Snehalata Dixit, mother of Madhuri Dixit passed away today
Madhuri Dixit and her husband Shriram Nene reportedly announced in a joint statement: “Our beloved Aai Snehalata Dikshit passed away peacefully this morning surrounded by her loved ones.”
Madhuri’s mother had collaborated with her to record a song for gulab gang in 2013. Anubhav Sinha, the director, described the meeting to IANS, saying, “When we approached Madhuri to sing a song in the film, she happily agreed. When she came for the recording, she came with her mom and we found out that her mom is a very good singer. So we asked her mom if she could sing a song. Eventually, we managed to get both Madhuri and her mother to sing a song in the movie.”
In an interview with ETimes last year, Madhuri recalled how her mother Snehlata Dixit’s treatment of her remained the same even after she rose to fame and fortune as an actress. She said: “I mean, even when I was working on movies, my mom used to scold me if my room was messy and stuff like that. This is how they raised me. And so I am. When I go home, everything goes back to the studio. I see my kids and I see my husband and it’s just a different life. I never really lost myself.”
Last year, Madhuri Dixit posted a heartfelt message on social media in honor of her mother’s 90th birthday. Sharing photos of her mother, she wrote, “Happy birthday Aai! They say that a mother is a daughter’s best friend. They couldn’t be more right. Of everything you have done for me, the lessons you have taught me have been the greatest gift you have given me. I wish you only good health and happiness!”
