Rakhi Sawant’s mother Jaya Sawant passed away at a hospital in Mumbai yesterday after battling cancer.

The video also momentarily showed Jaya struggling on the hospital bed. Rakhi wrote in the caption, “Aaj meri maa ka haat sar se uth gaya or mere pass khone ke liye kuch nahi bacha. I love you MAA. Aap ke bina kuch nahi raha, ab kaun meri pukar sunega or kaun mujhe gale lagayega maa. Ab mai kya karu… kaha jauuuu… I miss you Aai (today my mother’s hand was lifted from head. And I have nothing left to lose. I love you mother. Nothing is left without you, now who will listen to me and who will hug me. What should I do now, where should I go. I miss you, mother).”
Meanwhile, in a paparazzi video, Rakhi Sawant broke down while her family members tried to console her. She can be repeatedly heard saying, “My mother has left me”, “where is Adil (her husband Adil Khan Durrani)?'” “Bhai(brother??)”.
