Teary eyed Aishwarya holds it together at Father Krishnaraj Rai’s prayer meeting yesterday
Celebrities from the film fraternity were snapped attending the prayer meet of Aishwrya Rai Bachchan’s father Krishnaraj Rai, held on March 21, 2017. Krishnaraj Rai lost his battle with cancer on March 18, 2017. He was an army biologist and had been on life support at Lilavati Hospital, Mumbai in his last day.

A bevy of celebrities offered their condolences to dear colleague Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Aishwarya’s father suffered from Lymphoma cancer which gradually spread to his brain. All through his illness, daughter Aishwarya was constantly by her side. He was hospitalized on March 8, 2017, early in the morning and passed away ten days later.
Krishnaraj Rai was treated by Dr. Lt. Gen V Ravishankar. Father-in-law, Amitabh Bachchan even wrote a farewell message on his official blog, “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 ..”
Husband Abhishek was constantly seen by wife Aishwarya’s side through the prayer meet. The actress and beauty queen was very close to her father.
We offer our condolences to Aishwarya Rai and her family.
