On Monday, a source close to Akshay told Hindustan Times,
The actor's mom has been unwell for a few days and is in the ICU at Mumbai's Hiranandani Hospital. Akshay is extremely attached to his mother and could not stay away from her while she's not well, so he decided to fly back to India in a sudden decision.

The bond between a mother and her son is so strong yet so gentle...nothing could come between us, no amount of miles or continents can keep us from letting each other know every day that I would be nothing and no one without her.- Akshay Kumar
We pray for Aruna Ji's departed soul to rest in peace and may God give strength to Akshay and his family to bear the loss.
