Shah Rukh tweeted, “May Allah give you strength to deal with the loss of your beautiful mother. I know how sad it is to deal with the loss of a parent. Know that she is always with you and henceforth do things that give her reasons to smile in heaven.”

Akshat tweeted, “Thank You SRK for giving her happiness in her final moments.”

On his message of condolence, Akshat wrote, “Thank You so much sir. God bless you!”

Aruna’s wish had first come to the actor’s notice when well-wishers of the cancer patient united to start a Twitter campaign titled #SRKmeetsAruna by reportedly sharing images of the 60-year-old on a hospital bed.

Earlier, he had taken to social media to send a video message to Aruna.

Shah Rukh had promised Aruna that he would meet her soon and will also perform for her.

“You are in a state where meeting you is perhaps not a possibility. I know this for a fact, with the positivity that you carry around that you will get well soon and we will meet very soon,” he had said.
