We offer our condolences to actress Shilpa Shetty whose father, Surendra Shetty, passed away on Tuesday.
Shetty had suffered massive cardiac arrest while he was asleep.
He was a businessman. A family member said Surendra was a great influence in Shilpa and and her sister Shamita’s lives. Surendra also enjoyed the company of many of Shilpa’s co-stars especially Salman Khan who is known to have been quite close to the senior Shetty.
The funeral was held on Wednesday morning.
Surendra was in news a few months ago when he was a duped by a self-proclaimed godman to the tune of a few crores. The baba was finally arrested after the family filed a police complaint.
“I’ve seen both my parents work really hard and my dad used to do the laundry. When we were young, the washing machine was just introduced, so I remember my dad waiting for the weekend only to help my mother do the laundry,” Shilpa had earlier said in an interview.
He 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.- CINEWS
