Where do you go, daddy?

The actress was very close to her father and was heartbroken after her father's sudden demise. She wrote a heartfelt poem for her late dad.

'Our Hero

Loving and kind in all his ways,

Upright and just to the end of his days;

Sincere and true, in his heart and mind,

Beautiful memories, he left behind

A link in our family chain is broken,

He has gone from our home

But not from our hearts.

We love you, Daddy, you have been the best father,

husband, friend, and soul...

May you rest in peace.

Shri Surendra Dejoo Shetty (22 Dec 1941-11 Oct 2016)

With gratitude,

Sunanda, Shamita, Shilpa, Raj, Viaan-Raj, The Shetty and Kundra Family.
