Kailash Kher tweeted in Hindi that is translated as, “Elder brother Shaan’s mother passed away. Prayers to the Almighty for the salvation of the departed soul. It is a prayer to Lord Shiva, the ruler of all the three worlds, that our Shaan Bhaiya’s family should get the strength to bear this sorrow. Eternal Prayer”.

Earlier in an interview with Hindustan Times, Shaan had spoken about his mother. He said, “My mother (Sonali Mukherjee) is probably the sole reason that I could take my chances, not take up a day job, and pursue a career as a singer. She raised my sister, Sagarika, and me, single-handedly, after my father passed away in 1986. I was just 14 then. She used to be a chorus singer for film songs from 1970 to 2000.”
