Ridhi Dogra Pens An Emotional Note, Mourning Uncle Arun Jaitley’s Death

TV actress Ridhi Dogra has penned an emotional tribute to former Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who passed away at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi on Saturday after prolonged illness.

Dogra remembered Jaitley as “dedicated and so focused” whose knowledge and sharp insight about everything was “tremendous”. For the uninitiated, Jaitley’s wife, Sangeeta is Dogra’s paternal aunt.

“He is indeed a huge loss to the nation. But his loss to our family is deeper. A void never to be filled. I have grown up around him and buji, played innumerable times with Sonali and Rohan, in his office when he was a lawyer,” Dogra recalled.

“He loved the company of children and the youth and always wanted to hear how our lives were going and how we saw our future. It used to be mesmerizing to sit in the same room as him and hear him talk as he would have everyone engaged and in splits with his anecdotes and stories one after another from his incredible life. He exemplified high standard of ethics, ideologies and value system which I have learnt and tried to imbibe in my work and life,” she continued.
