Mumbai: Bollywood celebrities including Shahrukh Khan, Vidya Balan, Goldie Behl and the Bachchan family was present at the prayer meet of Aishwarya Rai’s father Krishnaraj Rai, who died on March 18 due to prolonged illness. The Chautha was held at Taj Lands End in Bandra on March 21, where little Aaradhya also came to pray for her Nanu. Later on, Amitabh wrote on his blog, “That call you wait anxiously knowing that it will come, and come it does to end all other calls…glimpses of reactions in the mind, of the lost one, of those that shall reflect on the lost one…and suddenly then in the midst of sorrow and grief among the grieved and grieving.”
Krishnaraj was admitted to Lilavati Hospital around two weeks ago, when his condition worsened due to lymphoma cancer. He was also put on ventilator in ICU, but unfortunately succumbed to the illness and passed away.
