Ali Fazal's grandfather died on Saturday. Last night, the actor mourned the loss of his grandfather on social media. Ali Fazal posted a few throwback pictures with his grandfather on the platform and wrote an emotional note as he bids farewell to him. In his note, the Mirzapur actor remembered how his grandfather took care of him. "He fathered me. He took me in from when I can remember because my parents were living separate lives. While my father was out somewhere in the Middle-East, it was Nana who smothered me with love," read an excerpt from Ali Fazal's post.
Informing his Instafam about the loss, Ali Fazal shared that his grandfather died in less than a year of his mother's death. "I suppose this is the will," he wrote. "As I bid him farewell, I say goodbye to another version of me again," the actor added. Ali Fazal also shared his grandfather wanted him to "crack a joke on his funeral." He wrote, "I left a small chit in the grave that said: say cheese..."
