Those in attendance, included Khanna's former co-star Amitabh Bachchan along with son Abhishekh Bachchan, Dia Mirza, Randeep Hooda, Randhir Kapoor, Jackie Shroff and Subhash Ghai among a few others.

An infuriated Kapoor tweeted, “Shameful. Not ONE actor of this generation attended Vinod Khanna’s funeral. And that too he has worked with them. Must learn to respect. Why this? Including mine and thereafter.When I die, I must be prepared.None will shoulder me. Very very angry with today’s so called stars.”

He also went on to comment on how several people showed up to party thrown by actress Priyanka Chopra instead, “Angry. Met so many chamcha people last night at Priyanka Chopra’s do last night. Few at Vinod’s. So fu**n transparent. So angry with them,”
