Braving the rain, thousands of fans are gathered at Bollywood’s first superstar Rajesh Khanna‘s home to be part of their icon’s funeral procession in Mumbai on Thursday.

The legend’s final journey started around 10am from his residence Aashirwad in Bandra, Mumbai. His body, in a transparent casket, was placed on a mini-truck decorated with white flowers. The last rites will take place at the Vile Parle crematorium at 11:30am.

With him on his last journey were his estranged wife Dimple, who took care of him in the last days, his younger daughter Rinke and son-in-law, actor Akshay Kumar who is married to his elder daughter Twinkle.

The actor, fondly called Kaka by his family and friends, passed away Wednesday morning following a liver infection. Rajesh started his career with the 1966 film Akhari Khat and went on to give hit films like Aradhana, Kati PatangAnand and Amar Prem that propelled him to dazzling fame.
