Raveena had penned an emotional note on Instagram after his death in 2022. She shared a bunch of throwback pictures with him and wrote in the caption: “You will always walk with me , I will always be you, I’m never letting go. Love you papa.”

Last year when Raveena was conferred with the Padma Shri, she remembered her father and told Hindustan Times, “I did get the honour, but unfortunately, he is not here to see it. So, getting the honour was mixed emotions for me. It came with a bit of happiness and a bit of more happiness. More happiness was when I was thinking about him and saying (to myself) that at least, I fulfilled my dad’s dream”.

Raveena was last seen in the show Karmma Calling, which released on Disney plus Hotstar on January 26.
