"We'll miss him but we know he has lived a full life. We thank all those who have offered their condolences and prayers," Madhuri said in a statement.

The funeral was at 12.30 p.m at a crematorium in Oshiwada.

"The actress' father was staying with her. He had been unwell for a while and passed away at their Juhu residence in Mumbai," Madhuri's manager told IANS.

Her contemporary Sridevi took to Twitter to offer her condolences.

"Shocked to hear about your father. My condolences to the entire family. RIP Shri Dixit," she posted.
