On Friday, Rhea Chakraborty took to her Instagram handle to mourn the loss of her beloved uncle. She mentioned that he was a retired army officer and a orthopaedic surgeon.
Sharing a picture of her uncle, Rhea penned a heartfelt note that reads:
“Col S Suresh Kumar VSM (Retd) 10.11.1968-1.5.2021. A renowned orthopaedic surgeon, a decorated officer, a loving father and a wonderful human being. Covid took you away, but your legacy continues ... Suresh Uncle, you're a real life Hero! I salute you sir. R.I.P.”
In her post, Rhea also urged all her followers to follow safety precautions against Covid-19 and added:
“I urge you all to please be home and stay safe, Covid doesn't see good or bad #letsuniteagainstcovid #stayhomestaysafe.”
Rhea Chakraborty’s father Indrajit Chakraborty is also a retired Lieutenant Colonel who served in the Army for 25 years. He had opted for a pre mature retirement and moved to Mumbai to help his daughter Rhea pursue her dreams of being an actress.
Rhea made her Bollywood debut in 2013. She became the center of the news in 2020 after the sudden demise of her boyfriend and Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
On the work front, Rhea will be seen in her upcoming movie Chehre also starring Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi. The movie was scheduled to release in April this year but has been postponed due to the pandemic.
