Indian Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty lost her father, Surendra Dejoo Shetty, on 11th October 2016. Mr. Shetty passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest at his Andheri residence, a source close to the actress said.
"I may find my prince, but my dad will always be my king."
Unlike every girl, Shilpa adores her father a lot, the way he treated Shilpa and Shamita throughout his life is commendable.
It's devastating for the entire family to lose their beloved family member with the feeling in their hearts that they are never going to meet him again.
Shilpa was seen tearful and broken at her late father's funeral in Mumbai.
She embraced her family and friends outside the Mumbai crematorium on Wednesday.

Akshay Kumar, Abhishek Bachchan, and many more celebs stood with Shilpa Shetty and her family in their moment of grief. Shilpa's B-town friends stayed at the crematorium praying for the departed soul and offering their condolences to the family.
Surendra Shetty's body was taken to the crematorium in an ambulance around 11:30 am from his Versova home where it was kept for family and friends to pay their last respects. Shilpa Shetty's husband performed his father-in-law's last rites and offered the mukhagni (lighting the pyre).
Shilpa Shetty's happy and special moments with her beloved mom and dad.
"After the funeral and everybody's gone home,
Where do you go, daddy?
It was like there was a big reception and everybody came,
But I was left with the mess.
I was left with me."
There are not enough words what can define your grief when you lose somebody whom you loved the most. Shilpa is inconsolable, but she is strong enough to handle her family with love and care at this crucial time.
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.
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)
