Mumbai: Bollywood’s evergreen star Dev Anand’s ashes will be immersed in the Godavari river in Nashik this afternoon.
Dev Anand’s son Suneil has come to India from London to immerse his late father’s ashes in the holy river.
“He (Suneil) is coming to Mumbai. From here, we are going to Nashik to immerse Dev saab’s ashes in the holy river – Godavari,” Mohan Churiwala, a close aide of Dev Anand told PTI. Churiwala will escort Suneil to Nashik from Mumbai.
The last rites of Dev Anand, who passed away in London on December 3
following a heart attack, were performed on Saturday at the Putney Vale
Crematorium in London. A memorial service was also held at the Bharatiya
Vidya Bhavan in London, the same day.
In Mumbai, a memorial service will be held on Friday. “A memorial service will be held at Mehboob Studios in suburban Bandra
on Friday. It will be held there because a make-up room of Dev saab is
still at the studio. Also, there is some emotional connect as he had
shot a lot of films over there,” Churiwala said.
