Bachchan, earlier, penned an emotional post on his blog, after Ritu's demise. "The rites are over.. to ashes they have been reduced.. a crowded hall in the home filled with the close-knitted relatives and dear friends, embrace break down, hold hands, hold...and the silence of condolence gradually creeps in...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." he wrote.
