Kottayam: The mortal remains of Madhu Jyotsna Akhouri, the maternal grandmother of Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra, has been laid to rest at the cemetery of a church in Kottayam.

Akhouri, 94, a freedom fighter, social activist and a former MLA, had breathed her last on June 3 in Mumbai.

As she had expressed her wish to be laid to rest in her home state, Kerala, her body was brought here for the last rites, family sources said.

Priyanka had tweeted, “I will always remember you with that big smile on your face and the shine in your eyes. Rest in peace nani. We love you”.

“Rest in peace Nani”, she said in a tweet on Sunday. Priyanka also shared a photograph of her grandmother in Instagram.

A number of relatives including Priyanka, flew down from Mumbai to perform the last rites yesterday.

Born as Mary in Kavalappara family at Kumarakom here, Madhu Jyotsna Akhouri had gone to Bihar as nurse and later married Dr Akhouri.

Besides Priyanka’s mother Madhu Chopra, she is survived by two other daughters and a son.
