Actor Juhi Chawla's brother has been in coma after an accident for over a year. He was the CEO of Shah Rukh Khan's production company, Red Chillies Entertainment.
Recently, at the music launch of Ra.One, SRK dedicated the album to Bobby.
“I want to dedicate this album (RA.One) to Yash Joharji and Bobby. When we started our company Red Chillies Entertainment, the one who helped me start it was Bobby....,” said Shah Rukh Khan.
As Juhi has been a very close friend of SRK's, it was understandable. But Juhi is not very happy with the dedication, reports Subash K Jha.
“I’ve mixed feelings about Shah Rukh’s statement at the RA.One music release. Bobby was very much involved in the recordings of the Akon number in the film. And then he met with the mishap,” the Yes Boss actor told Jha, “I am happy that Shah Rukh remembers Bobby and acknowledges his contribution to Red Chillies. But it saddens me that this acknowledgement comes so late in the day.”
Juhi had previously lamented at how SRK has no time for his old friends.
What irks Juhi now is that Bobby has had few visitors from the indutry, and fewer still from Red Chillies. She feels that under all the pomp and show, her brother has been dealt with quite inconsiderately.
“Why do we wait for tragedy to strike to tell someone how special they are, or how special they were?,” an emotional Juhi said.
