Shetty Shuns Baftas For Sick Dad

The actress was told her dad SUDENDRA was suffering from a mystery illness on Friday (09FEB07), and she immediately jumped on a plane to make the 4,500 mile journey from London to Mumbai, India to look after him. Sudendra developed a high fever after complaining of feeling ill at the end of last week (begs05FEB07), but is now thought to be recovering well. Her spokesman MAX CLIFFORD reveals, "Shilpa was understandably very upset when she was told her dad was very ill. She immediately made plans to fly home. Obviously family always comes first."
