartfelt condolences to Kunal.
“So sorry for your loss Kunal. Nothing more special than nani. I miss mine everyday but I know she is forever looking down on me just the way maaji will upon you. May her soul rest in peace. Love and strength to you all,” Sophie Choudry commented.
“Sorry for your loss,” Hazel Keech wrote.
