Bollywood's tragedy king, Dilip Kumar, has been laid to rest with full state honours, reported The Indian Express. The celebrated star was buried at Juhu Qabrastan in Mumbai. Kumar breathed his last at Hinduja Hospital at 7:30 am today (July 7).

His wife Saira Banu was by his side at his last moments. The legendary actor's mortal remains were brought to his Mumbai home, where several Bollywood actors paid their last respects to him. Last month, Kumar was hospitalised twice due to breathing issues.

The actor's dead body was wrapped in the Tricolor as Mumbai Police officials accompanied the funeral procession from the Devdas star's residence to Juhu Qabrastan. Saira Banu was also spotted.
