Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan rushed back from Chennai to attend co star Juhi Chawla’s brother Bobby Chawla’s funeral. Shah Rukh was specially invited to attend the music and trailer launch of Rajnikanth and Deepika Padukone starrer ‘Kochadaiyaan’. He had gone to Chennai by a chartered flight as special guest and was accompanied by Rajnikanth’s co-star Deepika Padukone.
Shah Rukh Khan had got the news of former Red Chillies’ CEO Bobby’s demise in the beginning of the launch itself but he decided to finish the ‘Kochadaiyaan’ and fly back for the funeral.
Bobby who was Juhi Chawla’s only sibling had been in coma since 2010. He was not just Shah Rukh’s associate but also his close friend.
Shah Rukh was deeply shaken by the news.
“He wanted to fly back immediately. But out of respect for Rajni Sir he stayed back till the end of the event and then rushed back in time for Sanjeev’s funeral at 4 pm on Sunday,” says a source from Chennai.
