Following the death of Krishnaraj Rai – father of India’s beauty queen Aishwarya Rai Bachchan – Bollywood veteran Amitabh Bachchan took to social media to ink a philosophical post about death.
T 2468 - Death has but one end .. and words cannot define it ..!!— Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) March 18, 2017
Big B noted how death is an ultimate reality, which cannot be explained in words.
The senior Rai, whose funeral was attended by numerous B-world celebrities including Shah Rukh Khan, Kunal Kapoor, and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, allegedly died Saturday evening due to lymphoma. He had served in the Indian army and was transferred to Intensive Care Unit (ICU) earlier in February this year on the back of health issues.
In his official blog, Bachchan wrote, “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 .. […] And the happiest of them all, is the one that has gone .. for he is already in the arms of the heavens and in a realm of peace and tranquility ..”
The legendary artist had paid a visit to Rai at the hospital during his illness.
