London, Mar 20 (ANI): Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty has said that she's glad she didn't get to see her dying friend Jade Goody because she wants to remember her as the bubbly girl she met two years ago.
Shetty had planned to see the former Big Brother star on her trip to London but couldn't meet her when Goody's health deteriorated.
However, the 33-year-old winner of Big Brother said that she cherished the last phone conversation she had with Goody.
"I am happy in a way I haven't got to see Jade," the Sun quoted Shetty, as saying on her blog.
"It would've depressed me no end. I always want to remember her smiling, the feisty strong gregarious Jade, a true trooper," she added.
However, Shetty admitted that she feels even worse knowing that if she'd planned her trip earlier, she would have been able to see Goody.
The actress said that she's been praying for Goody and has been keeping up-to-date with her progress with their shared publicist Max Clifford.
"I feel even worse 'cause maybe I could've met her if I was here two days earlier. You are in my prayers Jade - you are destiny's child," she said. (ANI)
