Popular Bollywood singer Shaan’s mother Sonali Mukherjee has passed away on Thursday. His fellow singer Kailash Kher confirmed the sad news on his Twitter handle and prayed for the family to bear this irreplaceable loss. The cause of her death is not known yet. Sonali Mukherjee was also a singer. Ever since this sad news broke out, heartfelt tributes started pouring in from Bollywood celebrities, and Shaan’s near and dear ones.
While offering his condolences, Kailash tweeted in Hindi, “Elder brother Shaan’s mother passed away. Prayers to the Almighty for the salvation of the departed soul. It is a prayer to Lord Shiva, the ruler of all the three worlds, that our Shaan Bhaiya’s family should get the strength to bear this sorrow. Eternal Prayer.”
Shaan was very close to his mother Sonali Mukherjee and has often expressed his undying love for her in interviews. In an earlier interview with Hindustan Times, he called his mother ‘sole reason’ for taking his chances and pursuing a career in music. He also shared how she single-handedly brought up him and his sister Sagarika after the death of their father.
Shaan had said, “My mother (Sonali Mukherjee) is probably the sole reason that I could take my chances, not take up a day job, and pursue a career as a singer. She raised my sister, Sagarika, and me, single-handedly, after my father passed away in 1986. I was just 14 then. She used to be a chorus singer for film songs from 1970 to 2000.”
