Bollywood News & Gossip | Mallika Dua is devastated by the loss of her mother, Dr. Padmavati Dua, who was known to her friends and Instagram followers as ‘Chinna.’ She used Instagram stories to deliver a message to her fans.
Mallika Dua wrote a message on her mother Chinna Dua’s death. She died following a weeks-long battle with Covid-19.
“She left us last night. My whole heart. My whole life. The only god I know. My Amma I’m sorry I couldn’t save you. You fought so hard my mama. My precious. My heart. You’re my whole life,” Mallika Dua wrote. “It’s not about my loss and grief. It’s about a life cut short. I always knew I didn’t deserve her. But she deserved to live. I don’t know if I will ever be able to pray again,” she added.
Chinna Dua had been battling Covid-19 for weeks before passing away on Friday night. On May 15, she announced her diagnosis on Instagram. “Hello, everyone. I started experiencing trouble breathing the day before, on May 13th. My doctor determined that I was experiencing a cytokine storm and needed to be monitored after listening to my voice. On 13.5.21, we were admitted to St Stephen’s Hospital, but my health worsened, necessitating admission to the ICU, which was not available. We were admitted to Medanta last night. Vinod is on 5 liters of intermittent oxygen in the room. I’m on 15 liters and out of breath. It may take some time for me to get back on my feet. All kind thoughts, blessings, and prayers are greatly appreciated. Always may God bless you all. Remain careful, stay at home, and get well soon.
Malika Dua posted an adorable throwback photo with her mother on Instagram on Mother’s day. She captioned the photo as, “Happy Mother’s Day my cute girl @chinnadua, please get well soon? The monkeys on the balcony are waiting for you. Plus I miss throwing tantrums.
