Snehlata Panday's granddaughter and actress Ananya Panday shared an emotional eulogy on Instagram. "Rest in power, my angel. When she was born the doctors said she wouldn't live beyond a few years because of a defected heart valve, but my Dadi lived and how. She worked every day up until the age of 85, going to work at 7 am in her block heels and red streaked hair. She inspired me every single day to do what I love and I'm so grateful to have grown up basking in her energy and light. She had the softest hands to hold, gave the best leg massages, she was a self-proclaimed (and very politically incorrect) palm reader and never ever failed to make me laugh. The life of our family. You're too loved to ever be forgotten Dadi - I love you so much," she wrote.
Alanna Panday, daughter of fitness expert and author Deanne Panday and Chikki Panday (who is the brother of actor Chunky Panday) also shared a post for her late grandmom. "I wish you could read this right now so I could tell you how much I love you- it breaks my heart that I wasn't there to say our last goodbyes or hold your hand when it happened. Rest in peace," an excerpt from her post read.
