Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit‘s father, Shankar R Dixit, died this morning after prolonged illness. He was 91.
Shankar’s condition began to deteriorate Thursday night onward and his family was by his side when he breathed his last.
“We’ll miss him but we know he lived a full life. We thank all those who have offered their condolences and prayers,” Madhuri said in a statement.
The 46-year-old actress currently judges dance reality show ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’, which will have its finale this weekend.
Madhuri was scheduled to shoot the season finale of the show. She will now understandably not be able to do so.
Sources reveal that Priyanka Chopra was set to fill in for Madhuri as a judge for Thursday’s shoot of the JDJ, but since Mads was present producers went ahead with the actress.
