Sunanda Pushkar Tharoor who died recently was believed to share a close bond with Sussanne Roshan's mother Zarine Khan.
Zarine, who is still in complete shock over the sudden demise of the popular socialite revealed in an interview that she had many a time, asked the lady to ignore Shashi-Mehr Tarar issue.
In an interview to a leading daily, Zarine said that she had always urged Sunanda to forget about all those things in her life that are giving her worry, including the much controversial Shashi-Mehr Tarar issue.
Zarine said: "Sunanda was the life of every party - a beautiful lady with a beautiful heart. I was on BBM with her on Friday morning, but when she didn't respond, I sent Shashi a text and invited them over. He replied saying there was work and he needed to take care of it. There was no question of any discord between them. He was crazily in love with her.”
She further added, “There are misunderstandings in all marriages, but they were happy. Her health, of course, had been taking a serious toll on her. I had met her when she was in Dubai last and she had lost a lot of weight since she was suffering from Lupus. It is unlike Sunanda to take an extreme step like suicide. She mixed with everyone and never behaved like a minister's wife.”
While taking a stance on how much jovial natured Sunanda was, Zarine said: “She took her old friends to all the big parties she went for. I was speaking to her during this time and kept telling her to forget these things (the Shashi-Mehr controversy). Shashi used to call her so many times. It's unbelievable what has happened. May God give Shashi and her young son the strength to deal with this."
