Gurgaon: Cancer patient Aruna PK, whose last wish to meet Bollywood heartthrob Shah Rukh Khan died on Tuesday here. Unfortunately, her last wish of meeting the star could not be fulfilled.
But, the silver lining in her life was the video message for her on Twitter posted by Shahrukh Khan on October 21 through his fan page, SRK Universe, praying for her speedy recovery.
“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 me, my whole family, all our friends whoever knows about you, we are praying for your wellness,” said Shah Rukh in the video.
He wanted to have a telephonic conversation with the patient but her deteriorating condition did not allow it to happen. But he had promised to perform on a favourite song of Aruna whenever they meet.
Shah Rukh Khan expressed his condolences on twitter soon after Aruna's death.
Notably, twiterratti had tightened its belt to make Shahrukh Khan meet Aruna after she posted her wish on twitter. A sketch of Aruna with King Khan, hashtag #SRKMeetsAruna along with her smiling face on hospital bed trended on social media. As Shahrukh Khan was tagged in the tweets, Aruna’s condition came under his notice and he promptly uploaded a video message wishing for her speedy recovery.
In March this year, while celebrating six years of being a cancer survivor, Aruna had tweeted out: “I am full of gratitude to Doctors, family and friends and last but not least @iamsrk for being source of strength he doesn’t even know he is.”It is worth mentioning that her thread of tweets about why she likes people of different States in India went viral in July on social media
