Dev Anand’s ashes to be immersed in Godavari

Dev Anand’s last rites were performed at the Putney Vale Crematorium in London and his son Suneil Anand will immerse his ashes in the Godavari river in Nasik this afternoon. Mohan Churiwala, a close assistant of the legendary actor has confirmed the news.

Mohan Churiwala, who escorted Suneil to Nashik from Mumbai, earlier said, "He (Suneil) is coming to Mumbai by around 12 pm. From here, we are going to Nashik to immerse Dev saab's ashes in the holy river – Godavari."

After the funeral in London a memorial service was held at the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan in London.  "A memorial service will be held at Mehboob Studios in suburban Bandra on Friday. It will be held there because a make-up room of Dev saab is still at the studio. Also, there is some emotional connect as he had shot a lot of films over there," Churiwala informed.
