Alia Bhatt’s maternal grandfather is no more. Narendra Nath Razdan, aged 93, passed away on June 1 after critical health. He was admitted to Breach Candy Hospital due to lung infection. Alia Bhatt penned an emotional note on her grandfather’s demise. She wrote,
“My grandpa. My hero,
Played golf till 93
Worked till 93
Made the best omelette
Told the best stories
Played the violin
Played with his great granddaughter
Loved his cricket
Loved his sketching
Loved his family
& till the very last moment.. loved his life!
My heart is full of sorrow but also full of joy .. because all my grandpa did is give us joy & for that feel blessed and grateful to have been brought up by all the light he had to give!
Until we meet again”
Karan Johar commented, “Sending you a massive hug”
Alia Bhatt’s mother Soni Razdan wrote in her Instagram post, “Daddy, grandpa, Nindi – our Angel here on earth. We are so thankful to have called you ours. So grateful to have lived a life basking in your incandescent glow. So blessed to have been touched by your kind, loving, gentle and always vibrant soul. You have taken a piece of us with you but we will never be parted with your spirit. It inhabits us all and will remind us always of what it truly means to be alive. Wherever you are – it’s now a happier place because of that beautiful laugh of yours. We love you our silly, beautiful, funny boy – until we meet again.”
Narendra Nath Razdan wasn’t keeping well for some time. Alia Bhatt even skipped going to IIFA 2023 due to his critical health.
