New Delhi: Legendary Bollywood actor and producer Feroz Khan died of cancer on Sunday night at his farmhouse in the outskirts of Bangalore.

The 70-year-old actor-director-producer, who had been fighting against the dreaded disease, finally succumbed at 0230 hrs at his farmhouse at Chicbidarakaval.

He was the recipient of several awards, including a life-time achievement award in Hindi cinema.

Feroz Khan's brother Sanjay Khan told reporters that the burial procession would begin at 1430 hrs and the actor's mortal remains would be laid to rest at Johnson Market burial grounds on Monday evening.

Several leading personalities of Bollywood have started arriving at his farmhouse to pay their last respects including Sanjay's son-in-law and superstar Hrithik Roshan.

Scribes were barred from entering the farmhouse.

Feroz Khan, who has acted in more than 50 films, had directed and produced several hit films, including Dharmaatma, Qurbani and Jaanbaaz. He had last acted in the film Welcome in 2007.

He is survived by his actor son Fardeen Khan and daughter Laila.
