Default Shilpa prays for Goody's recovery

Shilpa Shetty has revealed that she is praying for former “Celebrity Big Brother” contestant Jade Goody's recovery.
Goody is suffering form cervical cancer and is undergoing aggressive chemotherapy to treat the condition.

The British paper Daily Mail reported that the reality TV personalities became buddies following their fight on the show two years ago, in which Goody was branded a racist by the British public.

“What happened between us in the past means nothing compared to what Jade is going through today. Every night I pray for a miracle to save her life. You wouldn't wish this on your worst enemy,” Shilpa said.

Goody has been given a 50 percent chance of survival following a hysterectomy in September last year and is undergoing a course of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and blood transfusions in Britain.

Shilpa was one of the first to hear of Goody's condition while Goody had to leave India during the second season of the Indian version of the show, Bigg Boss.

“I was one of the first people to be told and I kept saying over and over to myself, 'It can't be true'. I remember calling Jade at Mumbai airport and telling her to hang in there and be strong for her kids,” revealed Shilpa, who also confessed that the pair could not control themselves and cried over the phone.

Shilpa revealed that Goody, 27, has maintained her sense of humour about the situation, particularly with her sons Bobby, five, and four-year-old Freddie.

“I heard Jade joked to her sons that her hair loss was caused by using the wrong shampoo, so at least she hasn't lost her sense of humour,” she said.

The “Phir Milenge” actress, who has promised to go to Britain in order to support Goody, was also serious in her admiration towards the latter.

“How she has handled herself has been nothing short of amazing. Being a working mother of two small children is a hard enough job on its own without having to battle such a serious illness at the same time,” she said.
