Ananya Panday's grandmother Snehlata Panday passed away on Saturday. Ananya, who was very close to her grandma, took to Instagram and paid tribute to her. She shared a series of childhood photos with her late grandmother and penned a sweet note. She called her grandmom the "life of her family," adding that she is "too loved to ever be forgotten."
The actress wrote, "rest in power, my angel. when she was born the doctors said she wouldn't love beyond a few years because of a defected heart valve, but my Dadi lived and how. She worked every day up until the age of 85, going to work at 7 am in her block heels and red streaked hair. She inspired me every single day to do what I love and I'm so grateful to have grown up basking in her energy and light."
"She had the softest hands to hold, gave the best leg massages, she was a self proclaimed (and very politically incorrect) palm reader and never ever failed to make me laugh. The life of our family. You're too loved to ever be forgotten Dadi - I love you so much," added Ananya. Navya Naveli Nanda, Pulkit Samrat, Maheep Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar, Ishaan Khatter and others dropped heart emojis on the post.
Earlier this year, Ananya had shared a picture with grandmother on the occasion of Women's Day. She wrote, "The epitome of grace, beauty, perseverance, humour, badass energy and boss woman vibes. my Dadi and Nani - happy Women's day to my best.. and happy Women's day to all the lovely ladies out there - you are so very special and everything you need is right inside of you.. I love you guys u rock."
