Born as Syed Ishtiaq Ahmed Jaffrey, he was best remembered for his illustrious work in cinema as a fine comedian. He was known for the portrayal of Soorma Bhopali in Sholay. Jagdeep was 81 and passed away owing to age-related issues.
Jagdeep's funeral took place in Mumbai today morning with family and industry members in attendance.
Jagdeep's grandson Meezaan arrived to be with his family in the hour of grief.
The bereaved actor was clicked by the shutterbugs at the crematorium.
Meezaan, like his grandfather and father, stepped into acting with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Malaal in 2019.
