Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty's father Veerapa Shetty has passed away at the age of 93 in Mumbai.

Mid-Day reported that Shetty's father breathed his last at 1.30 am on Wednesday, 1 March 2017, at the Breach Candy Hospital.

The funeral is expected to be held on Thursday.

Veerapa Shetty had been ailing since 2014, and an entire wing in the Shetty residence had been converted into an ICU-like medical facility for his benefit.
