Shilpa’s father to miss her sangeet ceremony

Today is Shilpa Shetty’s sangeet and mehendi. Preparation is going on for the wedding tomorrow and what is more devastating is that her father Surendra Shetty will miss her Sangeet as he is down with malaria. But the good news is that he will be fine till Kanyadaan.

Says a source close to Shilpa, "Poor Shilpa, her sister Shamita and their mother Sunanda are all feeling very low as her dad Surendra Shetty was suddenly taken to the ICU on Thursday night at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Andheri.

He has malaria. By Friday morning his condition improved and he was taken out from the ICU. This has put a dampener on the wedding festivities. Shilpa is extremely close to her parents and sister and unfortunately because of his poor health, her father won't be able to attend Shilpa's mehendi and sangeet ceremony today."

The source adds, "Thank God everything was diagnosed overnight and her dad was given the correct treatment on time or he wouldn't have been able to do the kanyadaan.
If that had happened, Shilpa would have been devastated. Even now, the whole thing has cast a shadow on the marriage proceedings, but Shilpa is happy that her dad will be able to give her away!"

Shilpa has chosen pink silk kaftan with zari work and Swarovski crystals done by Tarun Tahiliani for her sangeet.
