Bollywood luminaries have continued to pay their respects to India’s first superstar, Rajesh Khanna during a prayer function in Mumbai.

Khanna, who died last week of an undisclosed illness, was known as the “King of Romance”, playing the lead in nearly all of his 170 movies.

The 69-year-old’s funeral last week drew thousands, desperate for a glance of his glass coffin before he was cremated in a Hindu ceremony.

Family members led the prayer meeting on Saturday, including his estranged wife Dimple Kapadia, daughters Twinkle and Rinke, son-in-law Akshay Kumar and grandson Aarav.

Celebrities including Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Rishi Kapoor and wife Neetu Singh provided a dash of glamour to the event, which saw guests greeted with a large black-and-white photograph of the actor in his heyday.

The Indian Express described the gathering at a five-star Mumbai hotel as “Bollywood praying for the departed soul of Rajesh Khanna”.
