Bollywood's evergreen star Dev Anand's ashes will be immersed in the Godavari river in Nashik this afternoon.

Dev Anand's son Suneil is coming to India from London to immerse his late father's ashes in the holy river.

"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," Mohan Churiwala, a close aide of Dev Anand told PTI.

Churiwala will escort Suneil to Nashik from Mumbai.

The last rites of Dev Anand, who passed away in London on December 3 following a heart attack, were performed on Saturday at the Putney Vale Crematorium in London. A memorial service was also held at the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan in London, the same day.

In Mumbai, a memorial service for paying tributes to the departed soul will be held on Friday.

"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 said.
