Actor Akshay Kumar returned to Mumbai from the United Kingdom on Monday after learning of his mother Aruna Bhatia’s illness. His mother is currently undergoing treatment at Mumbai’s Hiranandani Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.

When Akshay Kumar was filming “Bell Bottom” in London last year, he shared a heartfelt message about spending time with his mother.  He wrote,“‪Juggled shoot to spend a few days with mom in London. No matter how busy you are with life and growing up, don’t forget they are also growing old…so spend time with them while you still can.”

For the unversed, Akshay was shooting for a new film in the UK for the past couple of weeks.

Also, the `Pad Man’ star has reportedly told his producers to carry on shooting with scenes that do not require his presence.

He was last seen in the spy thriller `BellBottom`, which also starred Lara Dutta Bhupathi, Vaani Kapoor and Huma S Qureshi. The film was the first major Hindi movie to release in theatres after the second wave of COVID-19
