Priyanka Chopra is trying to bring back assistant’s body from USA.
Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra is making all efforts to bring back the body of her assistant Jiban Patra, who died of a heart attack in Los Angeles last week.
A source close to Priyanka said, “All details and financial requirements related to the repatriation was and is being handled directly by Ms. Chopra and her team in LA.”
Priyanka Chopra’s official spokesperson said, “This is a very unfortunate and unexpected situation. Our deepest condolences go out to Mr. Patra’s family. Our aim throughout was to ensure that Mr. Patra’s remains were brought back to his family at the very earliest. Owing to the situation that this occurred in a foreign country, where no family member was present, there was multiple levels of paperwork and processes that had to be followed to ensure that the matter was handled effectively and in a timely manner.”
Priyanka, who is herself in the United States right now has condoled the death. She has cancelled all her appointments and delayed her return to India until the body of Jiban Patra is recovered from the mortuary, where it is kept at the moment and sent back to India. Sources say that whatever delay is taking place is due to Jiban’s family and the Bollywood actress has no role to play in it.
This entire incident came into limelight, when a tabloid reported that the family of Jiban has no money to bring back his body from USA and this have only increased their problems. Sources close to the Bollywood actress have now clarified that she was always there to help the family of her late assistant and is doing everything possible for them.
The spokesperson added further, “All details and financial requirements related to the repatriation was and is being handled directly by Ms. Chopra and her team in LA. We are making all efforts to ensure his family’s needs are taken care of at this unfortunate time.”
