Amrit Kapai's grandmother Koshlya has passed away, the Family Karma cast member shared in a post on Instagram on July 29.

Amrit confirmed his grandmother, whom he affectionately refers to as Nani, passed away on Thursday morning. He then paid tribute to Nani and opened up about how much she means to him. "You are the Goliath that I will always love and remember. Even this last chapter of your incredible life will have a lasting impact on so many people," Amrit wrote in the post, which also featured memories of his grandmother. "We will celebrate you, your love, and your kindness for years to come."

He ended the message, "Rest peacefully, my angel. I hope I never caused you any sadness."

Amrit and his family received an outpouring of love and support from fans and his Family Karma castmates alike in the comments of his Instagram post:

"You brought her nothing but joy and then made her everyone’s Nani. And she is now your forever angel," Bali Chainani wrote. "Love you."

"So sorry brother," Vishal Parvani shared with his longtime BFF. "Nani was the strongest woman."

"What an incredible matriarch," Shaan Patel shared. "She lived an incredible and loving life."

Brian Benni wrote, "I love you brother, she was such a loving soul."

"Nani was such a beautiful person and lived such an amazing full life," Monica Vaswani shared. "She’ll always be remembered for her big heart and love for you."

Amrit memorably came out to Nani during an incredibly powerful and moving moment in Season 2 of Family Karma, which just aired its season finale on July 28. Nani showed her support for Amrit and his decision to take the next step in his relationship with boyfriend Nicholas Kouchoukos as she later met up with the couple this season.

In an interview with The Daily Dish podcast in June, Amrit opened up about why it was so important for him to come out to Nani. "I have so much love for her, and I have so much respect for her," Amrit explained, adding that Nani was "the matriarch of the family" who not only raised four children of her own but also six grandchildren, and he didn't want to continue "keeping her in the dark." "I wanted to show her that, like, this is how much you mean to me. I want to be honest about who I am." 

A few weeks later, Amrit reflected on this season with his family. "It has taken me some time to process the heart-wrenching moments with my family we’ve all watched on TV. Hearing things out loud that have been in my head for as far back as I can remember. Hearing things out loud that I suspected were in the minds of those I love more than life itself," Amrit wrote in a post on Instagram on July 8. "But, at the end of the day, I am not sad. I am so proud. Proud of my Nani, proud of my parents, proud of my family, and proud of every one of you who has reached out and opened up to me about your struggle, whatever that struggle may be. Life is about facing tribulations, overcoming them, and then taking as much time as you need to heal. You are loved."

He ended his message by continuing to show his love to his grandmother. "Nani, the twinkle in your eyes, your soft touch, your gentle tone, and your smile fix everything for me," Amrit shared. "I love you.
