    Anupam Kher wrote: “Parmeshwar Godrej was a larger than life lady. She gave style and glamour a new dimension. Her charity work was great.”

    Former union minister Milind Deora tweeted: “Deepest condolences to Adi uncle, Tanya, Nisaba, Pirojsha and family. Will miss Parmeshwar Godrej, one of the warmest, toughest people I knew.”

    Jewellery designer Farah Khan said: “Lost a close family friend. My childhood years were filled with her memories. RIP Parmeshwar Aunty, you shall be missed Parmeshwar Godrej.”

    Film producer Ashvini Yardi said she was “shocked and deeply saddened”.

    “So many lovely conversations. Hard to believe she is no more.. Parmeshwar Godrej RIP,” Yardi wrote.
