According to NDTV Movies, Aamir Khan, star of the late actress's second film Ghajini, visited the family home to offer his condolences.

Other visitors to Khan's home included Sidhartha Mallya, Riteish Deshmukh, Naghma, Urvashi Dholakia and veteran actor Prem Chopra.

Khan's ex-boyfriend Suraj and his father, actor Aditya Pancholi, also attended the funeral. Suraj was the last person the star spoke to on the night of June 3 before she apparently hanged herself between 11pm and 11.30pm.

Khan's mother Rabiya Amin told police that her daughter had been upset over a failed audition in Hyderabad recently and was considering quitting the film industry. "She was fed up with the struggle... she was besotted with Bollywood, but Bollywood had nothing to offer her," said Amin.

Khan made her Bollywood debut opposite Amitabh Bachchan in 2007 in Ram Gopal Varma's Nishabd. She later appeared in Ghajini and Housefull.

Bollywood's biggest stars have paid their personal tributes to the actress.
