Singer Shaan on Thursday took to social media to announce his mother Sonali Mukherjee had passed away in her sleep. Several top names from Bollywood including actor Tiger Shroff and singer Kailash Kher have paid moving tributes to Shaan’s mother.
49-year-old Shaan shared a statement from his family on Instagram.
“We are deeply saddened and heartbroken by the demise of our mother Mrs Sonali Mukherjee. She passed away peacefully in her sleep,” the statement, which was also signed by Shaan’s wife Radhika, sister Sagarika and her husband Martin.
Describing his mother as a ‘kind soul, great human being and a loving mother,’ the statement from Shaan family read, “It is a huge loss for us all. While we try and say our last goodbyes, we would like you to keep COVID restrictions in mind and humbly request you to keep her in your prayers.”
This was after singer Kailash Kher broke the news as he wrote on Twitter in Hindi, “Elder brother Shaan’s mother passed away. Prayers to the Almighty for the departed soul. It is a prayer to Lord Shiva, the ruler of all the three worlds, that our brother Shaan’s family should get the strength to bear this sorrow.”
