After Neetu Kapoor and Riddhima Kapoor Sahni penned heartfelt notes in Ritu Nanda’s memory, Amitabh Bachchan has now taken to his blog to write down a heartfelt letter as a tribute to the precious family member.

He started the blog by writing:  “...that silent knock at the work place .. the hurried expression of worried concern .. the hours that sleep in most parts of the World that seek the midnight .. shuffled steps, soft anxious and disturbed conversations .. and then within a blink .. the lights go out .. .. she has gone ..”

He went on to recall all the moments spent together and wrote:  “...polite conversation , of reminisce , of association , of happy times spent together , of the fight and struggle for the ailment for years .. and most of all the loneliness of them that are left behind .. the vacuum .. the emptiness .. the presence that filled up the entire home .. lost and gone ..”
