Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan on Wednesday attended the last rites of his wife Gauri Khan’s father Ramesh Chandra Chibber here. Chibber, a retired Colonel from the Indian Army, breathed his last on Tuesday night, and Shahrukh Khan and Gauri took a flight from Mumbai to the national capital upon hearing the news, a source close to the actor said.
The couple attended the cremation — looking visibly upset but standing strong by Gauri’s mother’s side — at the Lodhi Road crematorium. Also accompanying them was their close friend and filmmaker Karan Johar.
“Death is the only reminder of life,” Karan tweeted on Wednesday.
Shahrukh Khan is said to have put the shooting of a new project on hold to be with his family at this time of personal loss.
