Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s father Krishnaraj Rai died on Saturday evening, after fighting a prolonged illness. He breathed his last at Mumbai’s Lilavati Hospital where was admitted for the last one month. At this difficult time for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and the entire Bachchan family, condolences continued to pour in from across the Bollywood fraternity. As the Bachchans struggled to come to terms with their loss, Aish’s father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan took to Twitter to express his grief.

Krishnaraj Rai’s funeral took place around 8.30 pm at Vile Parle Seva Sansthan Shamshan Bhoomi last night. Amitabh Bachchan, who was also seen at the funeral, later tweeted, “T 2468 – Death has but one end .. and words cannot define it ..!!” This totally explains how shaken he is by the news.

Big B also posted a long message on his official blog. He wrote, “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 ..”

“That walk to the ultimate destination and the reality… Embracing the tragedy, the discussions on its transport, its rituals, its formalities… The custom, the tradition, the visitors with the sadness and the embrace of consolation, the last rites, the carriage, the placement, the cremation… What to say what to put out where to put to… All laden with grief and departure,” he added.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s father Krishnaraj Rai was reportedly battling cancer. Her spokesperson told indianexpress.com, “Yes, it is true that Mr Krishnaraj Rai has passed away.” He survived by wife Vrinda, son Aditya and Aishwarya.
