I loved going shooting with you, loved cooking your favourite Indian dishes and having conversations on every topic under the sun. Thank you so much for opening your home & your heart to me & my family. The East Coast will never be the same without you. I know you are at peace right now and at a happy place. Rest in peace.” She also added the hashtags #RIPJonSwindle #fatherinlaw #Omshanti.

Preity Zinta often shares glimpses of her personal life on social media.A few weeks ago, she posted images of her twins’ Mundan ceremony. Along with the photo, she wrote, “So the ‘Mundan ceremony’ finally happened this weekend. For Hindus, the first shaving off the hair for babies is considered to be a gesture of purification from the memory of their previous births and freedom from the past. Here are Jai & Gia post their Mundan ceremony.”
Before that, the Dil Se actress shared an image of Gene with the twins and said, “Happy Father’s Day to the best father I know and to all the dads out there. Papa not a day goes by when I don’t think of you or I miss you. #happyfathersday #ting.”
Preity Zinta and Gene Goodenough are settled in Los Angeles. The couple welcomed twins Gia and Jai through surrogacy in 2021.
