Noted singer Monali Thakur’s father Shakti Thakur breathed his last on Sunday. He was unwell for quite sometime and suffered a massive cardiac attack. Celebrities paid heartfelt tribute to the departed soul.

Remembering her father, the singer shared an emotional note on Instagram on Monday. Sharing a couple of pictures with her father, Monali wrote, "Sri Sakti Thakur... my father, my all.. the core of my existence, my biggest critic and cheerleader and my teacher.. the Angelic hand above my head... amar Baba... physically left us yesterday... I had never seen a more kind hearted and a more humble person in my life... not jack of all trades but truly master of many... his humility surprised me throughout my life... a brain too efficient for others to catch up to him."

I am a heartbroken but an immensely proud daughter, Baba... And I will make you proud with everything I do in life.. I will continue following your steps and will only spread love... I am and always will be forever grateful to you for your priceless, unparalleled Love that you gave me... And I know there is no one else on earth who can love me the way you have loved me and you still do... even while leaving you gave us no trouble... you went away like a king!" she added.

Chhotu will be strong for you, Baba! Amar Pronam tomake... mother nature kept my prayers and didn't make you suffer... you went peacefully... because Almighty takes care of such rare beautiful souls like you...#lost #my #lifeline my #hero #my #father #heartattack #dont #know #how #to #bear #the #pain."
