      Sushma Swaraj's Sudden Demise: Adnan Sami Pens Heartfelt Note; Recalls Her As 'Motherly Figure'


      The sudden demise of former External Affairs Minister and senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj has come across as a shocker for the whole nation. She breathed her last after suffering a heart attack on Tuesday night. She was 67.

      As soon as the news broke in, many Bollywood celebrities took to Twitter to offer their condolences. Amongst them was singer Adnan Sami, who penned a heartfelt note to express his grief.


      Calling Sushma Swaraj a motherly figure, the singer tweeted, "My family & I are in complete shock to learn the tragic news of dear Sushma ji's sudden demise. She was a motherly figure for all of us; an extremely respected stateswoman; exceptional orator & a very loving, caring & warm soul. Will miss her dearly. #sushmaswaraj #RIPSushmaJi." (sic)

      He even shared a few pictures of his family's meet-and-greet with her. Have a look at his tweet here.

      Back in May 2015, Adnan had applied for Indian citizenship after his Pakistani passport got expired. Sushma Swaraj, who then served as the Indian Minister of External Affairs under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, apparently helped him to get Indian citizenship.
