Rajkummar Rao’s father Satyapal Yadav passes away at 60

Rajkummar Rao’s father Satyapal Yadav breathed his last on Thursday (September 5). He was 60 and was keeping unwell for some days. For the past 17 days, Satyapal Yadav was admitted to Medanta hospital.

He was cremated at the Madan Puri cremation ground, Gurugram at 10am on Friday morning in the presence of close family members and friends. Satyapal Yadav was a government employee, who worked in the revenue department.

Rajkummar lost his mother in 2017, while he was shooting for ‘Newton’. The actor returned to the shoot just a day after his mother's death.

"I returned in a day's time because I knew that's what my mother would have loved - for me to carry on with my commitments, act and finish my duties. Her greatest happiness in life was to watch me on screen. It was hard for me to perform, but I felt her presence supporting me," Rajkummar had said back then.

In an interview to Indian Express, the actor had spoken about his family’s hardships while growing up. “For two years, my teachers paid my school fees,” he had said. “But no one ever discouraged me from pursuing my dream.”
