Big B visits Aishwarya’s father in hospital, actress inconsolable

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan visited his daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai’s father Krishnaraj Rai at the Lilavati Hospital, Mumbai, where he has been admitted due to illness. Reportedly, Krishnaraj Rai has been admitted there over two weeks ago, but was recently shifted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) after his condition worsened.

Big B paid a visit to Krishnaraj Rai last night even as son Abhishek was constantly by his wife’s side taking care of her ailing father. The 43-year-old actress looked very tensed waiting for her dad to recover.

Aishwarya’s friends from the industry also dropped in to pay her ailing dad a visit. She was inconsolable and was seen hugging her old friend, make-up artist Mickey Contractor as he consoled her.

Earlier, the ‘Sarabjit’ actress’ publicist confirmed the news of her father’s illness and told a website, “Yes, Aishwarya’s dad is in a critical condition and is on the ventilator now. Close family members from all over have rushed to Mumbai to be with the family in these difficult times. We are praying for the best.”

Abhishek, who was away in New York for work, also returned to Mumbai recently to be by his wife’s side. Abhi-Ash had also cut short their New Year vacation in Dubai, along with daughter Aaradhya, after learning about her father’s deteriorating health.
