B-towners tweet condolences for Vilasrao Deshmukh’s death

The passing away of the former Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Riteish Deshmukh’s father and Genelia D’Souza’s father in law, has saddened many in Bollywood, including Shahrukh Khan

Riteish Deshmukh’s father and Genelia D’Souza’s father-in-law Vilasrao Deshmukh passed away in Chennai earlier today. He suffered multiple organ failure as a consequence of liver cancer. Friends and colleagues of Riteish and Genelia have expressed their condolences to the late politician’s family on Twitter, and Shahrukh spoke at an event about the late chief minister. We at BollywoodLife wish the Deshmukh family all the strength to brave this loss and hope that Deshmukh Sr rests in peace.

Shahrukh Khan:

I’m feeling very sorry. I have known him (Vilasrao) for years. (His son) Riteish is a close friend of mine. I spoke to him. I am very sad, it is very unexpected. He was a wonderful gentleman, apart from being the chief minister. He was a very wonderful person. My respects to the family. I am deeply disturbed.
