Raj Kapoor’s daughter and Shweta Bachchan Nanda’s mother-in-law, 71-year-old Ritu Nanda passed away yesterday. A lot of people from the film industry turned up to pay their last respects to in New Delhi yesterday including Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor, Armaan Jain and several others.
Amitabh Bachchan wrote a heartfelt note on Ritu Nanda’s demise on his blog. It read, “That silent knock at the workplace .. the hurried expression of worried concern .. the hours that sleep in most parts of the World that seek the midnight .. shuffled steps, soft anxious and disturbed conversations .. and then within a blink .. the lights go out .. .. she has gone ..”
He further added, “polite conversation, of reminisce, of association, of happy time spent together, of the fight and struggle for the ailment for years .. and most of all the loneliness of them that are left behind .. the vacuum .. the emptiness .. the presence that filled up the entire home .. lost and gone ..”
Our condolences are with the family.
