Thousands of fans with moist eyes bid final farewell to their favourite actor and Bollywood's first macho man Dara Singh, who died here Thursday morning.
The legend's final journey started around 3 p.m. from his residence in Juhu. His body was placed on a mini-truck decorated with colourful flowers, and taken to the Pawan Hans crematorium, where his last rites were conducted.
Despite the security arrangements, Dara Singh's grieving fans managed to pay homage - they were showering flower petals on the late wrestler's body.
Former Mumbai Congress chief Kripashankar Singh remembered Dara Singh for stint as a wrestler-actor and added: "He never misused his friends. I still remember him for his role in 'Ramayan'."
Dara Singh died at his home here Thursday morning following a brief illness. He was 84.
He had a cardiac problem on July 7 and was rushed to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital by his family members. He had been in a critical condition since then.
He is survived by his wife and six children - three sons and three daughters. One of his sons, Vindu Dara Singh, is a known name in showbiz.

I have always admired him as an actor. I remember him mostly as Lord Hanuman in Ramayan
