Maqbool Fida Husain, once dubbed the Picasso of India, died early on Thursday morning in a London hospital at the age of 95.
While people speculated if he'd be brought back to his homeland for the last rites, his family reportedly said that he'll be buried in London.
One of the most celebrated contemporary painters in the whole world, Husain's paintings sold for a whopping $1 million at international exhibitions and auctions.
