Amitabh, Anil Ambani pay tribute to Parmeshwar Godrej

Amitabh Bachchan with daughter Shweta Nanda, industrialist Anil Ambani and wife Tina Ambani with their mother Kokilaben paid their last tribute to socialite and entrepreneur Parmeashwar Godrej, who passed away on Monday at Mumbai's Breach Candy Hospital. She was reportedly suffering from a lung disease and suffered pneumonia, as per doctors.

She was full of life and was an active social worker. She was close to many Bollywood celebrities and often seen at their functions and events.

No sooner the news of her dead broke out, celebrities including Farhan Akhtar, Kabir Bedi, Anupam Kher, Madhur Bhandarkar, Shabana Azmi and Abhishek Kapoor took to their Twitter handle to pay their heartfelt condolence.

She took active participation in spreading AIDS awareness in India. She launched the initiative with Hollywood actor Richard Gere in 2004. The effort also received support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative.

Before getting married to Adi Godrej, Parmeshwar Godrej has also worked as an air hostess for Air India. She was famously known for her hat donning avatar.

In 2012, Parmeshwar Godrej also hosted party in honour of famous American host Oprah Winfrey, in her Juhu Villa which was attended by film fraternities and many dignitaries.

She is survived by her husband Adi Godrej and three children Nisa Godrej, Pirojsha Adi Godrej and Tanya Dubash.

May her soul rest in peace!
