Legendary singer Mukesh’s wife passes away

An ‘Ira’ ended when Hrithik Roshan‘s grandmom, the legendary music composer Roshan’s wife Ira Roshan passed away a couple of years ago. And now, Roshan’s best friend the late singer Mukesh’s wife, Saral Mukesh, also passed away on Monday. Neil Mukesh Mathur who was very close to his grandmother was inconsolable. “I spent a lot of time with my grandmother who lived in the same building as my parents and me. While we occupy the first floor, Dadee stayed on the seventh floor. As a child, I’d look forward to weekends. Every Friday my sister and I would rush to her floor. And since there was no school on Saturday and Sunday we were allowed to sleep with her. She would tell us so many stories about my grandfather, his friendship with Raj Uncle (Raj Kapoor). I’d stare at the pictures of my grandfather and Raj Uncle and at the Filmfare trophies lined up on her shelf, hoping that one day I’d get one too. It’s strange but I danced at the Filmfare award for the first time just two days before Dadee died.”
