His daughter-actor Mallika Dua penned an emotional note for her late father remembering him as a 'self-made, lion-hearted legend who roared in rebellion till his last breath' as she bid him goodbye. In a social media post, she had informed that the cremation will take place on Sunday (December 5) at Lodhi crematorium at noon. Many politicians and celebrities offered condolences to the family.
