Ranveer Singh’s grandmother passes away

Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh’s grandmother has passed away on Sunday night. The actor’s grandmother had been ill for quite a while with even Deepika Padukone paying her a visit in hospital in January.

Ranveer, who shared a close bond with his grandmother, has cancelled the Switzerland Tourism press conference after the unfortunate news. The event was scheduled at 1:30 pm today at Taj Lands End.

The funeral for the actor’s grandmother was held early this morning, according to sources. Ranveer Singh’s partner and actor Deepika Padukone visited the family and was present for the last rites as well. The actor was there for the grieving family for a couple of hours and left the place a while ago. 

The Padmaavat actor shared a close bond with his grandmother and had earlier spoken to Grazia about it. He had said,

“As important to me as oxygen and water. I am very affectionate with everybody – my fans, my family. I was raised that way. My grandmother mollycoddled me. There was lots of hugging and kissing in my house. My earliest food memory is my grandmother’s cooking, especially on special days like Diwali. The memories of warmth, happiness and kinship, of sharing and eating around a big table…”
