Madhuri Dixit’s father passes away in the morning

Bollywood actress Madhuri Dixit’s father Shankar Dixit passed away in the morning. He was suffering from old age related disease. He was admitted to hospital few days back after his condition deteriorated. Doctors have apparently informed the family about this worse health condition. He was 91. His family was by his side when he breathed his last. Madhuri said "We'll miss him but we know he lived a full life. We thank all those who have offered their condolences and prayers."

Last year, Madhuri Dixit returned with her husband and two children to settle down in India. She said that she is back to India for her parents as her father is not keeping well. Madhuri Dixit is currently judging the dance show, ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’. Due to her father’s ill healh, the channel has made all the arrangements to release the diva from the show and they have also made alternative arrangements to fill up Madhuri’s place. Priyanka Chopra has been finalized to replace Madhuri and they have also planned to give a tribute to Mads by performing to a medley of her popular numbers.

However, the makers shot the episode with Madhuri as she was present on Thursday shoot.

A source from the show informs, "We were to shoot today also, but it has been called off keeping in mind Madhuri's loss. Half the portion of the finale episode has already been shot and Madhuri may not be there to shoot for the remaining half."

Our deepest condolence to Madhuri and her family!
