Shilpa Shetty’s father Surendra breathed his last on Tuesday morning at his Versova residence following a cardiac arrest. He was rushed to Mumbai’s Kokilaben Hospital where he was declared brought dead.
Shilpa bid her father, Surendra Shetty, a moving goodbye in a message on her Instagram account.
On Wednesday evening, the actress took to her Instagram account to share a picture of her father with a poem that read, “Our HERO Loving and kind in all his ways, Upright and just to the end of his days; Sincere and true, in his heart and mind, Beautiful memories, he left behind. A link in our family chain is broken, He has gone from our home But not from our hearts. We love u Daddy, you have been the best father, husband, friend and soul. May you Rest in Peace. Shri Surendra Dejoo Shetty 22 Dec 1941-11 Oct 2016 With gratitude Sunanda, Shamita, Shilpa, Raj,Viaan-Raj The Shetty and Kundra Family.”
Very close to both his daughters, Shilpa and Shamita, Surendra was full of life and was often spotted with Shilpa’s mother at chosen social dos. He was a big influence on his daughters’ life and both were seen inconsolable at the funeral on Wednesday.
Bollywood celebs and friends of the Shettys paid their last respect at the cremation. Akshay Kumar, Abhishek Bachchan, Salim Khan, Arpita Khan, Vashu Bhagnani, Raveena Tandon, Harman Baweja and Sophie Choudry were just some of the people who were seen visiting Shilpa after the sad news.
