Our very own 'Rustam-e-Hind' Dara Singh left for his heavenly abode on Thursday evening and left his fans deeply saddened.
His Bollywood colleagues gathered to pay him a tribute at his home 'Dara Villa'. The actor's body was taken for cremation thereafter. Seen at his home, paying their last respect to the actor were Tabu, Farah Naaz, Sanjay Khan, Mahie Gill, Jatin of the Jatin-Lalit duo, Dolly Bindra, Kapil Sharma, Mink, Surendra Pal, Arjun, Arun Bakshi, Ranjit and many more.
Thousands of people gathered outside his house to witness their favourite star's final journey.
Actor Abhishek Bachchan, who also came to pay his last respects to Dara Singh, called him, the "true hero of Indian cinema."
The legendary actor was admitted to the hospital on Saturday, following a cardiac arrest and later, his condition went on to become worse as his brain suffered acute damages.
