Film celebrities like Madhur Bhandarkar and Rishi Kapoor have hoped for a “a better life in a better world” for that nurse Aruna Shanbaug, who died after being in a vegetative state for almost 42 years ever since she was raped.
Shanbaug, who was the world’s oldest comatose patient, died in Mumbai’s KEM Hospital.
Here’s what the celebrities tweeted for the departed soul:
