Anupam Kher was on his way to Goa to attend David Dhawan's son Rohit's wedding when his younger brother Raju broke the news of their father's death to him.

The actor headed back to Mumbai immediately for the last rites.

On February 13, the family gathered with friends and well wishers to 'not mourn' the actor's father Pushkar Nath Kher, who was described as a people's person.

The mood was light and visitors turned up in colourful clothes and smiles. Many were heard praising the novel way in which the prayer ceremony was organised.

Anupam Kher tweeted, "Today is my father's Prayer ceremony. I know he wants us to celebrate life.So there will be Rock band playing in His memory at d ceremony."

The actor also tweeted that he'd worn his most colourful shirt for the occasion.

Here, he smiles as he stands next to his late father's photograph along side actor brother Raju Kher.
