London (ANI): Actress Shilpa Shetty has her fingers crossed hoping to see her cancer-stricken Brit friend Jade Goody, after she jetted to her place to say goodbye one final time. The two had patched things up after terminally ill Jade was accused of racist bullying against the Indian actress while on Brit reality show 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
Shilpa had been unable to attend the 27-year-old's fairytale wedding with jailbird hubby Jack Tweed owing to her previous professional commitments. But the Bollywood star had promised to later visit the mum-of-two, who was said to have just few hours to live after cervical cancer spread to her entire body.
After jetting in to Jade's Essex home, Shilpa was unable to meet the dying star when spokesman Max Clifford said that Jade was too sick to see any visitors. But the Celebrity Big Brother winner said that she was not letting go any strand of hope to see her cancer-battling brave friend.
“I really feel terrible about what has happened to her. All I can do is pray. I'm not giving up hope of seeing her one last time," the Daily Star quoted her as saying. “When I left for London on Sunday, I thought I'd be able to meet her but her condition has deteriorated. She's heavily drugged and hardly awake. I feel bad because maybe I could've met her if I was here two days earlier. I always felt we were connected in a strange way, she was a catalyst and the architect of my fame in Britain," she added.
