Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's father Krishnaraj Rai, who was keeping critical for the past few days, passed away on March 18, 2017 around 4 pm. Rai was in the ICU and his condition was very critical.

As soon as we learnt about the news, we got in touch with Aishwarya's spokesperson, who confirmed the news to us.

Krishnaraj Rai was admitted to Lilavati Hospital. Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Ajitabh Bachchan, Mickey Contractor, Kunal Kapoor, Sikandar Kher among others had visited him.

Reportedly, Krishnaraj Rai had previously undergone a treatment for cancer in the past and apparently the cancer had relapsed. The doctors later revealed that he suffered from Lymphoma Cancer, which spread to the brain.

Both Abhishek and Aishwarya were in and out of the hospital for the last one month. Photographers spotted the couple outside the hospital often. Aishwarya recently also got emotional while hugging with BFF Mickey Contractor. Reportedly, she even broke down during actor Suniel Shetty's father's funeral, who passed away after prolonged illness. She could barely control her tears at the prayer meet, since she was undergoing a similar situation in her personal life.

When Aishwarya was juggling between her personal and professional life, a source had informed us, "Aishwarya is heartbroken. She has been managing her entire schedule and is making sure that she is present by her father's side throughout.

Krishnaraj Rai is survived by his wife Vrinda, son Aditya Rai, daughter-in-law Shrima Rai, daughter Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and son-in-law Abhishek Bachchan.

Our deepest condolences to the family.


Im so glad I don't have the "rani " fan in my home. I'd be doomed as having her as a daughter sister. Thank god

Same feeling here. Thank God such person is not in my home.

yes because you will make sure no one else in India can voice their opinion. Rani_fan has the courage to stand up to bullies like you and speak-truth.

Nobody is supporting u,so started replying to ur own comment..loser PV please post

.u r the biggest bully and liar here, Queen_Rani.

Uff so much negativity on person who is left this world...looks like these people have no emotions, I pity such people

There is just one delusional Rani fan.

This is an old pic

full on makeup now also!!

God you are so "intelligent", the picture of Aishwarya and Abhishek are from a party and definitely not from a hospital. You need to get a grip of yourself because you are clearly stupid. Educate yourself instead of spending time being a "fan" , then you wouldn't so stupid and bimboish.

#Disgusting creature

why so many dislikes? is it not the truth.? Has it become a crime to speak the truth in India now ! ?

You do realize that is an old pic of Ash?

RIP Mr KrishanRaj rai

Her father passed away but some are more concern for Cannes appearance. Please have a respect.

IM more worried if she will be attending Cannes or not

Always sad to lose a parent.. Hope God gives her and her family strength to go through this phase, he's gone to a better place..

He did not like Salman Khan at all. He is the one who didn't want his daughter, Aishwarya Rai, to date and marry Salman Khan.

Get a life.

Ash's father was an Officer and a Gentleman

you are a clown and a fool

You are inhuman and nasty

Parents are the greatest blessing fear of loosing our parents is the worst fear to even think RIP sir

it's always sad to lose a parent irrespective how that person was ! let's hope ash recieves the strength& the courage she needs at this difficult time.sending her loads of hugs.let's not malign her father's so wrong...she just lost her dad guys !

Ash's father was a decent guy, who didnt live in Bachchan home- unlike Vrinda, who was always there and hugging Amitabh at every opportunity. That got Ash and vrinda moved to nearby House ( in same compound). Now that Vrinda is free , she will start living with Ash permanently. feel bad for Abhishek. PV plz post.

What sort of person think of saying something like this on a news about the passing of a respectable gentleman who served our army.
please think twice before penning down your filthy thoughts on a public space. people have lost all sense of decorum nowadays.

He was a gentleman,but he Never served in the Army ( or airforce or navy or anything to do with National DefenseDepartment). Check your facts, before lying and penning down your filthy thoughts on a public space. You have lost all sense of decorum- lying about a dead man, who was decent.

He was in Navy, it is part of National Defense Department.

He was NEVER in the Indian Navy. just because you make up a story, it wont make your Ash look good. Stop #lying.

Get a life and a family.loser

He was from Mars- he was naval commander on Mars !. Ash is queen of Mercury. Amitabh is king of Earth.

Get a life and a family.

yeah, He was President of India !

Yes, let us make him anything we want, why just NAvy ? He was president of USA !!

Get a life and a family.

Yes, just because you say it, it doesnt become the truth. and was he in the navy that is run from your bathroom??
You are mental. Understand the difference between a commericial ship and Indian Navy.

Get a life and a family.

