A bevy of Bollywood stars reached Mumbai’s ISCKON temple recently, to attend the chautha ceremony of Shilpa Shetty’s father Surendra Shetty, who passed away on October 10th following a cardiac arrest.
Big names from the industry, including Amitabh Bachchan with wife Jaya and daughter-in-law Aishwarya, Preity Zinta, Vivek Oberoi, Rishi and Neetu Kapoor, Poonam Dhillon, Jackie Shroff, among others, marked their presence. Telly stars like Karishma Tanna, Rithvik Dhanjani, Sanjeeda and Aamir Ali too came to play their last respects.
Surendra Shetty was also rushed to Kokilaben Ambani Hospital where he was declared dead. The 74-year-old was seen on the small screen last year when he came on the set of dance reality TV show ‘Jhalak Reloaded’ with Sunanda and Shilpa to cheer for Shamita, who was participating in the finals.
Surendra Shetty was said to be a health-conscious man and would regularly go for walks. He was extremely fond of his grandson Viaan and would spend a lot of time with him.
