Actress Shraddha Kapoor feels times spent with grandparents are like "treasures" in life.
The "ABCD 2" star lost her maternal grandfather Pandit Pandharinath Kolhapure recently.
"Grand parents are the real treasures of our lives. And when they go... They make sure they leave behind a part of themselves, in you. I feel so blessed to have spent so many years, growing up, with them. The memories will always be the most special treasures... Forever.
"And for all the lucky ones out there who still have their nana-nanis, dada-dadis, give them your time," Shraddha, 26, posted on Twitter.
The actress' grandfather, who died last weekend, was a renowned classical singer.
"My beloved nana, Pandit Pandharinath Kolhapure, passed away very peacefully a few days ago. He spread magic through his music & greatness. Thank you all for your wishes and messages. Him and my nani taught our family the meaning of being rooted and together," she added.
