Ananya Panday’s grandmother, and mother of actor Chunky Panday, Snehlata Panday passed away on Saturday (July 10) at the age of 85 after a prolonged illness. The young star took to her social media to share an emotional post about her late grandmother.
Sharing a childhood pic of her with her ‘dadi’, Ananya posted: “rest in power, my angel ❤️ when she was born the doctors said she wouldn’t live beyond a few years because of a defected heart valve, but my Dadi lived and how. She worked every day up until the age of 85, going to work at 7 am in her block heels and red streaked hair. She inspired me every single day to do what I love and I’m so grateful to have grown up basking in her energy and light. She had the softest hands to hold, gave the best leg massages, she was a self proclaimed (and very politically incorrect) palm reader and never ever failed to make me laugh. The life of our family. You’re too loved to ever be forgotten Dadi – I love you so much.”
Celebrities including Ishaan Khatter, Karisma Kapoor with her daughter Samaira, Navya Naveli Nanda, Malaika Arora and Amrita Arora Ladak, amongst others visited the Panday residence, to pay their condolences.
