TV Actor Gaurav Chopra’s Father Passes Away After Actor Lost His Mother Due To Covid-19

Gaurav Chopra's Father Passes Away

Renown television actor Gaurav Chopra’s father Swatantra Chopra who had tested positive for COVID-19 last month died on Saturday 10 days after the actor lost his mother.

On Monday Gaurav Chopra took to Instagram and confirmed the news of his father’s passing away. Gaurav’s parents had contracted Covid-19.

Gaurav Chopra wrote on his Instagram post, “Shri Swatantra Chopra
My Hero. My idol. My inspiration…
Will I ever manage to be a millionth of a man that he was?
Don’t think so…

The ideal man, the ideal son, the ideal brother, a man who always put family above EVERYTHING else.
An ideal father …it took me 25 years to even come to terms with the fact that all fathers are not like him.. That he was special .. I was blessed..and as his son, that’s the legacy I have inherited…loved and respected so so much more than I ever will be..a celebrity in its true terms. As a child, me walking down the street or the market always knew that I was recognised as his son. By all. That the shopkeeper will greet me and take lesser money because I was his son…was something that I was used to.. This: when he didn’t even know of their existence.
It was a regular affair to find some unknown person at our gates bringing along a guest who was looking for our house. All you had to say was “Chopra Saab’s house? ” And anybody in that vast radius would bring you to the correct place. The love, warmth and generosity that he had .. the idealism, the strength…”

Not only this Gaurav also shared how his father took care of his mother during her battle with cancer.

“An ideal husband..devoted his entire existence towards making my mother better in these last four years. To the point of getting a disease trying to protect her and then leaving all of us to keep her company..
She left us on the 19th and he did on the 29th.
10 days ..and they’re both gone.
A void, vacuum that no amount of time will ever fill…” He further added in his post.

Gaurav Chopra has worked in TV shows like Doli Armaano Ki, Gulmohar Grand, Left Right Left, Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyann and Uttaran. He was last seen in the reboot of Sanjivani.

Lastly, we pay our homage to his parents and may God give him the ultimate strength to bear this lifelong lost.
