Not only Abhishek but his father megastar Amitabh Bachchan too penned an emotional letter directed to his inconsolable daughter-in-law. He wrote about the fact of life and death.
“Death has but one end… And words cannot define it. 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.
He also expressed his gratitude to people on Twitter saying, “To them that express condolence on the passing of Aishwarya’s father… my gratitude..!
Krishnaraj Rai is survived by his wife Vrindya Rai, son Aditya and daughter Aishwarya.
