Alongside the video and pictures, Bhargava wrote an emotional note as she bid a final adieu to Pandit Birju Maharaj. She also mentioned how her daughter Mehr called him ‘Bade Nanu’ and became a follower at such a young age already.

Her note read, “Aap The, Aap Hain, Aap Hamesha Rahenge! Aapki Chhoti Munmun ko aapki godh mein khilane ki khwahish to adhoori reh gayi! Par iss baat ki tassalli hai, Ki woh jaanti hai ki ‘Bade Nanu’ kaun hain aur unhe video call par dekhte hi…. Paaye Lagoo,Radhe Radhe! Bolte hain Blessed to be Blessed and Loved By God Himself! Maharaj Ji ”
