Aruna's son Akshat Khot announced of her demise on Twitter with a heartwarming message. He wrote, "Even God needs happiness in times of chaos. May the purest and happiest soul of Maa @Arunapk57 Rest in Peace. Thank you everyone."

Twitter made sure that the word reaches the 'Dilwale' actor by tweeting to the actor requesting him to meet Aruna PK.

Aruna Khot was 60 and had been battling cancer for six years.

Earlier Akshat had requested Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan to fulfil her last wish of meeting him. Talking about Aruna's wish, Shah Rukh Khan had said, "You are in a state where meeting you is perhaps not a possibility. I know this for a fact, with the positivity that you carry around that you will get well soon and we will meet very soon."

Shah Rukh Khan had sent a video message to Aruna, who had expressed her desire to meet the actor over social media. Shah Rukh got to know about Aruna's wish through her children Akshat and Priyanka. He later took to social media to send a message to Aruna through his fan page.

Aruna's wish had first come to the actor's notice when well-wishers of the cancer patient united to start a Twitter campaign titled #SRKmeetsAruna by reportedly sharing images of the 60-year-old on a hospital bed.

Earlier, he had taken to social media to send a video message to Aruna.

"I'm made to understand through your son Akshat and daughter Priyanka that you are fighting with an illness. I want to say this that I, my whole family, all our friends whoever knows you, we are praying for your wellness," he had said.

Shah Rukh had promised Aruna that he would meet her soon and will also perform for her.

"You are in a state where meeting you is perhaps not a possibility. I know this for a fact, with the positivity that you carry around that you will get well soon and we will meet very soon," he had said.

Condolences poured in from all quarters and some even thanked Shah Rukh Khan for helping her fulfil her last wish.
