Mumbai, March 16 (IANS) Setting aside all her work, Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty has left for London to meet her "Bigg Brother" housemate and cancer-stricken reality TV star Jade Goody.
Jade Goody is feared to be just hours away from her end as her condition has deteriorated rapidly. Doctors have given her only a few hours before the inevitable death.
Shilpa, who had a series of racially-charged run-ins with Jade during 2007's "Celebrity Bigg Brother", flew to London Sunday night as she doesn't want to miss this last opportunity of meeting Jade.
"Whatever happened between Shilpa and Jade was in the past. Shilpa can't believe how fast Jade's life has been devastated. It has made her realise the futility of fights, rivalries and mundane bickering," a friend of the Bollywood star said.
"Yes, she's been very keen to meet Jade for a while. But was unable to make it because of her various commitments. But now there seems to be little choice. Either Shilpa rushes to meet Jade now or it's too late."
Rushing to finish off her last-minute chores before flying to London Shilpa said, "I really don't want to say anything on this. It's too personal. But what has happened with Jade is really sad."
