SRK’s father-in-law Colonel Ramesh Chandra Chibber, died on March 1, 2016 at 8.55 PM. He passed away from age-related problems in Escorts Hospital, New Delhi. Shah Rukh Khan put all his work-related tasks on hold and rushed to New Delhi to be with his wife in this trying time.
SRK had earlier said that Ramesh Chibber was an epitome of discipline and love. He said that when he and Gauri Khan were dating, they knew marriage would be a tough call, as SRK was a small-time TV actor and came from a totally different background, not to mention, belonged to a different religion. However, Gauri’s father began to appreciate his SRK’s patience and dedication for his daughter and gave his permission for marriage. Following the marriage, SRK and Gauri’s father went on to become close friends; the actor always spoke highly of his father-in-law who shared similar sentiments about his famous son-in-law.
