MUMBAI: Veteran actor-comedian Jagdeep, best known for his role as Soorma Bhopali in "Sholay", was laid to rest in the presence of family and close friends at a cemetery here on Thursday.

Jagdeep, 81, died at his residence in suburban Mumbai on Wednesday night.

There were around 10-12 people in attendance, including sons, actor Jaaved, producer Naved, grandson Meezaan, and industry colleague Johnny Lever.
