Shabana Azmi’s mother Shaukat Kaifi has passed away at the age of 93.
The news was confirmed by Kaifi’s son-in-law, veteran writer-lyricist, Javed Akhtar. He was cited in various publications saying, “She was 93 and she was having one problem after another. She was admitted to Kokikaben Dhirubai Ambani hospital, for certain days she was in the ICU and then she was out of ICU. It was all age related.”
He added, “Ultimately they brought her home. She wanted to come back to her own room she stayed for a day or two and then passed away. Shabana is in Mumbai.”
The last rites will be held on Saturday afternoon.
