Bollywood actor Sonu Sood’s father Shakti Sagar Sood passes away in Moga, Punjab due to cardiac arrest on Sunday. He was 77. Shakti Sood was suffering from respiratory problems for the past four years, according to the Indian Express report.

Sonu was by his side when his father breathed his last. It is heard that both were conversing when Shakti Sood collapsed on the bed. The actor rushed his father to the hospital where the doctors declared him dead before arrival.

Sonu Sood, who lives in Mumbai, visited his hometown Punjab to participate in the Celebrity Cricket League (CCL) as his team Punjab De Sher had a match in Mohali.

The actor had lost his mother Saroj Sood eight years ago. A source from family told Indian Express, “His father was suffering from respiratory problems since years now and that is why he never agreed to move with Sonu to Mumbai. He preferred staying in Punjab. Following the death of Sonu’s mother almost eight years back, he was living alone. Sonu visited him quite often. Sonu’s sisters Monika and Malvika are married. One is in Punjab while other is married abroad. Cremation will be held on Tuesday after the sisters arrive.”

To fulfill the wish of his mother, Sonu Sood had recently got their ancestral home in Moga revamp.

Sonu, while speaking to friends and relatives at his residence on Monday said, that he ‘was yet to overcome the loss of his mother and now his father’s sudden death has left him shattered.’ “I am shattered. I have nothing to say right now,” said Sonu.

The actor’s wife Sonali and two sons are expected to arrive in Moga for the funeral on Tuesday. Every year on October 4, Sonu visited Moga for the barsi of his mother Saroj Sood.