You are mental. You are insulting the ARMY, by equating him to an Army personnel. He was a decent man, does not mean, you create some story about him in your mind, and start saying he was an Army general .

Have a family and please care for them.-_- #FilthyMind

He served in the naval army. And this is not the topic to talk ill about someone dead. Get a life.

"Naval Army " ? this shows your IQ . People like you make up #fake news.
Only someone with your IQ level can be a fan of Ash. Long live #stupidity

Only someone with so much negativity can be a fan of Rani..#stupid

there's nothing wrong with that comment.

R u serious?..u r that same person with filthy thoughts, rt?

God bless ur family if u see nothing wrong with it.

RIP, it's always heartbreaking when a loved one passes, hope her family stays strong during this difficult time

RIP and may God give their families the strength to overcome their loss. It's so heartbreaking to loose a parent... changes you.

There were rumours he had issues with Salman Vivek and even abhishek didn't get along too well with him..seemed like he was very interfering father who didn't let daughter and her lovers breathe. Anyways may he rest in peace

Extremely dignified family in every possible way. My condolences. RIP.

Heartbreaking news :( I am so sad right for Ash as I can feel her pain, I was hoping he recovers and goes back home happy with his family and loved ones, may his soul rest in peace and Allah give strength to Aishwarya and family. But I wonder if salman will attend the funeral, if he was really that gold-hearted he will attend it and prove he is not that nasty

He saw Aish at her peak and was very proud of her. Sad he wasn't alive for longer to see his grandchildren grow. Hope she takes time out and doesn't head in to films or doing event appearances so soon after...

I know you're coming from a good place but what she decides to do after is not your business. She can do whatever she likes. Gosh!!

I know you're coming from a good place but it's not your business as to dictate how she should spend her days after. Events or not or get locked up in her house should not be your concern.

May his soul rest in peace. My love to Aishwarya, Vrinda Rai and Aditya Rai.

May he RIP. Sending strong prayers to Aishwarya and her family

RIP Krishnaraj Rai. Mr and Mrs Rai I want to say that u ppl are indeed great n ppl with morals n values...n we can say this from he way u have brought ur children !!

May his soul rest in Peace!

This is so sad! RIP Sir


RIP Mr. Krishnaraj Rai. You were an epitome of class and perseverance. Your daughterhas made you so proud as she has reached heights that no one has reached. She was your daughter and you had ingrained some great qualities in her. May God giveTHE Bachchan family the strength and light to carry on. Our deepest and sincerest condolences to you and your family.

RIP . I was praying he comes out of it.

Does anybody know if she will be going to Cannes this year in April? She is a strong woman...I feel like she will go

Blessed be Aishwarya, may God give you and your family the strength and light to carry on. My deepest and sincerest condolences to you and your family.

May his soul rest in peace.

R.I.P Mr Rai

Aishwarya's strong personality is a testament to how well she was brought up by her father and mother. He seemed like a person with great values and firm personality. Rest in peace Mr. Krishnaraj Rai .....

One year back I lost my father, he was in hospital for two weeks, couldn't speak , I saw he was going away from me gradually. I know the pain. Aishwarya should be proud, his father saw her success and she did lots of thing for her father. I am an unfortunate girl, I couldn't finish my education, I didn't have job and I couldn't do anything for my father who was pillar of my life.

I know how you feel but am sure you have done a lot of things with great love and care for your father, and he has recognized those little things and been happy. Wise parents too probably recognize that it's not the destination, but the journey that matters. Success and failure are part of life. How we are with each other along the way, matters. For there may be no tomorrow.

I am sorry for your loss . You can still complete your education & get a good job. Never too late for that. Lots of luck.

Don't think of yourself that way. A lot of things that happen in our lives are out of our control. Aishwarya was lucky that she had her father in her life as long as she did. Aishwarya is in her forties. But you must be a young girl. Had he lived longer you would have been able to do more things for him. Stay happy and do good deeds in the memory of your father.

Sad to hear about this. RIP mr Rai. Hope mrs Rai and Ash and Aditya have the strength to cope with this.

RIP Mr Rai . Always see him unobtrusively in the background looking on with pride and affection at his daughter.

Salman should attend the funeral and pay his last respects.

So sad.. may his soul rest in peace .......

Can't say Ash stay strong because she was born strong and she is a fighter. RIP krishnaraj ji. As I am following Aish for the last 20 years I know she will shoot some Ad in a couple of weeks. She is a strong woman.

My condolences to her and her family!

May he rest in peace. My condolences to Aishwarya and her family. x

This is really sad :( He looked so genuine and warm. I guess Ash won't be going to Cannes this year.
