Several Bollywood personalities had attended her funeral, as well. Among those seen were Salman Khan’s brother and sister, Arbaaz and Alvira, film directors Abbas-Mustan, and Chunky’s wife, Bhavana.

Phadnis had recently celebrated 25 years in Bollywood with a grand fashion event, attended by Kriti Sanon, Riteish Deshmukh, Sushmita Sen and showstopper Amitabh Bachchan.

Phadnis, who made his directorial debut in 2017 with the Marathi film Hrudayantar, is planning his second film. “I am starting my next film on February 20. I am excited,” Phadnis told IANS recently. “It will be a Marathi film that is subtitled in English. The story that I want to tell the world is about Alzheimer’s and dementia. It’s a story, which I have written, close to my heart.
