After battling prolonged illness, Madhuri Dixit-Nene‘s father, Mr. Shankar Dixit finally took his last breath on September 13th, 2013.
The Dixit family was made aware of his worsening conditions as doctors had already informed them of the circumstances earlier in the week. With Madhuri being busy shooting for the dance reality show, Jhalak Dhikla Ja Season 6, it was a difficult situation for both the channel and the family.
Colors and the makers of the show graciously considered the circumstances and allowed Madhuri Dixit to be excused from the finale. She was replaced by Actress-Singer Priyanka Chopra for the remainder of the finale. Our condolences lie with the grieving Dixit family.
