Actor Anil Kapoor, politician Sharad Pawar, Uddhav Thackeray and his son Aditya Thackeray were also seen at Dilip Kumar's residence.

Dilip Kumar, who had struggled with ill health in recent years, married actor Saira Banu in 1966 when she was 22 years his junior. He died in a Mumbai hospital early on Wednesday.

Born Mohammed Yusuf Khan in 1922 in Peshawar -- now part of Pakistan -- Dilip Kumar became a major star in Indian cinema's golden age between the 1940s and 1960s, starring in nearly 60 films in a career spanning 50 years.

"Dilip Kumar... will be remembered as a cinematic legend," Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Twitter.

"He was blessed with unparalleled brilliance, due to which audiences across generations were enthralled. His passing away is a loss to our cultural world," Modi added.

President Ram Nath Kovind said: "Dilip Kumar summarised in himself a history of emerging India. The thespian's charm transcended all boundaries, and he was loved across the subcontinent. With his demise, an era ends." He "will live forever in the heart of India", he added.
