Following the death of P Khurrana, Ayushmann and Aparshakti released a statement. The official statement from the family reads, “It’s with our deep sadness to inform that Ayushmann and Aparshakti Khurana’s father, Astrologer P Khurrana passed away this this morning at 10.30 am in Mohali, owing to a prolonged incurable ailment. We are indebted for all your prayers and support during this time of personal loss.”
For the uninitiated, P Khurrana was a very popular astrologer in North India. Ayushmann was very close to his father. In 2020, Ayushmann had wished his father on birthday. His post was captioned, “Happy bday to the world’s best father! You gave me the wings, talent and ambition. I won’t tell your age to the world. Coz they won’t believe it. Jai Jai (that’s what we say when we do charan sparsh)”
In 2021, Aparshakti shared a video of his father playing a flute on his Instagram. His caption read, “Jamming all the stress away with papa who has been a HUGE Dev Anand fan. 100 Yaad Kiya Dil Ne Kahan Ho Tum is even more special because it’s sung by the legends, Hemant Kumar Saab and Lata Mangeshkar ji. Hope you like it. P.S – clearly we get our music from him @astrologer.pkhurrana.”
