Relatives and thousands of fans in Mumbai have paid their respects to India's "first superstar" Rajesh Khanna.

The 69-year-old died on Wednesday after a long illness.

Thousands of fans braved monsoon rain to pay their respects as his body was driven through the city in a glass coffin wrapped in white flowers, before being cremated.

Khanna made his name playing romantic leads in a string of films which were massive hits in the 1960s and 1970s.
